Re: High end JDM rod recommendations

Conquest 843c Shimano jdm blank with a US warranty.
Save a few bucks and buy one used here in the for sale section. I have a few poison G’s and conquests, they feel very similar.= Awesome. The full cork grip is very nice. Drop a conquest reel on it to check all the boxes. :D

Re: parts for a daiwa td z/ito

Correct, that cup washer just hides the crank shaft by recessing down into the drag star. The crank shaft is milled so that this washer stops at a certain point and then becomes handle seat. Then the handle sits against it and snugs to it when the handle nut is tightened. thank you, that is the one...

Re: parts for a daiwa td z/ito

You cant put a swept handle on a factory TDZ star, you will need to swap the star to a swept star as well. Yeah. You don't need washers for clearance between the straight drag star and swept handle. You need a swept drag star. Make sure you also acquire the appropriate handle collar for whichever d...

parts for a daiwa td z/ito

Hello,

I am going to put a swept handle on a Daiwa TD Z (ito) and noticed that there are a few washers missing. These keep the handle from hitting the drag star when the drag is loosened. One is flats and one is rounded and kind of fits into the drag star.

Anyone know where I can purchase these?

Re: Questions about a td-ito baitcaster

Thanks, that is interesting, I would imagine that the a perfect washer material would be something that has a very inform flat surface with a consistent friction under many different conditions and loads..leather seems like leather would be variable based on humidity or temperature

Re: Questions about a td-ito baitcaster

The M and the H are different gear ratios, otherwise they are the same. As far as the handle, to add a swept handle, you are going to need a swept star drag. Daiwa Steeze, PX, and quite a few others will work as well. No kits, but you can get spool bearings as a kit, and then you will have to sourc...

Questions about a td-ito baitcaster

Hello, I recently purchased a Daiwa td ito 103hl project reed from here in the forums. After a quick clean up, I found that it is in pretty good condition and I am going to update it a bit but I am not sure if there are any internal differences between the 103m and 103hl. The drag is not smooth and ...

Re: Evergreen Super Stallion

I had the ss black, it was awesome. It is different from the original version, made more for moving baits as it had double footed guides and a slightly more parabolic action. I purchased it new, and took a pretty big hit when I sold it..kind of wish I kept it now. Was an amazing all around rod, supe...
