Re: Zpi Nrc001-PG

I have not tried the ZPI PG spool in my Steez or TD-Z yet. So far only in my Zillion SV. Tension is set loose with a slight spool knock. Mag dial is on 8-10 usually.

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

I'm excited to see what Megabass will offer in their next generation XX lineup. I currently have 2 Levante, 2 XX, and 1 XXX, I'm sure I will be adding more Megabass rods in the future. In the meantime I took advantage of the great sale and ordered my second XX rod. :D

I got 14.62g on my scale. For comparison the Zillion SV spool is 12.19g. Both with bearings on.

Re: SV103 - How many do you own?

Curious if the SV103 reels are popular in Japan since it is made for the US market. I have a Zillion SV (also a great reel) and the spool is more responsive, but the SV103 frame just feels more comfortable, smoother, and robust. I have not tried the Zillion G1 SV spool in the SV103, but merging them...

It is not the stock drag star. I used a Zaion drag star from the Tatula Type R.

Re: Handle for SV105

The Tackle Trap is a great site if you want to upgrade handles. I upgraded my Alphas SV with a 90mm Zillion TWS handle. Looks very OEM and I feel the black on it matches the body better than the gunmetal colored stock handle.

Re: Tricking out an SV103

I have 2 SV103 reels. They're excellent out of the box so I didn't do much to them. The HL has 7.3 gears and ZPI bearings. The XSL has ZR bearings and a 100mm Zillion HD handle.

Re: Steez Rattling

I opened up the Steez and was able to bend the tabs to the frame. Worked like a charm. No more rattling. Thanks everyone!

I'll try that when I get the chance to open it up again. Thanks!

Re: Steez Rattling

That piece is just pressed into the side plate, isn't it? Maybe a dab of superglue on the inside of the sideplate at each tab and hold it tight together until it sets? Yes it looks like it's pressed in and held with tabs. I was thinking the same with superglue or epoxy but wanted to see everyone's ...

Steez Rattling

I just picked up my first OG Steez used. It cranks smooth and no weird noises. Today I took it apart to relube the gears and check the internals and after I put it together I noticed the gear side plate under the drag star is kind of loose and rattles. It is secured under the handle sideplate with 4...

Extreme HP 743/744C vs Orochi XX EMTF

Looking for feedback regarding the Dobyns Extreme HP 743/744C vs the Megabass Orochi XX Extreme Mission Type-F. Applications are weightless senko, 1/4-3/8oz T-rig, spinnerbaits, and swimjigs. My gut feeling is the XX EMTF based on the reviews that say how versatile it is. I've searched and read the ...
