Re: 17 Scorpion DC Gears

I forgot to follow up on this. Curado 200I gears should work but let me confirm. It's 5:00am in CA so I will have to wait until he arrives to get the answer. My apologies for not following up. No worries at all. Thanks for looking into this. I bought a 6.3 and it would be cool to have a 7.2 and 8.2...

Re: Weak Drag on OG Zillion

Thanks for the responses everyone. I finally got around to working on the Zillion. Since I have a few SV103s I swapped out the some of the parts and it made a significant difference. The washer that sits on top of the drag clicker and belleville washers is noticeably thicker than the stock one. A qu...

Re: It’s 2018, why are you buying reels from the past

In the last few years I've bought both older classics (OG Zillion, OG Steez, TD-Z) as well as newer reels (18 Ryoga, Curado K, Tatula CT). I've enjoyed fishing them all.

Re: Weak Drag on OG Zillion

what type of line are you using? I would try again with new washers and no grease to see if that helps. Drag should have been restored with new washers. I am using braid on that reel. I've put some electrical tape around the spool before putting the braid on. I forgot to mention but I've also tried...

Weak Drag on OG Zillion

I bought a used OG Zillion awhile back from Japan for a pretty good price. Everything seems pretty good with it internally and it feels smooth but the drag seem especially weak. I literally have to lock down the drag star as tight as I could for it to be usable, I would estimate about 3lbs of drag o...

Re: NEW: Daiwa Tatula 100 (based off Steez)

Daiwa updated their website and the 7.3 gear ratio is now a 7.1. Looks like it is a 34mm spool after all.

Re: Daiwa customer service could not help, maybe you can?

Plat is a good place to get the parts. I've ordered from them before and it has always worked out. I would suggest trying to get it locally first. I don't think Daiwa USA sells those parts separately, probably because 99% of users don't actually open up the spool assembly, instead they sell it as a ...

Re: My Collection of Reels

Now you need a sweet finesse spinning set-up Wow. I have not updated this thread in a long time. Too many reel acquisitions since then. I think I'm up to 16 casting reels now. I do have one spinning setup, a Shimano Saros 3000 paired with a Megabass Levante Shakeyhead. I guess I just don't use the ...

Re: Reviews out on new 2018 Ryoga?

I just spooled my Ryoga 1520 with 0.40mm mono line. I got 278 feet (~92-93 yards) on.

Daiwa specs it at 100m/110yards for 0.37mm line. Seems pretty accurate to me.

Re: Is there a way to increase the braking force on the OG Steez?

I've tried 2 SV spools in my Steez. Each spool has it's own personality. If I recall correctly, the SV103 spool (longer inductor), I have the brake setting on about 3-4/10. No higher than 4.5 The Zillion G1 SV spool, the brake is set higher usually around 6-7/10 up to around 8 max. I've tried the 10...

Re: Daiwa Zillion handle

The new Zillion TW HD definitely has a different handle and knob design I haven't seen before. Possibly it is just not compatible with the other standard Daiwa knobs. http://www.daiwa.com/jp/resources/fishing/item/reel/bait_rl/zillion_tw_hd/Zillion_tw_hd1520SHL_l.png?keepThis=true&TB_iframe=...
