Re: RCS 1016 (T3) vs. Zillion SV G1 spool

I've used the RCS1016 spool in the SV103 and it's fast. I feel like I need too much spool tension to keep it under control. I have a few G1 Zillion spools but haven't tried them in the SV103 yet.

Re: spool bearing pin removal tool

I use the SLP Works one. I like it a lot better than the Hedgehog version.

Re: Tatula model differences question ...

OG Tatula has an aluminum handle side plate where the CT has a composite one.

Re: Opinions, new spool SV105

Sent my spool to Ian Shields for a stiffer spring inductor tune and polish. I also run ZPI bearings. It really opens up the reel over stock.

Re: Tatula knobs with carbon handle on ryoga 1016 L!!!

How about the Megabass ones? They look pretty sweet, though not cheap. https://www.hedgehog-studio.co.jp/upload/save_image/20170306_e78951.jpg http://jpangler.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/m/e/megabass_lighttough_carbonh.jpg

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!
