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=...

Re: Deciphering Daiwa Model numbers

It is all platform dependent. In the three digit spools, they are as follows: Td-z 100m us trail and Zillions interchange Alphas and Sols interchange TD-z 103 and Steez interchange These are all "100" sized platforms. Although the SV103 is in a Zillion frame, it is not a Zillion!! The Alp...

Re: Deciphering Daiwa Model numbers

I'll take a shot at explaining Daiwa's naming scheme... (correct me if I am wrong) The 4 digit designation is more specific and will tell you spool diameter and capacity. The first 2 digits are spool diameter and the last 2 are spool capacity. First 2 digits: 10 = 34mm 15 = 36mm 20 = 38mm Last 2 dig...

Re: 300 size reel with these specs

The Lexa CC and Okuma Komodo SS are the only current LP reels that I know of with a clicker. The older Abu Toro NaCl does also. They all use an internal centrifugal brake design as does round reels like the Cardiff and Ambassdeur. Lexas with Magforce have true external control only. 14 Conquests wit...

Re: Reviews out on new 2018 Ryoga?

The 1520 G1 spool is compatible with the 1516 Zillion and vice versa.

Re: Reviews out on new 2018 Ryoga?

I have the 1520 HL. Initial impressions are that it is ridiculously smooth and solid. Easily smoother than my 15 Conquest 101HG. I got 16.19g for the 1520 spool weight with bearing.

Re: Long distance spool for sv103

I've tried the G1 1016 Spool from the Steez A and it casts pretty good in the SV103. Definitely a good deep spool option.

Re: Pinion Frame Hump

It is there to help prevent water from getting on the pinion bearing. Nothing more. On some reels like Metanium MGL that have a bearing on the spool, it is a support for that bearing. For the Curado K and some of our other models, it is only to prevent water from getting on the bearing. Thanks Bant...

Re: Pinion Frame Hump

That's more of a collar for the spool bearing. You'll likely notice that reels without this collar do not have a bearing under the spool pin on that side. Karl It makes sense that it would hold the bearing on Daiwa's free floating spool and Shimano's Silent Tune configurations. The Curado 70, Curad...

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Maybe that tick is from the bearings that come with it. No, I'm positive that it is the spool pin rocking back and forth inside the groove in the pinion gear. I took my Alphas SV with DIY spool out today and I heard the ticking sound too! I swore I did not hear it before reading this post :lol: I w...

Pinion Frame Hump

My buddy's Curado Is have recently been feeling gritty. After going through the reel we determined that the problem was the inner pinion bearing. Replacing that bearing made the problem go away. What we did notice after comparing it to the Curado K (and other reels), is that there is a hump most lik...
