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

Which reels are the gen 4 and gen 3 spools compatible? I just found out the hard way that some gen 3 spools aren't compatible. The Deez IVCB spool for gen 3 Elite 7/8 does not fit the gen 3 MGX. Same diameter but the MGX spool is like 3 mil more narrow. 2011 gen 3s aren't compatable with 2013 gen 3...

Re: TD Z 7.1:1 RH gears

Pretty bad when 50% of the production run is total poop!! Gonna need to rethink the machining process! :oops: I chatted with the machinist and we think the pinion is getting deformed under the pressure during machining. Basically a deflection of the blank under the force of the tool...... :crying: I...

Re: TD Z 7.1:1 RH gears

Sorry I haven't been providing feedback. I'm afraid my set doesn't seem to be meshing well similar to LgMouthGambler's. They feel very tight and bind. I hadn't said anything yet as I was hoping I had just done something wrong in reassembly. I need to swap back in my original gear set and verify it ...

Re: TD Z 7.1:1 RH gears

Just sent you a PM, but i'll include it in the thread to share. "I have another 5 hours on the gear set and adding 8 more fish. Yesterday near end of mission, i heard a slight tick that seemed to repeat at the same interval during retrieve. It went away almost quickly as it appeared, but i set the ...

I dont know. Seems like they didnt mesh well.
Got them today, Looks like I have to point my finger at the machinist and do a better quality control before I ship these!! The pinion was machined on the wrong angle!! :x

Thanks for shipping them back!!

Updates on the testing. Hopefully these members can share their thoughts here on the sets they received?? LgMouthGambler set had issues and he said they locked up. I'm still waiting to receive them back to inspect what went wrong. :( IlliniDawg01 got his installed, But not sure he had a chance to u...

Re: building the 5.1:1 'crankin'steez'

Good numbers, thanks. Too bad the gearset is no more :(. I'm checking out other sister reels to see if something else is close. But other projects have me bogged down. If this becomes of great interest, I could have the oem set laser scanned and fabricated. Pretty pricey though.... Tried it with th...

The 103ML gear set...

Re: Zillion SV spools compatible with Zillion TWS Reels?

So there are spacers that allow a Zillion TWS to use the 1016 spool? I am lost, figured those two were not compatible without major modifications... If those parts do exist, that would be interesting. I know already all of the reels that ARE 1016 compatible, just don't know what Daiwa reels could b...
