Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

How did you fix the inductor with an HLC spring? Fixing the inductor means to affix it in the extended position. I would think an HLC spring would basically not allow the inductor to extend and the spool would under brake.

Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

Zodias 610ML BFS with Engetsu PG and Volkey 65UL with an SS SV with fixed inductor old style Ray's spool. The Zodias and Engetsu will dump all the 20# braid off the spool on cast with 4 inch Dinger or 4 1/4 Stick-O sitting down in a kayak. This is now my go to 4 inch stickbait rig out of the kayak. ...

Re: Tsurinoya Pro Flex II Spinning rod

Megabass rods are also know to have racing themes the the racing condition world edition. The idea is to convey that the rod is akin to a highly tuned peice of racing equipment. Bass anglers in japan are usually younger and more of a thrill seeker type angling for and practicing catch and release of...

Ray's TD Zillion Long Cast spool? You don't mean the regular Ray's spool for TD Zillion? I wasn't aware there was also a deeper Long Cast version?
If it's the PE Special HLC version, it's on ebay for $190.

Re: Tsurinoya Pro Flex II Spinning rod

With Kuying you have a Malaysian company that makes fishing rods in China. Similar to how Majorcraft is a Japanese fishing rod company that makes their rods in China. I would definitely put Majorcraft ahead of Kuying but Kuying targets their rods to anglers that don't want to pay Majorcraft money. K...

Re: Tatula sv vs TD-Z 103hl

Those reels don't come up for sale everyday. Nab one and try it out. The Tatula SVs aren't going anywhere. Very true. I wasn't even thinking about it like that. I can easily get the tatula sv if I don't like it. Thanks Good luck. I wished I hadn't passed on a Megabass variant of one a "cover hackin...

Re: Tatula sv vs TD-Z 103hl

Thumbing of the spool looks to be very difficult when cast normally. There doesn't look to be great access to the spool for thumbing when holding the rod by the grip and placing your index finger behind the trigger aka a 'normal cast'. These reels are meant to be palmed while pitching or flipping. I...

Re: Tatula sv vs TD-Z 103hl

I would hate to recommend a Tatula over a TD-Z but those weird lefty TD-Z are primarily pitching and flipping reels. They are ment to be palmed when "cast" which is fine for pitching but I can't imagine actually trying to cast one while palming it at the same time.

Re: 3D printed line guides.

It would be a cool way to develop a new level wind design or just test the waters with a proof of concept but as working parts they are god awful. We had to throw out a bunch of 3d printed parts when someone thought they could save a buck by having the small wear item plastic parts we need made loca...

These are my 2 strangest bonus fish. This came on a ned rig.

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

IP68 with TD Zillion HLC spool. 65# S8S V2. Before and after. I can spool a lot of reela on the cast with a Terminator Walking Frog but this reel will INSTANTLY empty the spool with a no effort two handed over the shoulder cast. I can make the laziest two handed cast and it will insta-dump the spool...

Re: Lexa 300 v. Tatula 200

The 200 does not have Magforce Z. Personally that is a no-go for me. What about the Tatula 153?
