Re: It's True: ElaZtech does indeed melt...

I'e also seen them sorta melt or oval out into a flat blob while still in their packaging in enough heat. I always keep a bag of turds (various colors in one original bag) in my car and never had that happen. I been doing that since the first time I heard about them melting in the heat and have yet...

Re: Ray's long cast spool for tatula ct.

Isn't the long cast spool the fixed inductor spool? I just got the "long cast" spool for the Steez and it's an adjustable fixed inductor spool and really solid build unlike the DIY spool for pixy i own. Not the one for the Tatulas. It is basically a deep regular ray's spool. I wish they had this de...

Re: New Curado 70 mgl K

Not sure if this has been brought up already, any word on the Scorpion version of this reel. Will Shimano be producing a Scorpion 70 k? They have produced a scorpion version of all the newest curados so far so they will most likely have one of this model coming out. I'm hoping they do anyways, I'd ...

Re: Magforce-Z induction activation revolutions?

I think I can see what you are refering to in the video. Have you tried duplicating this at lower than max brake settings, something closer to what would normally be used while fishing? It is interesting and something I have never been able to see with the SV spools that I own. In my head I imagine...

Re: Daiwa Air Stream Custom Problems

The thin braids have this issue. You can under fill slightly to help mitigate this but switching to a larger diameter line is the only way to solve it. I was also under the impression that the Alde BFS was one if the worst offenders of this based on the number or reports but that could be because it...

Re: Magforce-Z induction activation revolutions?

Sorry but we will have to disagree here, for a magnet to have an attractive force on the extension of the inductor it is going to have to act on something that is also magnetic, iron, nickel, cobalt. Aluminum is not magnetic and that is what your inductor is made from. As far as I can tell there is...

This image is from Daiwa on the operation of Air Brakes (SV) https://www.daiwa-france.com/uploads/2015/3/air-brake-system_350x350.jpg If you follow this link half way down the page you will see an SV spool in a dremel spinning with the inductor fully extending and retracting using only centrifugal ...

Re: Magforce-Z induction activation revolutions?

Video showing Air Brake activation at maximum brake and minimum brake. The black ramp attached to the spool can be clearly seen separating and seating against the spool side ramp at max brake. Does not occur at minimum brake. Spool is an Aliexpress spool with Air Brake. Inductor is thinner than the ...

Re: Daiwa guys?

Overbraked poor man's last gen Steez with a weak drag. Not a bad reel of you can get one cheap enough. I played $140 for my SS SV105 which is the superior version. I wouldn't pay over $120 for an SS SV103 like new with box and paperwork. You're going to have tl spend $50 on a new spool and carbontex...
