Re: Zillion SV with a twist.

I thought those were Tatula CT based? It takes 1016 spools?

Re: Before I Buy Spool Question

Long cast mode? The inductor will still do its thing but the magnets will be much further away.

Re: Ss sv spool options

I've used the Steez LTD 105 in my SS SV. It was about the same as it was in the Steez LTD. I ended up using mine for finesse and have a Ray's DIY in it with stronger magnets from an IS73. The SS SV spool and magnets live in the IS73 urban camo for a future build.

Re: Daiwa tatula sv / tatula costal sv spool?

You can try one of the Ray's Studio Long Cast spools. They are air brake like the SV spools but have a stiffer spring and thinner inductor to brake less. You can find then on aliexpress for under $35.

Re: Engetsu BB100PG

I have not but I have no reason to believe it wouldn't be great at it. The reel is made for vertical jigging for snapper and should have a ton of cranking power. The spool is shallow and meant to be used with braid. It is actually a heavier spool than a Scorpion 70. If I were to use mine for cranks ...

Re: New 2020 Shimano Metanium

When the Bantam came out, people complained that the line guide was too close to the spool, affecting casting distance. Looking at this new Metanium, looks like the line guide is much closer to the spool compared to the 16 Met MGL. Makes me wondering if this new Met will actually outperform our old...

Re: Engetsu BB100PG

The Scorpion 70 based Engetsu and regular Scorpion 70 match the Zodias perfectly. Same goes for the old Tatula Type R

Re: New Ray's DIY handle

The CF ones are cheap and all but look too much like a ZPI knock off. These look interesting.

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

Yeah, I can't figure out why they didn't make the edges of the dial like the old TDZ mag dials were made. They put the sharp edge on the Steez, Alphas and Pixy reels, too. I never understood that. Even the Alphas, Pixy and Steez are slightly rounded on the edge. The Zillion TWS has a textured sharp...

Re: Low Profile Baitcaster With Brass Gears

I hadn't heard of the Shimano Engetsu. I also didn't see it on some of the more familiar Japanese websites. Maybe this reel is from Australia. There are a couple of Engetsu reels. The one you want is the Scorpion 70 based one. It is a JDM sea bass reel. You can get them off Ebay or from Japan or wh...
