Re: Ray's Studio vs HH Air BFS bearings

Yes, I'm sure. I'm talking Air BFS, not Air. I also have the Air BFS. I guess the Alphas Air must not use the spacer like other Alphas. It either has a larger stock bearing than other Alphas to eliminate the spacer or the bearing holder in the frame has a smaller ID. :-k Either way not having the s...

Re: Ray's Studio vs HH Air BFS bearings

Only aluminium housing, no metal spacer in Alphas Air with HH Air BFS. I don't remember how it was with Steez SV, I sold the Air bearings I had for Steez together with a SS SV because Air was better than Air BFS for what I use the Steez for. Are you sure? This pic of an Alphas Air spool shows the s...

Re: Levante combo - kind of like these

I have one of these with a 1010 spool that will be going on a Jerkbait Special when I get around to buying one. I was going to hold off a year but it is getting hard to resist. The gunmetal accents on the reel and suble greenish hue should look great on one of these sharp looking new Levantes.

Re: Ray's Studio vs HH Air BFS bearings

HH Air BFS bearings have the same type aluminium spacers as the Ray's bearings. I ordered some bearings with the last Ray's spool I ordered, I expect to receive the package late this week. I'm asking in case the bearings are bad, then I would order HH right away. It seems as I can wait and test the...

Re: Ray's Studio vs HH Air BFS bearings

Meh. I have a set for a Black Max and they are great value but not as nice as the HH Air. They don't fit tightly to the spool shaft and can allow the spool to rattle around a bit. They are fine for a budget BFS bearing for a budget build but if your reel is nice then get good bearings. Also keep in ...

Re: New knob styles

The Ryoga style Daiwa knobs are best to me. Really enjoy them on my Steez A, cannot believe that reel comes stock with those cheap knobs and no bearings @ $500 USD now. The new Tatula 100 knobs are the same as the "Ryoga" ones I mentioned I think, just wish they would equip those or the &...

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

I cast all the 50# braid off my Tatula SV and 65# braid off my IP68 wirh both the stock and HLC spool all the time when throwing frogs. I don't think the stated Daiwa line caps are even remotely correct. For example I'll cast all the line off in my yard and then go pace it out to 200 feet which is f...

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

As a finesse reel the reel is VERY tempting. I can understand the capacity concerns if you want to throw more normal sized bass baits though. I could definitely see capacity becoming a concern then.

Re: 100m spool in IP79

The stock spool is pretty good at skipping and pitching. I use my stock spool in my IP68 to skip jigs and pitch baits. I have a Zillion HLC spool in it I use to bomb frogs. That spool can cast all the 65# Super 8 Slick V2 off it with a frog. That spool screams.

Re: DC (Antares, Calcutta, spool tension, distance, etc.)

My partner bird-nested the sh** out of a Curado DC this past week, so DC is not infalliable if you're not paying attention :). Same for SV for that matter. It helps, but you can't go to sleep on it. What SV spools are like that? With my Alphas SV and Tatula SV I can pretty much go to sleep when cas...

Re: New Tatula100

I went to my local Bass Pro and got a chance to palm the new 100. It is compact and good palming reel. There was an SLX right next to it and they were similar in size. It considerably more compact than the CT. The aesthetics are a little funky though. I miss the color coded mag dials and glossy pain...
