Re: Daiwa SV/magforce and casting style

SV spools are brake happy. That's the point. I can pick apart cover and send finessing offerings skipping across the surface up into cover that was only doable previously with spinning tackle. Its been a game changer for me. If you are going to cast as far as possible out into the open then SV spool...

Re: New vs old greats for cranking.

Those TD Zillion spools are rockets. I've got one in an IP and it insta dumps the spool of 65# braid with a frog. You have to cast it with some authority or it will backlash badly. I would think it would do poorly with balsa cranks or other baits that catch the air and slow on the cast

Re: KastKing

Black Max, Lews ect. They are cheap China reels for the most part with a few platforms from one of the bigger Korean OEMs. Some of those cheaper china platforms made for a pretty decent sub $40 reel. Their thing was that they were a decent reel at a super low price point. Once they cost as much as a...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

Enquiry from the UK! I get that the ASC was designed for casting low weights , short distances in predominantly trout streams... I’m looking to cast up to 1/4 ounce max small cranks and ZMan Tubes / Bugz / Craws etc on my local river. I’m attracted to reviews of the smoothness of the cast with the ...

Re: Daiwa Alphas Air TW 2020

Nice. It has the bottom mount mag dial like the Steez CT reels. Poor man's Steez CT Air. I hope they make more based off this platform.

Re: Steez Gear Mods

I used the brass 6.3 gear set out of a sv103. I put them in my Steez SV 103. Worked like a charm. You will need the drag stack to. They are different sizes. Correct, the 1st gen Steez SV reels are the same frame as the original Steez SH reels, as are the TN and LTD versions. But wouldn't that mean ...

Re: What’s new from 13 fishing?

I'm sure they will have some new brightly colored thing for sale soon enough. Does color really matter? Once I pick up a Concept Z and throw my frog, I don't even think about what color it is, and I like how easy it is to figure out which rod has the frog. Brightly colored reels has sort of been th...
