Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

https://i.postimg.cc/gcy5x2xT/Screenshot-20181213-011648-2.png Another look at the new Steez. It sort of looks like there is a deeply recessed mag dial in the palming plate but that could be a push button to remove the plate like the T3 reels had. It would be a big push button though. Much bigger t...

Re: Daiwa Zillion TW HD 2018

Unfortunately it is a fixed inductor spool. It has Magforce rather than Magforce Z. This is usually a bad thing but you never know for sure until someone gets their hands on one as early adopter and provides feedback. There is currently no feedback on how the reel performs. It is also derived from t...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

What's this blurry thing. It looks unlike any Daiwa on the market. They cleverly switch to a Tatula 100 in the next frames with the same background but that does not appear to be a Tatula 100. https://i.postimg.cc/FHjmJrXT/Screenshot-20181211-214051-2.png fallout frank horrigan https://i.postimg.cc/...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

https://i.postimg.cc/MHYXVYSs/Screenshot-20181211-183421.png That small lump looks like the plastic lip around the mag dial to me but it is hard to tell. Normally the Steez TW reels do not have this. The presence of this lip would indicate changes to the palming plate of the reel.

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

https://i.postimg.cc/y63xxg70/Screenshot-20181211-142107-3.png Looks like slight modified Steez in this pic. You can see the mag dial protrude from the palming plate in the usual position but looks like it has a plastic lip around it. The plastic beneath the dial appears to be reduced or removed. L...

https://i.postimg.cc/05Xb4DLY/Screenshot-20181210-221746.png what does a forensic anthropologist do on a daily basis This thing. I thought it was an old Tatula at 1st because the top of the frame is so flat but has the Steez logo on the face plate. Looks to be some new Steez reel.

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

https://i.postimg.cc/fRmbrXvb/Screenshot-20181210-205402-3.png Looks like the Tatula 100 to me. Exposed mag dial. White blob on the front is likely the white Daiwa logo found on the Tatula 100. The mag dial is not visible when casting due to the angle of the reel but when he is speaking to the reps...

Re: What reel for frogging on a MB perfect pitch?

if it is a gen 1 the Curado K sure would look nice on one. Although... a Megabass rod is deserving of a Megabass reel. :big grin:

Re: Daiwa Tatula Handle Nut Cover?

I use a nut, retaining ring and screw from a Ray's DIY handle on my old Tatula Type R. You can get them on Aliexpress pretty cheap and in whatever color you want.

Re: Monoblock - Why?

Monoblocks are considerably smaller than the 1016 sized Ryogas. The reel takes TD-Z 103/Steez sized spools but requires a longer pinion from a Pixy or Alphas to make the 103 spool conversion possible. The stock spool is not that impressive. A conversion to 103 is common wirh these reels. I have a re...

Re: Casting vs. throwing your back out

It is very lake dependant. I think fish that hang around docks in crystal clear bodies of water with a lot of pleasure boat traffic acclimate to that environment and don't mind biting around boats and people. I can toss baits at docks 6 feet away and pull bass of all sizes out of it. I've even seen ...

Re: Need a Pitching and Frog Rod...Help...

I have the gen 1 XX PP and it is perfect for frogging and pitching. I hear the gen 2 rods are softer and more moderate than the gen 1 but the gen 2 stick should still be adequate.

Re: Casting vs. throwing your back out

I heard the Curado DC was tuned to brake for how we cast in the US whatever that means. Shimano at least seems to acknowledge that there is a difference in casting technique between the US and Japan.

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

FYI, I finally purchased a gen 4 and the gen 3 spools are compatible. I found these with a search for a gen 3 spool and should fit the new gen 4's. I may purchase one and see if a mod will allow IVCB braking?? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/DIY-fishing-reel-spool-for-REVO3SX-wheel-accessories-13-8...
