Re: 2020 Zillion 10

I'm not feeling this one... yet. It just seems that they updated the old frame with the zero adjuster, new paint job/cosmetics, and the recessed brake dial side plate. None of those things are bad, I just wish they had maybe used a newer frame, like the Steez A. Would love to eventually see an alumi...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

Been waiting for the new Zillion a while now, probably just gonna step up to the Steez CT though instead. Nothing wrong with this one, just not sure the specifics yet or if they will offer any non ridiculous ratios. I would be a little disappointed if this was just an updated Zillion SV TW or an upd...

Re: High Speed Reels (9:1 Type)

If everything is built to fair quality, that KK looks alright. I wish they had shown the braking system a little better though.

Re: Getting into BFS

I use a Tsurinoya Proflex 2 with a Zillion SV TW and DIY spool. Works good for me for 1/8 and okay for 1/16 with plastic even. I don't suggest anything but light braid though, I use 6lb Sufix 832. Really fun relatively cheap setup that catches fish anywhere.

Re: How are BB1’s so smooth w/o bearing supported pinion gear?

Yeah, my point was just that it doesn't truly match what X-ship is, whether or not it makes a huge difference or makes a reel amazing I don't know. Didn't mean to down Lew's.

Re: How are BB1’s so smooth w/o bearing supported pinion gear?

BB1 is a workhorse for sure, they remind me a lot of the old curados , E series and the ones before. I have a 5:1 for 6xd's and those size baits , love it. I think most of the new reels you see from lew's , from here on out will have the P2 bearing supported pinion. They already have it in the MP t...

Re: Tsurinoya Pro Flex II Spinning rod

Sorry, should have seen this and given a response quicker, just haven't fished in a while here (waters are no good and moved to a new house). I own the baitcasting version, the 6'3"UL Proflex 2 and I love it. I have caught a ton of small to medium fish, the rod has held up great. I use 6lb Nanobraid...

Re: How are BB1’s so smooth w/o bearing supported pinion gear?

My BB1 Pro wasn't too bad, but I didn't think it compared to my original Tatula Type R, older Zillion TWS, Chronarch MGL, etc. I know some of those are more expensive and newer reels, but it didn't really stand out to me. Mine was the 7.1 BB1 though and I used it for some pretty deep cranks and heav...

Re: A Quality FC Line from Hi-Seas : 100% Fluorocarbon

Their Quattro camo fluoro is even better. One of the lines I push hardest to others. It is a bit thick compared to others, but the 10lb works great in the place of 12lb other brands (like InvizX or Sniper). I have also used the 12lb in situations where I would normally use 15lb for jigs, chatters, m...

Re: Fuego CT for finesse?

I haven't used that exact reel with a Ray's DIY, but for my old 1520 Zillion TWS those spools turned it to a casting machine. I had a friend who ran a Tatula CT with one of the DIY spools but I don't know which one. He used it with 8lb fluoro (didn't hold much) and it would easily out cast other sto...

Re: **Wow Askren didn't even get a 3 piece and a soda!**

Nice to know another person watches MMA. I was kinda bummed about this, but at the same time... Really didn't want to see his style take him to the top. What was the deal with Masvidal not liking him so much???

How can I get into i-cast? I'm not in the fishing trade, per say, though I did sleep in a Holiday Inn Express... sorry couldn't resist. But seriously, I'd like to go. I do have a certification and side business as an archery instructor. Do you did I could get in claiming my interest is in bow-fishi...

Re: ICAST 2019

I'd like to see the Steez A and Steez SV TW modified to where the mag dial is at the bottom of the palm plate, making it a more streamlined platform while still retaining the 34mm spool. If they needed to downsize the TWS to prevent the bulbus profile, I would be good with that too. And Jeez..$500-...

Re: ICAST 2019

Maybe, maybe... concerning the Zillions that is. I just don't know what will happen though, because they upped the Steez A to $500 and now they have a super premium priced Steez CT SV. I feel like that frame size will be the next front running tech Daiwa pushes. I just don't know if they'd offer bra...
