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...

Re: ICAST 2019

I know Daiwa has multiple new models to debut. I'm excited to see them and try them out. Yes indeed. I've fished quite a few of the new introductions, good stuff coming for sure from our Daiwa friends =D> Spinning? Casting? Or both? Just like another post said, I don't have a clue what is coming, t...

Re: Tatula CT gear, interchangeable with larger/OG tatula and similar bodies

I actually tried changing out a Tatula SV XS and a Zillion SV HS because I wanted a faster Zillion before actually buying the 9.1:1 gear set, and the pinion gear for a Zillion SV is different than a Tatula SV. The top of the pinion on a Zillion SV is designed to go up into what is the spool bearing...

Re: Thumb bar not resetting when cranking handle

Also depends which 3 reels you are talking about. If they are all older with decent wear (or an angler rough on gear), it isn't THAT uncommon of a problem. I have only had 1 reel ever do that, my gen 3 Revo Winch. My Winch did it almost every cast, I broke it down, cleaned it good, and sold it. The ...
