The 782 felt like a power to half a power softer. The 783 felt half a power more.

The rda data that i saw afterwards confirmed that, but can't find that site anymore.

6'6" version of the old MBR 842 GLX

Just wondering if anyone's come across a rod tht would fish like the 66 version of the MBR 842C GLX (10-17 lb). The one I have is the older model with the ECS reel seat. Dobyns, Phenix, Kistler, etc.? Tried the 782 GLX and 783 GLX of the same generation, and they are nothing like the 842. Trying to ...

Not that any of us can understand it.
But body looks painted, circular side plate looks like the same finish as a Calcutta D?

Re: 2017 Daiwa Ballistic 1000D - Drag

Could it be the ATD feature?
Can't remember exactly what the drag grease does, but it either has a small start up to overcome, or the drag is related to the speed line is being pulled off.

Re: Daiwa SV103 drag star question

So is the drag tight all the time or loose all the time?

This may help? As it seems like there's variations of installing it depnding on reels/washers.

Re: 13 fishing CZB Bearing

Matt, thanks for your time in the detailed reply. As you say, probably the best way to find out is by trying it ourselves. For me, I think the next mental barrier is price point. For example, a Shimano ARB spool bearing is 1200 yen from Shimano JP. Bearings in various Shimano US reels are $10-$16. A...

Re: 13 fishing CZB Bearing

So many questions like What is the stiffness of the material? and can a high drag setting possibly deform the inner bore of the spool bearing? Are these meant to be lubed, or are they self-lubricating/impregnated? Are they subject to gradual water attack/degradation from weathering, particularly the...

My question to daiwa With the drag fully loosened, the drive shaft bearing is exposed, and tightened to normal fishing drag, the gap is just barely closed.
