Re: asian portal fishing

Purchased couple reels from them without any issues, fast shipping. Prices are is US dollars so PayPal does not low-ball you with their conversion rate. While they state free shipping over $100, you do get charged handling fee of $4.95.

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

To those who had a chance to fish this reel for some time now, what's you overall opinion, is it worth it? I'm looking to add another CT reel to my collection (have steez CT) but looking for something cheeper. Reel will be mainly used for throwing 1/8 to 3/8 baits.
Thanks

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

Received Steez air today....as previously noted drag star does not click and no audiable drag sound. Spool weight 8.1grams with bearing. It's too cold to fish in my area so I did few casts in a yard with 2.5 and 5gram plastics, put about 40 yards of 8lb mono on a light rod rated (1/16 to 3/8), don't...

Re: 2020 Luvias FC 2000S or FC 2500S

I have luvias ft2500s and compared to my 2 other reels, stradic ci4+ and ballistic fw2500s it is smoothest by far, feels on another level when it comes to refinement and how easily handle/rotor turns. Now, I haven't had a chance to fish it yet so not sure how if feels under load.

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

Watching some of the videos online, spool is little heavier than 30mm KTF spool for Steez CT which is surprising. Also, drag star does not click and there is no audiable drag like in Steez CT.

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

Wonder how they reduced weight by 15 grams compared to regular CT. Spool is probably around 4 grams lighter, handle/knobs combo don't look lighter. Spool, a little bit of porting on the frame and the zaion drag star. Regular CT has same Zion drag star. They must have ported main gear/shaft a lot. S...

Re: KTF Daiwa Steez CT SV TW available for order

Looks to be cheaper if you build it yourself, buy reel from digitaka and parts from ktf and you will be ahead even before reselling original parts.

Re: Daiwa KTF 30mm and 34mm Spool Availability

I've never purchased anything from Karil website, how much they charge shipping for smaller items; spools, lures etc to USA and is there any other fees? I'm finding only shipping charges for Japan areas.
