Re: Rod Shipping

There are also the discounts given to volume shippers by robbing the little guy. Gotta find the green somewhere.

Re: ZPI Reel?

You change or you die. There weren't many reasonably priced carbon handles, performance bearing or custom spools 15 years ago. There are a lot of each now. They may have seen the writing on the wall and this was one drastic way to do so.

HLC spool for 3/8 oz baits?

Re: ZPI Reel?

Looking at close ups. That's a Daiwa frame. TDZ type. It most definitely is not. Shapes wrong, front plate is wrong, sideplates are wrong. It's from a Chinese or Korean OEM, most likely Doyo. The hood is totally Daiwa, possibly even Shimano. Here's ZPI, Daiwa and Abu: As pointed out, its not. I hav...

Re: ZPI Reel?

Sounds like Zpi is no longer distributing custom parts after 2018. The company is now going for the finished product in an attempt to market a wider customer base. So I guess my conclusion regarding this reel was accurate. I'm sure there will more reels released as well. So get your parts where you...
