Re: Steez LTD

Another question on the Steez Ltd... I went to change spool bearing on the stock SV spool and noticed a big/heavy bearing cup on the spool shaft. This has to add 2 or so grams to this spool. I forgot the weigh it but the spool as a whole weighed around 15 grams. Anyway to take this bearing cup out ...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Fellas; I’m trying to learn about and enjoy tackle here and am losing the message among the slapping. Unfortunately I didn’t get as much out of that tear down tutorial as someone who knows the reel guts well would. So it is made out of the bronze, right? That’s the conclusion? A yes/no, other will ...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Nice find! A big slap in the face for the doubters and misinformed speculators.... As an FYI, in a previous post the author of that teardown speculated that SH weight difference was due to an Aluminum gear. Should we have been smacking him around? https://uo-log.com/morethanpetwreview/ Hyper digige...

Re: HLC spool for 3/8 oz baits?

Most of the water I fish now is very clear. Long casts are imperative. The bait I use most, 3/8 One's Bug. Would the HLC spool be effective? Thanks The HLC (1514 anyway) will cast certain 3/8th ounce baits very well with the right rod. But not a 3/8th ounce lure with a lot of mass like the One's Bu...

Re: Mail Call

Finally got this handle installed...all I can say is Bigly (or Big League).. rsz_1bigly.jpg The nice thing about that handle is that the Battler/Poker combo now balances on the lockdown nut, it was very tip forward even with that reel at 8oz with line. Feels much better in hand now. On to the other...
