Re: TD-Z spools

I have a Steez 100h spool in a TDZ 103 and it's very nice but the R+ spool in my other TDZ 103 is my favorite caster.

Thumb bar not resetting when cranking handle

I fish with a guy who consistently has this problem on every reel he owns. I saw him pushing up the thumb bar after every cast and asked him what the problem was. Three different manufacturers, Daiwa, Quantum and some Johnny Morris reel all broken thumb bars that don't reset with turning the handle....

Re: Daiwa T3 1016 Reels today...

Personally I like the T3 ballistic 100. I just like it a little bit better with a different spool, a OG Zillion drag star and some sweet bearings. The only thing I never considered was changing out the handle. But I did get rid of the of the nut cover and installed the dark grey zillion handle nut. ...

Re: Daiwa T3 1016 Reels today...

Since I bought the ballistics and got them way cheap, it didn't hurt to much to upgrade spools, and bearings. The last one I got I picked up a mint one for $45. I never changed out the handles but after reading this thread I may look around for a handle substitute for all four.

Re: Daiwa T3 1016 Reels today...

I think all total I have four T3 ballistics. They all have upgraded bearings and spools. I fish with them a lot and really enjoy them...I will continue to pick them up whenever I see a cheap one in good shape.

Daiwa Alpha 150

So my son was looking at getting another Daiwa reel, his main two reels are the Tierras. He wanted to get an Alpha I assume a 103 or a 105, he got the numbers mixed up and bought a very nice 150. He got it yesterday and was a little disappointed, I think this is the JDM TIERRA. Other than the swept ...

I really don't mind the handle to much but thought I would put on a nut and handle nut retainer (nut p...
