Re: Removing cotter pin to change Magforce spring

Thanks for correction! E- or C-clip sounds better. I just tried to imagine what it is and used dictionary... I tried to find pliers that will do the work but not managed. K.T.F. had some tool for job, but I didn't find that either. But luckily these very cheap tweezers did the work: https://www.tokm...

Removing cotter pin to change Magforce spring

Cotter pin needs to be removed to change Magforce spring. I have managed to remove pin from Steez 103 spool and from Alphas 70 spool. But Ray’s spool and I’ze HLC spool have been impossible to remove pin with my tools and skills. What kind of tool you have used to remove pin? I have used modified fo...

Re: Ice Fishing

Ice fishing is popular hobby in Finland because in Northern Finland lakes are frozen a half of year. Here is music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GknIJ5tPe4U , which has been recorded in a fishing contest in Kilpisjärvi: https://www.google.com/maps/place/99490+Kilpisj%C3%A4rvi/@69.0114478,20...

Re: Slp g1 CT shallow spool in 2020

Weight should be near to original spool. Difference in inertia comes from reduced mass of line.

Re: Cosugi Works Spool bearing

Yep, ASC spools are expensive. But when I was lastly checking, I found ASC reel in low price but there was Pixy spool... :D

Maybe that's cheapest way to get ASC spool to pixy reel to buy ASC reel and swap spools and then sell ASC reel with pixy spool...

Re: Megabass Lin / Daiwa Ryoga 1016 Spool Options

Steez 100 spool is obviously biggest capacity spool in this range:

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

Yes it looks better in video, but still in that price tag a carbon fibre crank should be used and higher quality knobs and maybe finer drag star. :) Spool looks very good anyway!

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

Comparing 34 mm Momo spool to 30 mm Roro spool there is significant difference in casting sub 3 g weights. I believe there will be significant difference also in 28 mm vs. 30 mm in lightest fishing. It makes lightest rods more usable in stream fishing because light spool is so responsible.

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

I love BFS fishing and in case of moment of inertia of spool can be reduced, it makes BFS fishing even more enjoyable. If momentum of inertia is small, lighter rod can be used. And casting control is better because smaller amount of magnetic brake is enough to control spool. Small diameter of spool ...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

Spacers seems hard to found and those tend to be a little pricey. It would be nice if spacers would be available from reel tuning part shops.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

Wishing that they will make less expensive reel for that 28 mm spool. Pixy with spacers? Or better; Zillion Air in Steez Air frame, but aluminium.
