Re: Gear replacements

replaced two gear sets on the Met2013. Those thin and ultra light alumium gears shimano uses in many reels are garbage in my opinion. This raspy noise and feel is so annoying when you're retrieving a decent resistance bait such as a spinnerbait The Met 2013 stock gears are notoriously bad for produ...

Re: Anti Reverse Bearings

its mainly the sleeve that needs replacing due to corrosion or pitting, But the bearing itself also suffers the same. The antireverse bearing and sleeve are the most overlooked item when trying to find the source of vibration in a reel. people will change bearings and gear sets only to find its the ...

Re: Daiwa SLP/RCS Knobs?

Makes sense and I’m glad to hear they have the same basic shape. I’m still not a huge fan of the paddle style knobs on the Steez A or the thinner/flatter knobs on the SV TW. I think I may go with a set of the high grips for the Steez A. I’m very interested in seeing what others have done to upgrade...

Re: Daiwa Zillion SV TW

yes that is so . The zillion sv spool is less restricted than the steez Sv tw spool, the steez spool has a deeper inductor cup that protrudes further into the magnets. not as deep as a SS SV spool though. the best spool I have found for lighter stuff in the sv spools is the SLP G1 1012sv

Re: Daiwa Zillion SV TW

Does it have brass gears or aluminum?Cant seem to find any info.. yes the zillion 1016sv does have brass gears, the only let down of the reel is not having a alloy sideplate and set plate. I don't see that as a negative. That's the main reason it's over an ounce lighter than the original. It's ever...

Re: Best Baitcasting Reels for both Salt- and Freshwater Fishing

if you want the best forget about the budget and get a Steez A and a Ryoga 1016 (the old model) as still don't trust micro gears for heavy use.

Re: Steez A spool options?

This is an interesting topic on gears because I am interested in the crazy cranker Steez A. I have not pulled the trigger due to my concerns over deep cranking with aluminum gears. Does anybody have any time on the crazy cranker A? My thoughts were to maybe go with the JDM Zillion SV TW 5 gear. I t...

Re: G1 1012SV in an SS SV?

I have tried my SLP 1012SV G1 spool in the SS again, and while it is fast I am quite enjoying it and gets very good distance.

Re: Daiwa Zillion SV TW

The SV Zillion G1 spool is a gem. I use these spools in 2 of my Steez A's and Have a Steez SV G1 spool in my other Steez A and the Zillion spools have the edge for distance casting, the Steez SV spool has a deeper inductor cup.
