tsi 321

Did a search and couldnt find anything for quite a while on 321 for spool bearings and level wind. For those that use it do you still like it? How long does it last or does it last longer than oil? Can you put oil on top of it after it has been used for a while? I only fish fresh water but it is usu...

Re: handle zillion type r

Did the cup washer come off (what the handle seats on when the handle came loose)? If so, the shoulders of the the shaft are just eating into the backside of the handle. Pics would help figure it out, if you can post some up. this must be what happened. I looked at my 50th anniversary zillion, but ...

Re: Tatula sv vs TD-Z 103hl

don't need to hold anything down, just press the button. You can press button down with your thumb and hold spool at the same time or I just move my thumb after pressing button. I have 2 tdx and 1 tdz with that feature and have been using them since 2003 with no problems. No experience with the Tatu...

Re: Big Braid for Big Baits

I use 65 b pp with no problems. The biggest I usually throw is a 4.5 oz baby possum and don't use a leader. When you get to those size baits I think the fish don't key into the line. To qualify most of my water is stained.

Havent used a spinning reel going on 18 years and looking for one where I can feather the line coming off the reel with my index finger on my casting hand. Must have smaller sized hands as my f...
