Re: Long distance spool for sv103

Anyone done a comparison on the ZPI Pg vs the SLP g1 SV 1012 or 1016? I compared ZPI NRC M and stock Steez G1 1016 SV spool. ZPI casts really great! Brakes wise, with SV spool I could use it on 6-7 on MAG dial, with ZPI had to go up to 11-12 using same baits. Line -14lb Sunline Sniper ZPI obviously...

Re: Braid vs Fluorocarbon as main line

I used to fish a lot with a braided line mainly because I used spinning reels, but when I finally switched to baitcasting combo's, I also switched to fluorocarbon and nylon lines. Fishing mostly in clear water without vegetation I can't use a thick braided line, I will have less bites when I use a s...

Re: Has anyone weighed Shimano Expride Gen 2 rods?

Look at Japanese Shimano, Daiwa, Megabass, etc websites. They do include rod weights.

Re: Which 12 pound fluro to get?

Get the YGK F1 Waker Highpower fluorocarbon, very sensitive and thin line. I am really liking the YGK 112 braid that I am fishing. This makes me interested in their fluoro. What other fluoro(s) would you compare this F1 line to? Is it as hard as Shooter? I never tried Sunline Shooter. YGK F1 Waker ...

Re: How to walk a frog and what frog walks the best?

Short rod (6'6" - 7'0") is the key. Most of the folks have 7'4" and higher for frogs.
All my topwater rods are 7'0" or under.

Re: pros/cons, steez sv tws, us or jdm model?

I really doubt what JDM reels (when we are talking about same model (Metanium MGL, Steez SV TW, Zillion TW SV)) made better than same reels for US market, AU, EU, etc. The only difference - boxes and manuals. And I absolutely confident what USDM reels are not better than JDM counterparts. It doesn't...

Re: Metanium DC - maintenance

Do the spool bearings only, soak them in acetone and lube (one drop) with oil you like.
Maintenance in general, all depends, I usually do my reels once in two years completely taking them apart.

Re: Steez A SV?

The bushings are probably because of the use in saltwater. Also, check these reel covers out: https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32611794288.html?pid=808_0000_0109&spm=a2g0n.search-amp.list.32611794288 Pretty sick for the money. Are pretty close to the real thing. I have some and they work great. Th...
