Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

What are the chances we will see an update to the Zillion? New frame and get that brake dial recessed!

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 ...

Daiwa SLP/RCS Knobs?

Looking at some of the RCS/SLP knobs. What are the differences between the Super High Grip S knobs and the I shape cork S knobs? I have a pair of the I shape knobs in red on a daiwa Steez SV TW. I am looking at the Super High Grip ones in black for a Steez A.

Re: Steez A spool options?

Sounds like the Steez A crazy cranker will be in my future. I currently have 2 A’s in 7 gear. I have 2 SV TW a 7 gear and 6 gear. I have not experienced any issues with any of them. As mentioned earlier, I would like to see an upgraded Zillion (brass gears) where the palm side dial is hidden like th...

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 th...

Re: Steez A spool options?

I put the spool from the Zillion SV in the Steez A and was quite happy with the performance. I also placed a 90 mm carbon fiber handle with the I shaped knobs on. Lightens up the reel a bit as well. For what I am looking to do with the Steez A this is a pretty sweet set up.

Re: Steez A spool options?

Very good information in this thread! Thanks for all that have replied. I actually have a zillion Sv tw and will stick that spool in for a test drive. I am also hoping to lighten up the reel a bit with a carbon handle and rcs knobs. Less line on the SV spool will help a little with that project as w...

Re: Steez A spool options?

I use to think that the G1 1012 and 1016 were the holy grails of spools for the new Steez platform. Then I got a Zpi Nrc001-m, and was blown away. The Steez SV TW spools will run great in the Steez A, but the Steez A spool not so much in the Steez SV TW. I'm not sure why anyone would want to use th...

Steez A spool options?

Looking for shallower spool options for the Steez A. Something around 120 yds of 12 lb line. Will the SV spool from the Steez fit into the A? Would like to hear what all options are out there. Thanks!

Re: Curado K....5 gear ratio?

Would it be a realistic option to offer gear sets in a 5.5? That would at least give those few an option without the need to mass produce a curado k in a power gear.

Curado K....5 gear ratio?

Is there a chance we will see this as an option in the future? I understand that sales of the 5 gear ratio are far below the 6,7,8 gear ratios. Even if there are no plans for a 5 gear Curado K, it would be a nice option to offer the gear sets for those people who still prefer power gears for deep cr...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

Not to derail the thread ,but just a quick follow up on warranty from the previous discussions. Both rods are being replaced under warranty after their assessment. I won’t go into great detail but megabass stepped up and has been very good to work with. They have communicated well throughout the ent...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

The comment about “doing something stupid to break a rod” was my attempt at saying,I don’t mind paying whatever to replace a rod when it was my fault. In this case, these rods failed under normal use early in the rods life. Yes, I have broke 5 rods now. 2 non megabass which were totally my fault. 3 ...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

For the guys that broke their new xx rods. Why not just return the rods to the store vs going through the warranty process? I would hate to waste the one "free" warranty claim on a new barely used rod. I've got the Diablo and Brailist on pre-order, hoping for no issues with mines but some...
