Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

It was a favorite with the enthusiast crowd around here, but there was a couple of general gripes that the mainstream angler never could get past. One was the weight. It was almost 10 oz. 2nd was the fact that it didnt have high line capacity given the heft of the reel. The theoretical 1016 version...

Re: Some nice baits

You should check out a Cabelas review of the Pop Max. It looks like you have a Pop X but one of the complaints about the Black Orochi Pop Max is........ "I ordered one of these in Black Orichi and there is a yellow /green stain on the back and half way down one side." :lol: :lol: :lol: :l...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

An updated Luna 103 would be interesting, and the downsized Z would be great. The Shimano Bantam is a beautiful machine.

Re: What's next for Daiwa...

It is not magnetic attraction. And yet there are magnets but it is not a magnetic attraction? My debate was over whether or not the "induced" field was variable as someone said it increased and decreased. I said no. The action, the induction FROM the magnets, is constant. The reaction, th...

Unfortunately, Shimanofan's user name checks out. Maxwell he is not. Flux cutting electro-motive force eludes his non-adroit, single spring-driven cranium. But hey - he contracted at NASA, Universal AND Disney so all technical authority is indubitably legitimate. Sigh...I will simply defer to legen...

Re: Original Daiwa Fuego Spool weight

22-23g IIRC.

The OG zillion spools were the same weight except for the CC which was 19g.

There are twp part numbers for the tdz-100 spools. One for left and one for right, although they are completely interchangeable. Not sure if that helps.

Re: MB vision 110 color

If you are bending the hooks, then your drag is too tight and/or the rod has the wrong action. The hooks are designed to be light for the proper bouyancy with three hooks. You need all three light wire hooks for those days when they are just swiping at the bait and not eating it.

Re: Megabass rod for swimjigs and frogs?

The DSR is only good with small frogs in open water. Not my first choice for frogs.

The Valdivia is indeed a sweet frog rod, and will do well with swim jigs through vegetation. The tip is soft and lets the fish take the frog well before you slam the hooks home.
