Re: Zander's first Pixzilla (light)

Zander looks like he is enjoying that pixy now. He sure has a nice boss.

Re: OG zillion Spools and behavior

The IP 79 has the same spool as the J Dream, It is going to cast lighter weights than the standard zillion spool.

Re: Can we talk Alpha for a second

I have that stock spool from the 105 finesse custom. It's pretty nice; bombs flukes on 6 lb. Hybrid. I dont pitch with it but I could try it. The finesse custom has a decent spool. It can cast down to about 1/8 oz. The SV 105 is going to be better for skipping. I guess it comes down to do you want ...

Re: ZOOM!

GLX 803c and TDZ ? Zoom is awesome. I had thought of that, but never found a used one for cheap. I have a M/XF Avid that I use for popper/flukes and didn't like it for my Trickworm-dreams, but I don't like XF rods much as GP rods, which the ideal Trickworm rod will need to be. I will look into the ...

Re: Can we talk Alpha for a second

If your wanting a swept handle, 7.2:1 and a sv spool that is going to be better for skipping and pitching, your better off getting a SV 105 because it comes with that already. The sv 105/alphas/sol reel is smaller than the alphas 150 reel. Is it going to have the line capacity for that 7'1" X7 rod i...

Re: Can we talk Alpha for a second

The term coined here on this site was "Alphasaurus". The TD Advantage and the JDM Alphas 150 share the same frame. Then the TD Sol and the Alphas 103/105 share the same frame. There was a shallower stock spool from one of the JDM variants built on the 150 frame, but I cant remember which model. The...

Re: Increased shipping fees

Shipping prices are up because they have to use a different shipper. Items are at a standstill @ Japan post/ems right now.

Re: New Rod to go with new reel

Been close on that rod a few times but could never tell how ML it is?? All their rods seem super powerful. Still want one tho! Seems to have a soft tip with a decent backbone. Was casting a 1/8 oz flick shake jig and worm in the back yard, then put a gambler sweebo 6.5" worm on it. Will be fishing ...

LED Desk Lamp for working on reels.

Got tired of working on my reels without enough light, so I bought this at the Home Depot today. Very nice, compact, 6 levels of light and 5 color temperature light settings. https://i.imgur.com/uOUCE2I.jpg https://www.homedepot.com/p/Adesso-25-in-Black-and-Silver-LED-Desk-Lamp-with-Color-Temperatur...

Try leaving you tool box drawer open in Iraq and letting that hot sun bake those tools. Ouch. To learn to close/cover real quick.
Yeah, when I was in the Army at Ft Irwin CA. Working in the desert in the mid day sun, I'd wear gloves to keep from getting burnt hands.

Re: Need Help, New Spinning Reel

Ask them to ship DHL, won't be held up like Japan Post EMS will. There is the 6.0:1 Twin Power 2500SHG or the 6.4:1 C3000XG.
