Re: Spool Spacers

Good luck finding the 36 to 34mm spacers for your zillion.. They were produced for a very short time and not many people will part with theirs. The 33 to 30mm will not exist, and wouldn't work too well since the 30mm spool is also narrower than the standard sized spool. You would also need to swap o...

Re: Tatula sv vs TD-Z 103hl

I ended up buying one of the funky framed left hand tdz's. It looks perfect in the pictures and has had the drag upgraded and the handle was switched out for a 90mm zillion handle and zillion type r drag star so I'll try it like that and maybe keep an eye out for it and that type r+. I think I saw ...

Re: Why don't people like Hot Sauce?

I used it on a couple bait casters.. While I didn't have any bad results, I didn't care for the red stained parts later on.

Just like hoohoorjoo, I use Abu Silicote for all moving parts and Cal's drag grease for drag washers and gears.

Re: G.Loomis/Shimano Swimbait Rod/Reel/Line Advice Please

Great collection there MTBF! I gotta get some of those Big M 4.0's!!! I'm kinda in the same boat you are.. Transitioning to throwing bigger baits more regularly and not so much finesse. I just moved from Iowa to St Paul, MN, so fishing northern MN lakes as well as a trip to Ontario once in a while :...

Re: Older Daiwa 7.x ratio reels

The TD-Z was a step up from the TD-X. http://jdmfishing.com/daiwa/td-z/ There is one gear set available for the LH TDZ 103ML/100ML, and it is a 7.1:1 ratio available from The Tackle Trap. If you like the size/shape of the TD-Z/TD-X/TD-S, then have a look at the original Daiwa Zillion. Same shape/siz...

Who made the spacers? I keep looking for a set of 36 to 34mm spacers, but cannot find any. I have one set of 36 to 32mm in a "Big Bass Special"

Re: **Hand me a Lando Calrissian moment this afternoon**

Awesome write up / notes and pics Cristo! I'm in a very similar boat starting down the swim bait path and making a concerted effort / dedication to just throwing big baits this year. Moving from Iowa to Minnesota, I've sold all my Hudds and replaced with hard baits and stocked up on paddle tails, pr...
