Re: Daiwa Zillion SV TW

I use mine for big swim jigs and chatterbaits now, but I originally used it for flukes and senkos. It handles both equally well. I get good distance with it, but I've never tried skipping with it, because those duties go to an Alphas SV.

Re: What spool ?

From your other posts, I gather that you use and like very small braid. This should fit your needs nicely. And as luck would have it, the silver spool is the only one in stock. It matches the Sol very well. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/DIY-DAIWA-ALPHAS-SV-105SH-CUSTOM-HONEYCOMB-FISHING-REEL-SPOOL...

Re: Kuying Teton

There have been lengthy discussions on the Kuying rods, and a lot of positive feedback. Keep us informed of how you like it. If not for that annoying SKS split seat, I would have already bought one.

Re: "new Black Widow" NFC MB 736-1 (X-Ray LMX)

How did you get an Edge reel seat? And the woven grip? Did you remove it from a different rod? I'm 100% sure those parts were available from NFC at one time, but not sure if they still are. I was considering it for one of my custom rods, until I tried out a Wiebe seat on an old G. Loomis rod. I'm f...

Re: Zillion SV spools compatible with Zillion TWS Reels?

They will fit into the OG Zillion, but there is a gap around the edge of the spool. Zillion spools are 36mm and the new Zillion SV spools are 34mm. There are spacers out there made by ZPI, but they are rare and expensive. Another option is to have spacers milled, if you know a good machinist. Last ...

Re: Spinning rod - new Tatula or Phenix Feather

I had the 1st gen tatula rod and a phenix feather, both in medium power. Hands down, the feather is more sensitive, and the feather was a little lighter than the tatula in power. The tip on the feather is softer, but I would still pick it over the tatula. I never use spinning gear at all, so both we...

Re: Break offs

Say goodbye to fluoro. Biggest garbage sales pitch in fishing IMO. 100% agree. No way can anything in crystal form be flexible. Same principle with soft plastics that are loaded with salt. That's why those baits damage so easily. On the other side of the spectrum, I've hung up with 15# CXX and coul...

Re: Break offs

I broke new 20# Tatsu twice on the hookset a few yrs back and it cost me $600 in a local tourney. Set the hook on a 4# fish and a 6# fish and POP! It broke back up from the knot a couple feet both times, and we lost the tourney by 8#. It was shortline pitching to visible beds, and my reel had carbon...

Re: MajorCraft Speedstyle 610+MH?

I’m no familiar witht the PTS reel seat. Looking at it, it looks just like am ECS seat or am I missing something? It's different - wider, not as comfortable for smallish hands. Just my opinion of course ^What Mark said^. I sold the Speedstyle rod I had specifically because of the reel seat. I like ...

Re: Hooks-Sealed line tie

Seal the hook yourself. Either tie a knot with thin line, then drag the knot to the crack and cut it loose, then re-tie, or use a dab of epoxy. I have done both. I like Trokar hooks, but the gap at the hook eye is pretty noticeable on the larger hooks, like the Big Nasty worm hooks. Those get a quic...

Re: Let's talk UL crankbaits ...

I've noticed this, as well. I just got a custom UL Immortal casting rod built back in the spring and have an SS Air on it. Since it is specifically for UL crankbaits, I swapped the 6.3 gears from my SS SV 103H into it. Then as I started looking around, I realized that there's a lot less to choose fr...
