What exactly is the finish on the reel? In some photos it looks chromed, but in others it looks like brushed aluminum with a clear coat.
First off, welcome to the forum. To answer your question, it is a slick silver-painted finish, likely with a clearcoat.

Re: USPS delays without any reason

Covid has little to do with it. They have sucked for several years now. I sent 2 custom rods to a friend, insured for $360, which is what he paid me for them. They got broken, then the post office refused to pay for them because they weren't listed for sale anywhere online. I sent them a $520 build ...

Re: Bass Fishing Bycatches

Can't remember if I posted this one already, as it was several yrs ago. A buddy's son caught this 5+ lb. bluegill on a crankbait, fishing an old rod that was broke off about a foot and re-tipped. The entire lure is in his mouth. That's a little mudhole in a cow pasture in middle GA, literally just a...

Sort of like when I bought $1600 roller skates for myself and $1000 skates for my teen daughter, just to spend a little extra time with her!
How many bearings do the $1600 ones have in them ?!?
2 bearings per wheel x 8 wheels. They are ceramics, btw.😜

Re: Fishing Misconceptions That You Wish Would Die

"If you are a good fisherman you shouldn't need nice gear" I have heard this one so many times and it really bugs me. I fished with a 7-foot heavy salt rod for a long time. I enjoy fishing so when I had the money I began buying nice gear. It the same as how car guys buy nice parts and golfers buy 1...

Re: Thank to someone

Someone on TT recommended changing the pinion gear on a baitcaster that stuck when trying to renegage it after a cast. I did that with a reel with that problem, and, presto, it works great now. A $5- part and now I have a fully functioning reel again. So a big thank you to whoever it was who sugges...

Hi guys,

dumb question. What screw driver do I need to open my CT SV up? :mrgreen:

Thanks!
It has Allen (cap socket) head screws inside the frame thru into the sideplate. Cant recall the exact size.

Re: Rotor swap

It's as close as I come to using expletives.....and I mean every time I do it, which has been many times. The parts will go flying due to the spring and no good way to hold the rotor in the correct position until the c-clip is re-installed, so do the swap with the spool and both hands inside a 1-gal...

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

speaking to who tried this reel....do you think it can handle hard hooksets whith 20# fluoro and a flipping stick, or frogging with 50#braid? the aluminum gears scares me a little... Our Australian members have used the Steez A to land 40# barramundi on a consistent basis with no reported gear fail...

QD Quick Drag - is it a new feature in Daiwa reels?
Wondering how it works.
Surprised it's not called hyper drag, along with all their other new hyper BS marketing.

Yeah I was going to buy an ultrasonic cleaner but then I think I would be too busy tearing down stuff to clean instead of fishing.
