Re: Glue for butt caps

Any 2 part epoxy will work fine. Make sure to have 91% isopropyl alcohol on hand to clean up any excess. It wont hurt cork or EVA like other solvents will. Gorilla Glue makes a very good epoxy that I have used with excellent results.

Re: Need a differential diagnosis...

Maybe, but my rule of thumb is always change the complete gear set. Sometimes a new gear won't play well with a used one, even if its only slightly used.....go on, ask me how I know.... :oops: :doh: But you can try just the pinion gear first, cant hurt anything. Worst outcome would be that you have ...

Re: Tatula SV TW

http://www.daiwa.com/scandinavia/contents/reels/pro_tw100sv/index.html That is just a CT reel. Am I missing something? It's an SV tatula 100 /w the new tatula frame. There's a few videos on youtube. It has the "hardbodyz" frame. It's kind of hard to tell what exact frame the reel is on bu...

Re: Tatula SV TW

Hardbodyz is just an old Daiwa descriptive for aluminum-frame spinning reels. Not sure why they would dredge up that terminology.

Re: Tatula SV TW

I personally can't wait for the SV version of the newest Tatula. That reel fits my palm so well! http://www.daiwa.com/scandinavia/contents/reels/pro_tw100sv/index.html I saw that a link in another post a few weeks back.......but sadly, I'm just not a fan of purple accents on a reel. I've had a coup...

Re: Daiwa RCS knobs

I hate these more recent paddle style handles. Very uncomfortable. Same here. I replace all my paddle knobs with smooth black knobs, the stock ones from the OG Steez and Alphas. Same here, don't even like the Zillion Type R knobs that are so popular. I do have 2 pair of the Z200 knobs, one pair on ...

Re: Daiwa 7.9 PE Special

When you run flouro or mono, that bar will definitely tame the line. I had an OG Zillion with 25# Big Game mono that actually peeled the paint at the back edge of the hood away over time. I always run braid on most reels, so I really noticed it when I took the reel down for service after the first y...

Re: keitech 2.8 rigging

I use that size Kietech on the Zman Shroomz head, the ones made for their TRD worms (flanders/ned rig). The 1/10 oz heads plus 2.8 Swing Impact is perfect with my BFS setups.
