I looked this reel ipt up and it said 26 ipt
Yet the 7.9:1 ipt is 33.2
The Steez 103H is 26 ipt. The 103XH is 34 ipt. The 103H is actually a great reel for resistance baits, up to the 6xd anyway.

Re: Zillion SV with a twist.

Yep, I've had my eye on those for awhile now. If that frame was a little more palm-friendly, I would have already ordered one for myself.

Re: Steez SV 8.1:1

Correct, the required amount of force is greater when increased speed or RPM are needed. In this case, the RPM are variable, depending on how fast you retrieve. That formula would yield a "freeze-frame of a movie", if you will. That's why it tires you out to reel a high-resistance lure with a high-g...

Re: Steez SV 8.1:1

That reel has the hybrid brass/aluminum main gear circ. Maybe replace those with solid brass gears in the same speed. But that wont change the amount of torque, as that is a constant based on the math. The diameter of the main gear and gear ratio play a part in that equation, but torque is inversely...

Anyone feel like this reel is lacking power on the retrieval of baits
Of course it does. It is 8.1:1. Anything that has high-resistance is going to feel sluggish using that reel.

my dealer said that a new Legend Extreme is being released this year.
Let's hope they don't mis-step with a crazy handle and SK reel seat, or recoil guides again. That was a tragedy, to say the least.

i hate the SK seats too on both spinning and casting.
Same here. The SK spinning seat is a mild annoyance for me. The casting seat actually makes my hand cramp up after a few minutes. I feel like the rod is gonna slip out of my hand, so I squeeze tighter on it than other seats.

Re: Daiwa tatula sv / tatula costal sv spool?

I haven't actually tried, but it is my understanding that the Coastal SV spool is 34mm. The Tat SV spool is 32mm, so it's a no-go of that's the case....but if that's true, then the Coastal spool should fit into a standard Tat CT.

Re: St. Croix stagnating?

Just my opinion, but I've always thought that they are WAY overpriced for what you get. Performance-wise, there are comparable rods that are $50-$150 less, depending on the series. I honestly think that the warranty is what attracts many to the brand.

Re: Do we have a Diawa Rep on here?

We had a Daiwa rep here awhile back, but they didn't respond to questions for an extended period of time. That sub-forum was locked due to this.

Re: Lower gear ratio for SS Air

Thanks again! I will have to call them asap and see what they can do. I talked to Bryan earlier today. He sent Daiwa an email and was waiting on a reply, but I talked to Daiwa customer service right after that. They confirmed the gear availability. $20 and change for the pinion gear and $22 and cha...

Re: Lower gear ratio for SS Air

Well plat said they couldn't get those parts for me. I guess I will have to look elsewhere for them. Maybe tackle trap will respond eventually. The 6.3 Steez SV gears will drop right in, but you will also need the Pixy drag stack from the Tackle Trap. Your reel has a single-washer drag system. The ...
