Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Using parts I had on hand from other reel builds, I don't even have the full retail cost of the reel in it lol! Can't wait to see if it performs as well as looks. htt...

I have actually seen silver and gold ones before on those cheap Chinese reels on Aliexpress, so colors are possible. That being said, it would likely be cost-prohibitive to get a one-off custom color handle made.

Re: Drag stars for pixy type R?

Im pretty sure just about any Daiwa star will fit it. Almost any clicking drag star will work, though most will leave quite a gap underneath, where it overlaps the protrusion of the sideplate. I have a Steez SV star on mine.....it kind of steps down at the farthest edge, just like the stock PX-R st...

Re: Opportunity for a Kistler Helium lta?

I had the 7' Heavy from the same era as yours and it was a very nice rod. I sold it because the grip was so fat that my hand didn't sit right. At the time, I wasnt sure if that rubberized cork could be turned down to be thinner.....I wish I had kept it.

Re: Looking for my first 2 baitcaster!

You just cant beat the simplicity of Daiwa's Magforce in combination with the SV spool. Once dialed in, they are nearly impossible to backlash, even while pitching and skipping. The Tatula SV in 7.3:1 gears would be great for all-around use and the 8.1:1 is great for bottom-contact and pitching/flip...

Re: Stripped screw

You have to remove the nose piece of most reels to get to the pawl cap, then turn the handle til the levelwind is all the way to one side of the reel.

Re: Tatula CT gear swap to Tat SV gearset

Just wondering if anyone's tried the gear swap and can confirm it works? I haven't tried it, but 99% sure it will work. The spool and spool opening is the only thing different between the 2 platforms. I will let u know right after Christmas, as I have a 5.5 Tatula CT that I want to swap gears into ...

Re: Daiwa TD Zillion HLC

Throwing spinners an spoons upwards of half oz for salmon and steelhead. I've come to the conclusion that the spool is just a bit fast and need to be more disciplined with thumbing the early parts of the cast. My Tatulas and SV103 are much more tame! Yes, you have to use your thumb with the HLC. It...
