Re: TD Zillion drag star

Isn't the drag star on the 50th lighter in color than the normal Zillion perhaps matching the original TDZ better? Yes, it matches almost exactly....but I'm pretty sure that part sold out long ago. I tried to source one 3 yrs or so ago with no luck. But this is TT, someone is bound to have a takeof...

Re: TD Zillion drag star

You might also need a extra spacecraft washer. On some TDZs, the collar hits the silver handle
bearing sleeve when the drag is really tight.

Re: Daiwa SS Air vs Daiwa SV Light for BFS

The SV Light is what you want if casting 3/8 oz. More line capacity, yet plenty capable of casting your intended range. The spool should also be stronger. The feel of the reel itself will be more similar than not. I gather the sv light would be more suitable for braid as well. plan on using 6lb bra...

Re: Post purple

Vinnie's explanation of the necessity on this particular rod convinced me to try it, though I've always thought it was just a gimmick on most rods. But it really works beautifully on my rod, and it has Fuji K Ti/SiC micros. I still dont see the need on anything more than a medium powered bass rod, t...

Re: Post purple

So maybe I am behind, but I am the kind of person who finds out what I don't know even if it is embarrassing... So why are those guides that way? It seems like that would destroy casting distance, but I remember some other company releasing FW rods like that too. I understood for saltwater where yo...

Re: Rod Balancing.... Correct me if I am wrong...

Yes, the closer the fulcrum point to the reel, the better-balanced the combo will feel. BPS used to sell a butt cap with lead weights called "The Balancer". Those were used with my first efforts of balancing rods. Im pretty sure that just the cap with no weights will balance that NRX righ...

Re: Rod Balancing.... Correct me if I am wrong...

Are the rods the same length and power? This will affect your fulcrum point. Also, the overall rear grip length will affect the balance point. The NRX has lighter guide train, though I dont care for the recoil guides myself. It might just be a couple grams of difference-but remember, the further fro...

I think that's the North Fork carbon handle, same as what's on the Black Widow rod series. They are carbon tubes and are mounted on graphite arbors. Usually, there is one at each end and 1 in the middle(2 in the middle if that handle is really long).
