Re: Spool question

I believe so.
Hopefully someone will chime in who's tried it.
A tdz spool fits with a bearing swap as well, that's what I had in my tdx.

Re: Older Daiwa 7.x ratio reels

I'm a huge fan of the old tdx reels too. Unfortunately there aren't any faster gears that'll fit that I'm aware of.

Re: Alcance (zpi) rods

Re: G Loomis Build Quality

Small things slip by qc, sure.. But obviously misaligned guides, wraps that look amateur at best, bubbles in epoxy, loose reelseats, and so on.. Those arent just small problems on a flagship product. Doesn't matter tho, they'll keep selling regardless.

Re: G Loomis Build Quality

I thought they were outsourced too. The two I had both had guides slightly off center, sloppy wraps and bubbles in the epoxy. The reel seat failed on one of them after less than a year.. The other shortly after. The blanks are awesome but the build quality and qc is just not up to par. Outsourced or...

Re: G Loomis Build Quality

Ouch. Totally unacceptable on a mid tier rod let alone top of the line. It's common unfortunately. I stopped buying Loomis a couple years back after 3 unsuccessful attempts at getting a rod without obvious flaws.

Re: Daiwa Spool Compatibility

The spool fits but the bearing is a different size.

Re: J Dream

Nice.
What gear ratio did you get?
I've got the 7:1 on a steez frog rod.
Perfect match and really bombs a frog.

Re: Megabass levante

Hope it's a bigger update than the xx series. Found that update kinda disappointing.

Re: Ultimate Drop Shot set up

Conquest rods are overrated and overpriced. I'd go with the addermine.

Re: TD-Z 103,105, stock controls swept handle

Therefore defeating the purpose of a swept handle..
We really over think these things sometimes. :lol:

Hawgtech handles fit the stock dragstar, there's a spacer that fits between the handle & star

Re: Bearings have me Perplexed

I was wondering the same thing..
If they've got a polymer cage, the acetone can react with it, melting the surface making it sticky.
That'd explain what's happening here. Otherwise.. No clue.
