Re: Reel Scratches/Marks

Honestly your best bet may be to look into the cost of a side plate and transfer the internals. Assuming it’s the palm side plate. If it’s the handle side I’d be looking at a color matched nail polish and clear coat.

Is there any anti-Flip components for yaks or any yaks that simply can not be flipped ?
Just an inquiry
Only thing I can think of are outriggers but not everyone wants to deal with them every time on/off the water
The user name checks out =D> :lol:

Re: Fastest gear set for the Pixy and Alphas

The gear sets will retrofit, I’m running the 7’a in an Amber Pixy with no issues You have the Alphas SV gears? Do you remember if they're made out of aluminium or brass? They’re brass, I remember being pleased with that fact when I got them in from TTT. Very smooth and sped the reel way up.

Re: Cast Control Unlike Any Other: 13 Fishing Launches the Innovative Z SLIDE Baitcaster

How is this different from the dual braking that is found on most reels? Usually the linear mag portion is on the same side as the centrifugal. Moving it to the handle side just strikes me as a gimmick. At least it is different. This was one of my first impressions as well, in addition to getting l...

Re: TDX tdz spool compatibility.

The spool will obviously run much looser at the same settings it had before, but you should be able to compensate by simply tightening the cast control knob.

Re: TDX tdz spool compatibility.

I’ve solved this issue on other Daiwa platforms (also 34mm spools) by removing the bearing from the side plate, then taking the washers out from under it, until you reach the shims located just above the screw holding the magnetic braking unit on. Take those shims out one at a time and test for func...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Found a fish to break in my new swim bait setup. Not huge but still a solid fish for around here. Fish came on a 6” Optimum Boom Boom slow rolled through the pads. Gear used included a Daiwa Z2020 and an Abu Garcia Fantasista Beast with 20lb P Line CXX.

Re: PB largemouth

That is a fantastic fish! I’m in your neck of the woods and can attest to that being a BEAST, the frame on that fish is unreal for up here. Well done =D>

It was only 107 degrees in the Coachella Valley today. You guys in Ohio are doing just fine with the funky cooler weather! :lol: Nice fish! At least the fish are biting here at night. :evil22:
That’s 64* hotter than the projected high here, I’d settle for a happy medium :lol:

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

We’re still stuck in pre-spawn limbo here in Northern Ohio, with 20* temperature swings, but it’s kept the window to catch a big female open longer and I was able to capitalize yesterday. Biggest fish I’ve caught in a while. 22” long, 17.25” girth. Fish ate a Texas rigged Damiki Air Craw and then ki...

Re: Megabass Magdraft Freestyle Rod

If you can find one I’d look at the Destroyer Evoluzion Mephisto. It’s a 6.5 power medium fast 7’2” rod that should be pretty close to what you’re looking for. I know that didn’t help narrow it down, but it’s another option :lol:

Re: Steez sv103 spool.

Honestly if you’re trying to free the spool up I’d stay with changing the inductor spring or rotor. Both are cheaper than a new spool and are known to make SV spools quicker. There’s a thread I’ll link at the bottom that covers doing this.
