Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

New project T video up: https://youtu.be/8sQeZToR8Pc Appears to just be a new... Tatula TW. ](*,) Watching the Diawa pros try to come up with praises was awkward. Came across as pretty forced & salesman-ish. In fairness, it appears to be an entry level model & they all use much better Diawa reels(es...

Re: 10.82# at Clear Lake, CA

Awesome!
For many around the world, that’s a once in a lifetime fish. The fact you got a big fish win in a tournament with it makes it that much sweeter!

Re: SV103- too smooth?

I have to agree with the OP, it doesn't have the 'connected' feel of previous Daiwas. It's got a... 'glossed over' feeling, for lack of a better term. Almost reminds me of the D7. Smooth as can be, but there's no connected feeling, moreso on the sv103. I love the reel it's rock solid & casts great, ...

Re: A NIGHT WE WILL NEVER FORGET

Good story man, made me smile big time. And good to see he caught a fish!
Maybe Santa will bring him a Daiwa SV reel for Christmas. Those SV spools are fantastic for beginners.

Re: 2019 kistler z bones in stock

I know these have been on pre order for awhile, now they're currently on the website. They have a interesting guide train. Yeah, that's a little squirrelly, especially on flagship $500+ rods. Not too bad though(assuming they're all Fuji). At least they aren't micros. Just saw the review, wow... 201...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

Just recieved mine today. Some quick notes: -Spool weighs 9.15g holds about 50yds of 4lb mono. Still has the same heavy bearing on the spool as the other air reels so weight is a bit deceiving. -Fixed induductor! Retrieve feels the same as the alphas air and alphas sv reels as its the same gears an...

Re: TackleTour Shootout : Stella FJ vs Exist LT

Surprisingly not mentioned is the drag performance/smooth drag test?

Also- Stella Max drag: 7lbs. Exist LT Max drag: 11lb.

Unless the Stella has slightly better drag performance that negates the drag ratings, I'm not sure how this can be a tie. Specswise, Daiwa has the stouter drag.
