Re: What's next for Daiwa...

I demand 3D brakes to be reintroduced into their high end reels :!: Oh man, can you imagine if they brought that to the table in the Tatula or the Zillion. In fact, lets get a Zillion Type R with the 3D Magforce system and a 1016 spool! =D> . Let's! With CF handles, cork grips, bearings everywhere,...

Re: What's next for Daiwa...

The funny thing with the Tatula is that they really did a number with the SV variant, and then went backwards IMO. Yes, the spider logo overkill is quite ridiculous. Almost as bad as Shimanos 2pc thumb bar. ](*,) and plastic levelwind systems. :doh: Yeah, I don't like the idea of a plastic worm gea...

Re: What's next for Daiwa...

I don't think they're doing it to save weight. They're doing it to save money. Maybe they'll hold up just as well, I don't know. Still can't get on board with it.

Re: Rapala’s terrible craw patterns

I've never seen a crawdad that color around here, and I think they all look pretty unrealistic, so I never buy them anyway. Love the rebel craws, though! Wish they'd make a black/blue with orange claw tips and build them a little tougher.

The tungsten worm and nail weights are a good deal.

Re: Water Absorption

The material doesn't absorb water, but the gaps in the weave carry it back to the reel.

Re: What's next for Daiwa...

I was excited when I saw so many new posts here, what a let down. Can we get this thread back on track? I'd pick up darn near any variant of the new Tatula 100 frame that doesn't have the spider logo plastered all over it. I just can't get into any of the new Tatulas because of that plastic side pl...

Re: What's next for Daiwa...

I have literally worked on reels on the kitchen table with wife fussing at me. That's ironic, and I would still trust any reel put together by me. 40 years or 4 years is enough to fix the machines we all enjoy so much. And for the democratic thing, that was strange... I am a free thinking rationali...

Re: What's next for Daiwa...

I want to see a USDM bfs reel from Daiwa, ready to go, fresh outta the box. They innovate all the time IMHO, but all these innovations are slow to make it over here, if at all. Also, as someone mentioned earlier, it would be cool if they would come out with more custom parts here. It sucks having to...

Re: OG Zillion Variations

The OG Zillion is still the benchmark for durable easy palming aluminum framed baitcast reels. The only issue is that the 36mm spool doesn't have as many aftermarket options. The Ray's Studio DIY spool has helped this platform. Buy a used standard OG and a DIY spool and you will have both heavy and...

Re: Abu Garcia Burner 10.1:1 Gear Ratio Thoughts

And this is all, uh, relevant because, uh, the Abu 10:1 is analogous to an F1 car as it's the fastest one around with an "engine" you'll be lucky to get 5 weekends out of before it explodes.

Re: Abu Garcia Burner 10.1:1 Gear Ratio Thoughts

Heck yeah. I was there at turn four (the Silverstone-esque esses) watching him fend off Lewis, forcing him to wear out his rubber. He earned that one. One of the best races I've ever seen. Raikonnen is definitely a living legend. You never know, he could work wonders in that Sauber. LeClerc certainl...
