Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Got a chance to use it twice over the past ten days or so as open water is coming to an end by me. I just want to say this reel is one bad mf'er \:D/

Re: Protecting reels from scratches

Check out "wanees.jp" on Instagram. Some interesting designs on protective decals that are made for reels. There was some chatter on them awhile back in another thread on here. I don't believe they ship to the U.S., at least they didn't back when I began following their IG page.

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Ended up ordering from Digitaka. Was out of town when it arrived but picked it up from the post office this evening. Threw on the gold ZPI parts, as expected not a perfect match but not too bad. Added a handle locking plate from a Steez SV TW SH and some cork knobs. Reel feels smooth and solid, unfo...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Anyone care to share any input regarding issues using fluorocarbon on a reel with a high speed levelwind? I know I've read some chatter in the past regarding the issue but I can't imagine a negative impact regarding the lines durability. A complaint I saw was the friction of the line rubbing on its...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Anyone care to share any thoughts regarding possible cons of the XH model after some time using the reel? About to pull the trigger in a day or two and slap a PG spool in it for jigs. 99% sure I'll be going this route over a Steez A XH or SV TW XH. I’ve had mine for a good amount of time now. I’ve ...

Btw, I heard there will be 3-4 more rods released in the adrena lineup in the spring.
Figured this may be the case with how well the current models offered are selling. Great news!

Re: NRC001-M

I use braid on a M spool. Fits more than enough 30lb 832. Throw topwaters a lot with it. Lipless in the spring. Have used it for up to 1/2oz chatterbaits with no issues in a pinch. I should note I was not fishing heavy grass. I've used it to fish the chatterbaits around docks and light weeds at nigh...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Finally tried out the PG hyper approach today at a little lake. Had to take a picture of this beast.

Re: Poison adrena 2018?

Agreed, the new handle does get pretty slick. I had an instance in January jerkbait fishing where my hands were wet and a pike smoked my jerkbait on the pause and ran. Almost ripped the rod out of my hands even with loose drag. Now I make a mental note to dry my grip hand and/or the rod handle anyti...
