Re: Daiwa SV103 versus Shimano Chronarch MGL

I'm really not sure about the Chronarch mate, never fished it, the SV103 however I can vouch for it's versatility being a good quality heavy duty low pro with a finesse type spool you get the best of both worlds, replace that composite washer under the gear with carbon, flush and relube spool bearin...

Re: Reel re-assembling

I find as long as I get the nut/star below the shoulder it's all good, with shimano low profiles and tatulas there can be a bit of messing around to get the drag star to seat correctly onto the drag nut.

Re: Universal Death....

I currently have 2 stripped ones on the side plate of my 250 black sheep, I want to put a set of carbon drag washers in and it's killing me! If you are handy with a dremel, etch a tiny notch on 2 sides of the screw across from each other and use a flat head to turn it out. I've had to do this twice...

Re: 2017 Daiwa Spinning - Tatula?

What's wrong with magseal? In my experience the mag seal oil becomes thick after a year or so and affects performance, I have noticed this more prevalent in spinning reels making the feel tight. I've seen some old mag seal reels with this issue. But not used in fw...and generally only saw issues af...

Re: Steez A

Have you tried out the new Zillion SV TWS? It pretty much checks all those boxes now, though probably isn't quite as refined. DaveJ Not real keen on the Zillion TW family of reels, been sticking to OG, as you say the lighter more refine Steez is what I'm looking at. Understood. The weight of the 2 ...

Re: Steez A

I read that they still have the G1 Duralumin spool (lighter than 7075 SV), but also have the regular Magforce Z instead of the Air Brake. Should keep inductor's from sticking if people worry about that and maybe have a better longer casting (less braking) profile for performance with regular to hea...

Re: Need a large bait reel

If you want a big bait reel by Daiwa, the Lexa 300 (regular or HD) will do the job, as will the Luna or Millionaire CV-Z. True with all of the above as well as easy availability except for the CV-Z, just a little heavy is all, probably not much of a problem when your chucking 2oz baits. But the dri...

Re: Need a large bait reel

...Should also mention I like Daiwa reels too; if there's a good classic Daiwa model I should look for instead let me know! The last Ryoga 2020 I bought new, with an RCS 100mm handle and Forte Ti knobs installed for $300 tmd. The 2020h before that was NIB stock for $232.50 tmd. Bought them both win...

Re: SV103 Smoothness?

I've had t 2 6:3s with this same issue, feeling a little resistance when winding and reduced freespool, breakdown, flush and relube bearings, levelwind and ensure inductor cup and magnet track is clean and back to performing as they should.
