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.

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...

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.

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.

Re: Daiwa SV103 Ratio

I'm an Aussie Barra fisherman so I could be barking up the wrong tree but if you're looking for a reel to bulldog fish out of heavy cover then stick with the 6.3 so the only disadvantage I can think of is reduced amount of lowdown torque when cranking hard against heavier weights. I had the og zilli...

Re: Daiwa SV 105 vs SV 103

I have both reels being the sv105hs and sv103 6.3 and I would say they they do 2 different tasks for me, the 105 I use for throwing smaller baits (1/4 to 1/2 oz) in open water situations while the 103 is more of a knock em down drag em out type reel casting and trolling (1/4 to 3/4 oz) around heavy ...

Re: drag grease

The combination I use is cals biscuit coloured grease on drag and gears, corrosion x standard on the slow bearings (including Tha AR bearing) and tg's rocket fuel tournament on the spool bearings, I do however fish saltwater tropical and find this combo gives me the best performance and protection. ...

Re: Are older MB rods worth it nowdays?

I would say yes mate, I haven't had that particular model but I do have a Jabberwock F468x and love it as much as my Orochi x and xx rods, they've always been quality! I also had and Orochi "Emilia" 68 that I regret selling! Beautiful rod.

Re: St Croix LEC68MF Guide measurements

Wow thanks for the info mate, I actually didn't realise that they measured the outside when sizing guides :shock: I do now :D , turns out they are way too small for my needs, I guess I'll keep searching or get one custom made with recoils and sics, thanks again Timinmo.

Re: St Croix LEC68MF Guide measurements

That would be fantastic mate, not many high end rods around with the traditional cork foregrip arrangement and would love it to suit my needs. Cheers
