And what's that dark grey/black 2 tone reel he's holding in the photo with a blue shirt? Body shaped like a core but in the video you can clearly see the top/hood is darker

In this video is possibly that new met.

Here's that silver reel with the black hood? At end of video there's a better shot, looks more silver/white.

Re: Shimano ICAST 2018

Looked like in one of the last TW videos with Luke Clausen he had what looked like a metainium with a black hood... This video? https://youtu.be/YZEz0TLt_lg You can definitely see a white reel with black hood on his deck. What I'm wondering is what reel is that he's using? Close up at 5:35- he's sh...

Re: Micro Module Gear Core MG8 SVS infinity

I think that's pretty much what the bantam is, no? I think shimano seems to be going in a different direction with more squared off, angular design vs the rounded lo profile bodies of the past. Would make a cool reel though, loved that body. Unfortunately I don't know how well it would sell. As rods...

Re: What do you daiwa guys use to bomb lures?

Probably my OG zillions with hedgehog zr bearings & IZE hlc spools. My OG HLC Zillion needs some tlc (sticking magnets), but I'd imagine with upgraded bearings and supertuned, running the stock spool, would probably be the champ. I'd think one of the 1516 tw zillions, or even a t3 with the mag 3D br...

Re: Moving to Texas

Can't speak about proximity to lakes, but I recently went to Austin for the first time. I feel in love hard with that city, I would move there in a heartbeat!
That city is the sh*t, I can see why it just got ranked the number one city in America to live in.

Re: Single barbless hook - front or back?

I'd go with the back. I only fish one treble on the back of a lot of my small crankbaits & poppers. If it's a jerbait, I'd experiment in a pool or something to see how the balance is effected & which placement is best. Could experiment with stick on weights(if you're an obsessed fisherman and it mat...

Re: Steez RC vs Poison Ultima

Thanks Gents for the replies on PU. Unfortunately, those replies turned a monkey into a gorilla. I found a seller that has a 172h new in Japan well above an already healthy msrp. But could I wait possibly a full production cycle? I'm a slow, patient, dissect the sh$@ out of a spot fisherman. But, s...

Re: Cranking It Up with Spro's John Crew's Fat John 60

Always liked the look & design of the crews crankbaits, spent a decent amount of time throwing them- but for whatever reason they never produced well for me. Similar experience with the imma shaker(which the shallow crews kind of reminded me of). They look like they should be good fish catchers but ...

Re: Good allround spool for T3 MX?

The 1016 G1 SV spool has been so good in my SS/SV (and obviously in stock Zillion SV TW's) that I plan on ordering a second one just because. Would like to keep a backup with 30lb braid on it to compliment the current setup of 14lb fluorocarbon. Man.. you really like talking about that ss/sv :lol: ...

Re: Frankensteining the SV103...

The magnets are not the issue with reel feeling over braked. It’s the inductor on the stock spool. That’s why I’ve been running the Zillion SV spool. It opens the 103 up emmensley. I concur. Much easier to find a spool with the appropriate sized inductor. More than plenty of spools readily availabl...

Re: Frankensteining the SV103...

Rain let up so I got a chance to do some yard casting. Good news: it casts great! Bad news: there's a substantial spool/frame gap on the palm side of the frame, that the stock sv103 brake housing lip filled, zillion doesn't. You can see in this pic the protruding lip of the stock sv103 playe(in the ...

Re: Frankensteining the SV103...

*Side note- the sv103 plate didn't seem to want to swing into place on the zillion. Perhaps it'll fit with some fidgeting but I didn't want to force it.
(Not that it matters as the goal was to fit the zillion brakes on the sv103, not the other way around. Just putting it out there fyi)
