I think you should let me borrow the heritage for 6 months for the hook up :big grin:
Just saying. Nice s*it you got there!

Nice gear. Really nice.

I'm very curious as to how the ZPI and monoblock perform and if there was any mods done to make them compatible. I read on another thread that the PG isn't compatible with the CV-Z but the 001M was compatible (inductor length was the variable).

Thanks,
Andrew

Hi Andrew. Ian likes to keep things pretty close to the vest, so I didn’t ask too many questions.. but I know both the reel and the spool were machined in some fashion in order to make the spool fit and function in the reel. He put in a good bit of time to get it just right. As far as performance goes, absolutely magical. It is pretty hard to describe the balance of distance and control.. but It’s so much fun to fish. One of a kind!

You need to get the TD Z pinion shaft, it's a little longer than the stock pinion shaft and will make all TD Z platform spools work on your monoblock :)

That Personal Order is a timeless color. The SV103 color isn't too much different. They both look solid.

You have been holding out on us all along but I am glad you came to your senses!

This stuff is all epic. The rareness, the condition, the thought that went into the pairings, the color coordination, etc!

That Mr B. Fella...I tell ya he can build a rod or two like no ones business! I just may have one in the works that will look pretty similar. Great minds think alike. Only exception is mine is a BFS stick! ;)

Thanks for the kind words! Truly appreciated. And yes, he is very, very talented. Was truly amazed when I unboxed that rod.. wouldn't be surprised if I got another one in the works here soon 8-)
