Wording on a TD-Z

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Wording on a TD-Z

Post by Moosehead » Tue Sep 04, 2018 11:40 am

I don't have mine in front of me but a friend just asked me if the side plate lettering on a TD-Z was a sticker or painted on with a stamp or something, I was under the impression it was painted on but truth be know I really don't know... can anybody shed some light on this..?

Yeah stencil it’s to clean and crisp to not be . It’s a template they paint over

There's a company here that makes high def stickers think I'll give him a try. Thinking about painting a couple of beaters but don't want to lose the lettering...

It's actually a waterslide decal. Those can be DIY, too.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.
