Z2020 gear set compatibility

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.

Z2020 gear set compatibility

Post by SSS » Mon Sep 13, 2021 3:38 pm

My Z2020, the tank, is finally becoming "buzzy". Is there any newer reel models from Daiwa that has a compatible gear set? The 2018 Ryoga for example? Would prefer a newer gear set because they feel much smoother under load than their older tech gear sets.

If there's nothing compatible from the newer generation of reels, what are the older reels that have a compatible set with the Z2020? I heard the silver 1016 and 2020 Ryogas? Anything else?

Only factory options and JDM and US models are not interchangeable.

Was gonna order from PLAT, so it'd be the JDM version. Does the ryoga1016 or the ryoga2020 (the older silver ryoga) has compatible main gear and pinion gear? I was kinda thinking of getting a 5 ratio set.
