Re: Alphas/pixy spool options

Another spool to consider would be the Alpha Type R spool, my favorite Alpha spool.

Re: Megabass Black Jungle Power Versatile

I just got my PV and found it balances well with a zillion or Z200. I'm using my for swimbaits and larger topwater with the Z200. If I were to use it for bottom contact, I think I would use some variance of the zillion. I still have my PV and still one of my favorite rods. Replaced the Z200 with an...

Re: Tell me about older Diawa Alphas, TD and other reels

I am not a fan of any of the newer Daiwa reels. For the money you can’t beat the OGs. If you want to cover a wide variety of apps get yourself one from each family: 1. Pixy for BFS use with light weights 2. Alphas variant for mag finesse 3. Steez for bottom contact 4. TDZ for all around use 5. Zill...

I recently sold off a few high end reels that I just loved, but would never use them for whatever reason. However, I have always wanted to get a newer Conquest, so I figured I got the extra coin now, so why not. :lol: Its a viscous cycle. :doh:
I’m in the exact same place! :laugh1:

Re: Finally

Got my IP 68 on my PV, also. Great combo. Lower gear for moving baits and more power for frogs in heavy cover.

Re: Megabass Black Jungle Power Versatile

I love mine, use mainly from frogs. Like it for 1-3 oz moving baits and topwaters.

I think so. I had the Destroyer and the handle is short and great for jerkbaits
Topwater, too.

Yes. Even with 25# fluoro no way you will spool it with a swimbait. You can bomb cast deep into the spool but it holds plenty.
Thanks Cranky

Re: Shimano Conquest dc 201 HG

Sorry to be late on this post, but does the 200 hold enough line for large swimbaits?

Re: Which one?

Everyone should buy the 2020Met so Daiwa understands we want quality reels, not a Tatula. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Seriouly. SSS you're right. Seems like Everything Daiwa makes now is some form of a tatula. I've been a Daiwa guy for 40 years, but I would have to buy a met at this point and time.

Re: TT or TTF ... Which came first for you?

TT came first for me. Way back in the day, there was a monthly publication I used to get called Tackle Tester. I was 16 or so and with the 10.00 subscription they gave you a pretty decent package of California hand pours. It wasn't quite a magazine, it was more like a 20 ish page newsletter that ca...

Re: If You Sold all Your Fishing Equipment

I've sold a bunch of good stuff in the last few years and it hurts so bad. I really like what I have left, wouldn't change a thing right now.
