Re: New vs old greats for cranking.

I love my OG Zillion C.C. for fishing deep cranks.

Re: Curado K vs Bantam

Just received a new Bantam today. This is the most comfortable Shimano I have ever held. The reel is silky smooth. I feel like a total idiot for not buying one when they first came out. I haven't casted it yet but I have a feeling I will be buying more. Welcome to the party! :mrgreen: You can bet I...

Pretty sure this is a Daiwa Japan only reel.

Daiwa USA version will be coming later.
The Zillion 10 is on Daiwa US website.

Probably out later in 2020.
The spool looks like the one on the Scorpion DC. I would assume this is a JDM only reel.

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

I want that palm plate, but I need it in the color of the original Zillion TW SV. The protruding mag dial is it's only real wart that can't be easily remedied. I sanded the teeth on the mag dial and the ridge below it some but it didn't help enough. Sun gloves help a little but I don't want to wear...

The Reel Test on YouTube uncovered a couple shots of a new casting reel. It looks like it has a Core Solid Body.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I'd really like to hear what the haters actually want out of daiwa ? :-k It seems we have some keyboard commando engineers among us... The main thing I ask is for Daiwa to ditch the protruding mag dial. Use the Steez CT style palm plate on all there reels. I care about comfort a lot more than looks...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I've palmed the Tatula 100 at my local BPS and it actually palms really good. I hear they are Steez TW SV size but I don't have one so it is more like an Alphas to me. I have held one in the store and it's more Alphas-like then Steez TW SV-like, which is good imho. I was thinking about picking one ...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I noticed the Tatula SV's that the US pro's are casting have the chrome handle nut covers like the regular Tatulas 100's. Probably have a 90mm handle where as the JDM version is 84mm.
