Re: Millionaire CT SV

No, I haven’t worked on the spring or ramp as I have limited experience with it. I consider using the reel for the pike and perch where lures are heavier - plus maybe having the spool less filled with line may help. SV tech can be inconsistent at times. Inductor ramp swap and stronger spring can of...

Re: Millionaire CT SV

I have made some comments on the reel in the 19 steez ct thread, which by now is 21 pages long. I do not like the reel much. Some plusses: It is good looking and pleasent to palm. It is also very smooth. I would expect this in a high end Daiwa. When (my) casting goes well, especially with 5g plus l...

Re: Millionaire CT SV

Can you take the spacers out, change the worm shaft, and use a regular spool? Might be worth it to get one and sell those parts off to someone who wants that tiny spool... I know a guy who removed the spacers from an Alphas CT 70, just to remove the orange color. The rest of your questions I have n...

I've only broken one Megabass out of about the twenty or so I've had and still currently have. It was an older generation Destroyer F1-60X, I still have it. It's now used to spool reels so all was not lost. ;)
Nice. Spooling in style 8-)

Just picked up a new 6'11" and used it this past weeknd. Very nice rod overall and appers to be very versatile. I'm hoping the blank is not too stiff for throwing 110's and pointer 100's.

Re: So who bought the ZPI Alcance?

Just shy of a full blown train wreck is what the first one was. A guide friend from Florida bought one to check out. Upon receiving the reel he notices the line guide would not travel. It was sent to me, and the pictures tell the story. Missing parts, under lubed, hot sauce grease, not even ZPI bea...

Re: SV103XS Spool Upgrades but what next

I have two. One with the dimpled SV103 Steez limited spools, the other with the dimpled Steez SV105 limited spools. I went through testing numerous spools in this reel, and this is where I landed. Aside from that, and some different parts, I don't think the reel needs anything else. Spool bearings, ...

Re: Alive Chatter?

I have a few of the 70s. I like them. Half jerkbait, half chatter bait - both work good for smallies. I use it to fish over / around rip rap and chunk rock for smallmouth. Straight retrieve with occasional rod sweeps. Let it drop when applicable, and rip it back up slowly. I haven't had much luck wi...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

Picked up a couple of the new limited g11012 7.3 zillion sv's from the asian portal. Kudos to the new tackle portal...ordered last friday and it arrived Wednesday. https://i629.photobucket.com/albums/uu15/prattly78/20190810_185818_zpsi9teup6m.jpg Is that shop pretty safe and reliable?

Re: 105 SV vs 103 SV spool

If running 22 lb test, I'm not using the 105. The two spools are almost identical in performance. You need the 103 bud.
