Re: Daiwa T3 SV 8.1 gear sets?

I’ve never had the t3 Sv but I’ve swapped the 8.1 USDM ballistic gears into a few jdm t3 1016s and t3 mx. The 1016s required me to remove the pinion gear spacers but once done they fit perfectly.

Re: Calcutta 50XT BFS Spool

Wow, I just looked at ebay and that's insane! I bought one of the avail spools back when they were still able to be had new for around 80 bucks, and I sold the complete reel with spool for around $160-170 a couple years later. Upgrading the bearings on the stock spool helped my casting capabilities ...

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

To those who had a chance to fish this reel for some time now, what's you overall opinion, is it worth it? I'm looking to add another CT reel to my collection (have steez CT) but looking for something cheeper. Reel will be mainly used for throwing 1/8 to 3/8 baits. Thanks I still have 2 alphas ct's...

Re: New 2020 Shimano Metanium

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUZZtg45pI0 Is it just me or does the 100 sized conquest look bigger than a regular 100 sized conquest? I've noticed that Japanese tend to have small hands, so I think that's why all the reels look large in the videos. Even the Curado 70 looked huge in those Japanese...

Re: Ss sv spool options

I’ve run the zpi M spool in the ss Sv. Right on the ragged edge of blowing up on every full cast with the brakes on max. If I had the wind to my back is was great but a slight shift and I was picking a bird’s nest.

Re: Alphas sv105 vs Alphas ct sv

The ct spool is faster than the sv105, and I also get a touch more distance with the ct as well. The biggest advantage you will notice with the ct over the sv105 is short range pitching and accuracy. The ct startup is so quick that you get ultra flat trajectory on pitches and short range casts. Once...

Re: New 2020 Shimano Metanium

44,100JPY is the same MSRP as the current Met MGL. If the Japanese tackle shops do a similar price markdown as the current ones (selling around 33000 yen) they could be had for just a little over $300 Why would they do that for a reel that literally just came out? The current Met MGL has been out f...
