Re: Zillion TW HD

Good that you found the info of value. Have had my eye on the Morethan, but just don't need another reel.
I have the previous version of the Morethan, great reel, the new one will have more spool option.

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

The T3 1016 spool is a classic and the FX73SV spool is pretty great as well. Off topic, sorry, but: What do you use the T3 1016 spool for? I have used mine in my T3 a few times but found that it needed quite heavy and aerodynamic lures to perform well. Maybe - probably - I just have not used the sp...

Re: K2 Blank Sensitivity Compared To NRX, Conquest, Poison Adrena Level Rods

I much prefer my K2 736 custom with spiral wrapped torzites than my NRX 894 with recoils.

So.. being curious, i took the 50 Xplasma and spooled it on a Tatula CT-R, spooled up perfectly. Spooled the Catalina with 16 lb. Sunli...

Re: Opinions on best Dobyns rod for jigs

If you're staying with Dobyns, go with the Xtasy, I have the 755, works well with 3/4 and up. The tip seems a little slower, so I have to put some smoke on it for a solid hookset, but the fish stay pinned.

Re: Z bone frog rod

I use the 7-6 Hvy H3 for frogs. The Z-Bones will frog but I like them for bottom contact. The 7-6 mh Z-bone is kinda underpowered for frogs. If you're going to frog in the morning and worm later, and want 1 rod, then for sure the 7-3 hvy Z-Bone will fill the bill.

Re: Top Water rod for 1ozers

I've been throwing the I-Jack on the new Megabass Destroyer Wild Bunch Carbon Head, among other things. It handles 1 oz range top water baits very nicely. That Valkyrie 71H is an interesting option too... I know how much I enjoy the 71MH version in general. Off topic, are all the MB Valkyrie rods s...

Re: Need help locating Zillion TWS bumper

I have the old model Zillion TWS The part # for the 100XXS is 6J044505 it's key #63 plate
The part # for the 100HS and 100P are different, so that may be the color.

Is that sideplate aluminum?
Robust super metal housing
Handle side plate, mainframe, brake side set plate metallified, like a round bait.
