Got mine out today for a bit...so much power and pretty dang smooth. I see myself using this A LOT when I get to deep crank next year.

Id say it is worth the 189 dollars.

More to come
What rod are you using it on?
Custom Legend Glass. Over 9ft of cranking goodness.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

Does anyone think Daiwa will do something crazy like a TWS Alphas or Pixy?

What about a re-release of an SV103/Zillion?

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I am seeing a lot of “we get this and we get that”. Unless you are in Japan... you haven’t gotten anything yet. The Australian crowd gets something different. The USDM models haven’t even been released yet. Sure you can order from Japan. My guess is the Steez Air is a Japan release only And they ap...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

https://youtu.be/jRw_USlFJNM Yay more spiders... Well at least they didn't say if it wasn't 10:1 i would've missed the fish... Its meme-worthy to joke about, I joked about it too. I have been and have seen situations where a fast reel is the difference. Jumping out the most to me was when my buddy ...

Prices are getting ridiculous. Not crazy about the line capacity or the Daiwa logo. Sometimes disappointment is a good thing.... On the wallet.
The logo and handle makes it look about 500 dollars less

Re: SV or DC Casting Jerks/Cranks Into Wind

I like the Zillion SV for distance and control. Not as restricted as the SV103 (either type) and gets a good amount of control Thanks buddy, Zillion SV is def an option. "Restricted" is a good descriptor of what my SV103 felt like...despite that, it was a great reel. Now resting on the bottom of th...

Looks cheap. 🤷‍♂️
right? something about the handle/knob combo and the holes in the frame make it look cheap to me
Maybe Doyo or whoever made the CG reels for Daiwa did such a good job, they let THEM take the Steez line over.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

9:1? Ugh. Finesse fishing is usually about slow! Don't forget that the spool is really small. 9,1:1, that's 80cm/crank. Comparing to the Steez 1016 SV TW SH 7,1:1 75cm/crank. The 6,8:1 gear is very slow: 60cm/crank. Finessing plastics is about the rod. The speed to pick up slack line as fast as pos...

Re: SV or DC Casting Jerks/Cranks Into Wind

SV had always worked for me. A quick adjustment of the brake dial and thats all you need. You may still need to use your thumb a little, will give you a little more distance. A little thumb is fine, thanks! Are there some SV platforms more suitable for distance than others? I will probably never sk...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

it looks to be the same seat used on either the heartland or the old tds seat. is the air sensor the newer fuji pts-type seat? i'm probably going to assemble a rod this winter, and got 1 of those in. i'm pretty sure i can be happy with it from the initial feel of it. It's my understanding that the ...

Re: Shimano ftb braking adjustment

I dont remember mine having letters. I also have an Aldebaran BFS and a Scorpion BFS. The N I presume would mean north. Reel magnets generally dont have a power difference without there being a noticeable size difference (if the magnets came in the same box). The magnets will "snap" themselves into ...

I was thinking the same thing. How thin does that pinion have to be to get the gear ratio up that high?
And that thin pinion gear will in theory take 10x the abuse/wear as the main gear
