Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

I can understand a $50 price jump on things, but still cant wrap my head around the 100-200 dollar up charge for buying the same reel in the US vs direct from Japan. Customs and tax difference. US importer has to pay, but you may get away with it. If US customs were more strict (as in most of EU), ...

Re: Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

How fast is the Profelx 2 - is it Volkey BFS fast ?
I have considered it for trout fishing with treble hook moving baits (esp. Inline spinners), but prefer moderate-fast action for that kind of fishing...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

Sounds like I’m going to need to learn how to work on this reel and what upgrades I should look to do... It doesnt even really need bearings for the knobs. They are smooth as can be. I did it because I had bearings that needed a home. Ha. I shouldn’t have ordered bearings then. Well, the handle kno...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

I will be working on handle bearings (when I get them) but otherwise I do not find that you need to work any further on the reel. It works great as it is. All I have done is to clean bearings and apply a drop of tsi321.

Re: Karil

They have instructions on their website. It is helpful to have the instructions (in english) on one screen and then place the order on another screen.

Re: Alphas air stream custom

^ I watched your vids previously - they are great, thanks! I agree that it is an awesome reel. I seem to recall that you mention casting distance and that it is relatively meager (if I recall correctly). I find that the reel is a great distance caster with light weight lures. My only complaint is th...

Re: Ultralight casting goals...

I agree. The rod and almost overloading it is important. I am able to do some nifty precision casts and catch my share of trout. Still, that guy is on another level than I am...

Re: Ultralight casting goals...

He in an inspiration for me. Not taking anything away from him but, he does use lures that are about 1/4oz. He is still great. Using lures like an X Rap 04 and such make it harder. My favorite part of stream fishing is making sick casts like the video above. I was able to film some casts during a s...

Re: buying bearings in bulk

Thanks for the tips. I realize that on the whole Chinese bearings should generally be inferior to japanese bearings. I actually ordered abec 5 zz stainless for less than a buck a bearing. Minimal investment and I can try, if they work good I can order more. I always test all bearings for smoothness...
