Re: OG Team Daiwa Red Fuego 2000 Question

Mine is a 2000. The OD of the Drag knob is 26.01 mm as close as I can measure. Anyway just over 1 inch. Good luck on your search.

Re: Daiwa Airity LT Reel

There are some differences in the one in the article and the picture that was posted. Whether it is the same reel with just color scheme changes or not I don't know.

Re: Daiwa Airity LT Reel

I believe there is now a article on TZlure about this reel. It just showed up within the last day or so.

Hobey
That would be a great option. I didn't notice much difference between the CI4 and the Vanford.

Re: Daiwa Kage LT MQ

So consider this a "for what it is worth" comment. I have not fished the Vanford or the KageMQ but I have handled both. Things to think about, neither are made in Japan. There is a pretty good price difference. The Vanford 2500 has an "I" knob the KageMQ has a "T" knob. Both are very nice reels but ...

Re: NRX Guides

zelmo, sorry I just assumed it was a blue rod. Not sure what the green color is but don't think a small mismatch will be as noticeable with the green as it is with the blue. Glad you were able to get the guide, and yes to order just a small item like that, the shipping is often equal or more than th...

Re: NRX Guides

I believe it is a Recoil Black Pearl ''Spinning" guide #6 but to be safe I would also order a #5 Micro. If you are ordering thread also it is #413 Prowrap color fast.

Re: Skip casting reels.

If you like round reels I would try a Calcutta DC. Quite a few recommend the other DC reels for skipping. I guess if you are good, I'm not, you can skip with anything.

Re: MGL

Thanks guys, I appreciate the experiences of experienced anglers. Ii always have the feeling that some manufacturers make a minor change and hype it up. Glad to know there is a real difference.

MGL

For those who have used reels with MGL spools and the version before the MGL is there that much difference? Like, say the Alde without MGL and the current model with MGL. Is it more advertising or are we really gaining anything? I have a few older Shimanos that I would think about upgrading to the c...

Re: Plastics Challenge

Part of the problem is I work at a tackle store so I see all this cool stuff. This problem was going on before I worked there, so I don't thing I can blame it just on the store but it sure is enticing to see all the new/cool stuff. Like you I would give alot away if I thought it would get used.

Re: Plastics Challenge

I wish you the very best. I have failed miserably at this test. What I find upsetting is half the time when I bring something home I find I have the same stuff already.
