Re: Alphas air stream custom

Hm, the spool costs more than the handle.

Carbontex for Zonda

This might be a stupid question, but it's the same set as the older alphas/sol, right? Baitcaster #1?

Re: Daiwa Alpha 5.8 gears?

What about the alphas sv 5.8's? I'm waiting on a set for my ASC. I kinda hope they are aluminum just to make it even lighter. I'll check tonight. I need to service my SV105, anyway. If not, I have a set of duralumin gears from an Alphas Type F that I might part with. Dang it I meant Alpha Air 5.8 a...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Well Its up on the website http://www.daiwa.com/us/contents/reels/steezctsv/index.html Same color, weird. Anyone notice the Steez SV TW is not listed on the website? Still on the Japan website but seems to have disappeared from the US one. :doh: Well, at least the Megaforce twitchin' bar reel is st...

I noticed they have have the same IPT listed for both ratios. That's nothing new for Daiwa USA, though.

Re: Alphas air stream custom Handle needed

I just bent the hell out of my air stream carbon handle. Any chance that anyone has the parts list from the owners manual and can get me a part number for the whole handle that includes the knobs ? Thanks, Eric Ledger E73bass@aol.com (easier to reply to this email as I am not on TT as much anymore)...

Those are brass gears.


Well, that's cool too. Considering what that reel is for those will last much longer than I will.

Re: Who is using BFS casting gear for trout/panfish

. Unfortunately, it seems that every BFS rod is made in China, even the very expensive Japanese rods. I guess it makes sense making the rod blank and components in Japan and shipping all the stuff to China for assembly, shipping the rods back to Japan for quality control, but that may be why I'm no...

Re: Spinnerbait rod ?’s

It's all relative as far as action and power go, but i would think that rod would be ideal. Are you tossing big colorados and feel that rod is underpowered? For typical willow/willow willow/colorado spinnerbaits and 3/8th chatterbaits you should have plenty of power in what I think of as MH/F. You m...

Re: Am I stupid to buy a Steez A and swap the spool with my new Morethan?

I'm just thinking from the lip of the spool down to the arbor. 4mm sounds like a big difference whereas 2mm doesn't so much. Got it. Thought you might have been doing some sort or radius measurement or something. It really surprised me when I took the measurements how different they are. That's kin...

Re: Am I stupid to buy a Steez A and swap the spool with my new Morethan?

Well, 2mm anyway. 21.8-17.3=4.5mm Just wondering where you got the 2mm. Not sure if my math is off somewhere. I’m not sure on the formula for measuring a reel. Thanks :lol: I think you are just taking all of these pics to show your new rods in the background... :shock: :lol: And that awesome bloody...
