Re: Question for Catalina TW owners

How does the Catalina TW compare to the Zillion TWS in terms of braking profile and smoothness? I'm in the market for one of these reels. The inductor spring on the Catalina TW is stiffer and has a faster profile. I believe it was developed for braid. The Zillion 1516 is more of an all around spool...

Re: Question for Catalina TW owners

It won't fit. There is a cutout on the frame for the release switch. Here is a picture comparing the Catalina TW and Zillion 1516

Picked up a 2500 XH for my NRX 852S. Very pleased with it.

SV103 Spool Tuning

Finally got around to install the Ray's inductor into my SV103 spools. The Ray's inductor is tapered and noticeably thinner and lighter (almost 1g lighter). The length is still the same. While I had the inductor apart I added a Type R+ spring as well. These two additions really wake up the reel. I o...

Re: Tdz spool in a SS sv

Took my calipers and SV spools and did some measurements. Length is measured from the edge of the spool to the end of the rotor by eyeballing. Not the most accurate but gives you an idea how much it sticks out. I have a of few Ray's DIY rotor kits but not installed so I couldn't get a length. Spool-...

Re: 17 Scorpion DC Gears

There should be no noise or vibration. This is probably because the gear alignment isn't perfect since they were not really made for that reel. There is a difference between the 70 size reel and the 200. If they are working and you can live with it, fish on. Thanks for the follow up. For now I beli...

Re: 17 Scorpion DC Gears

That's what I figured but I searched and haven't heard of anyone swapping 8.2 XG gears into their CU 200i. My original plan was to make this my topwater reel with 8.2 gears. I think going with the 7.2 gears will make it more versatile (cheaper too!) for lipless and shallow cranking as well as topwat...

Re: 17 Scorpion DC Gears

Bantam1,

Just wanted to confirm if the 71 XG gears will also work before I place an order. You only previous mentioned 200I gears.

Thanks

Re: ICAST 2019

The Coastal SV is interesting. Daiwa has always used the SV spool with smaller capacity spools. Nothing larger than 103 (14lb/100m) capacity that I know of. This is like Curado 200 (20lb/100m) capacity with an SV spool. Very interested on how it casts.

Re: ICAST 2019

Too bad it has a fixed inductor. I would love to see a more distance orientated Magforce Z spool in it for bombing frogs and throwing big baits. I know the JDM Zillion HD has a fixed rotor. The Daiwa USA website does list Magforce Z though. So maybe it's using the Ryoga 1520 spool? http://www.daiwa...

Re: Daiwa Coastal/Tatula HD 34mm spool options

The Daiwa Coastal TWS is a 36mm spool so none of the regular Tatula 34mm spools will work, including the HLC. Your best bet is the spool from the JDM Tatula 153. Its shallower and has Mag Z.
