Re: Isn't it crazy that some Daiwa platforms are almost 20y old and still in production?

I don't want no stinkin finesse CT frame for my Zillion. [-(
I'll take a brass geared Steez A as a Zillion though. Just axe the Steez A and throw a brass main gear in it for $300 as a Zillion with better knobs already.

Re: Taming my 100m spool

If your looking for something that won't backlash even with your eyes closed then you may want to look into a Tatula SV. It should be great for night fishing.

Re: Pixy vs alphas bfs reel

There is also a Ray's spool for the Alphas. Honestly I would keep one of the two on the ML and use the new UL rod as an excuse to pick up a new reel. Maybe an ASC, Alphas CT or Alde BFS.

Re: OG zillion Revisited

The IP stock spool is no slouch when skipping. It would be my top pick for the platform. From what I understand the IP and J dream have the same spool. With the IP being a Megabass J dream. I believe the IP reels also have stronger magnets like the IS reels. My IP68 skips great but you milage may ve...

Your Fuego has the same magnets as a TD-Z so that Ito spool is still going to need a lot of thumb to control.

A Type R+ spool and HLC spring will really wake up the 100M.
Is the HLC spring stiffer than a R+?

Yes.

Re: Revo S

The Revo4 S has a full shaft on the spool. This excludes a bunch of the gen 3 Revo spools on Aliexpress. There is a Max BFS spool that may fit. You would have to see if a Black Max 3 spool will fit the Revo4 S. If it does then you can get a Momo spool for BM3 for around $30. If not then you are out...

Re: Post purple

I want one of those purple genesis Alphas for my collection someday. They can be hard to come by in mint condition.

Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

How did you fix the inductor with an HLC spring? Fixing the inductor means to affix it in the extended position. I would think an HLC spring would basically not allow the inductor to extend and the spool would under brake.

Zodias 610ML BFS with Engetsu PG and Volkey 65UL with an SS SV with fixed inductor old style Ray's spool. The Zodias and Engetsu will dump all the 20# braid off the spool on cast with 4 inch Dinger or 4 1/4 Stick-O sitting down in a kayak. This is now my go to 4 inch stickbait rig out of the kayak. ...

Ray's TD Zillion Long Cast spool? You don't mean the regular Ray's spool for TD Zillion? I wasn't aware there was also a deeper Long Cast version?
If it's the PE Special HLC version, it's on ebay for $190.

Re: Tsurinoya Pro Flex II Spinning rod

With Kuying you have a Malaysian company that makes fishing rods in China. Similar to how Majorcraft is a Japanese fishing rod company that makes their rods in China. I would definitely put Majorcraft ahead of Kuying but Kuying targets their rods to anglers that don't want to pay Majorcraft money. K...
