I beg to differ. It goes best with a 2003 Pixzilla. :big grin:

A Pixy can't be a Pixzilla without a TDZ line guide. 8-)

Re: Baitcasting Reel: Single knob handle instead of double?

Not sure how important this is but the handle on the SMAK, while having only one knob, is counterbalanced with a metal weight.

Re: Reel tuner?

D.R. is a friend of mine who I haven't talked to in a couple of years. He is a master reel tuner but I'm not sure if he is still doing the work. If he tuned the reel, rest assured it was done very well. Integrity is everything to D.R. 8-)

Re: Show us your Sol

That's a fitting reel for the sunshine state. It looks like a solar flare! :D That is a lot of Orange on that reel. Very nice. Thank you. One of my Sons is a nut about Orange so this was perfect for him. I ended up liking it so much that I am building another for me and my other righty Son to share...

Re: Pixy ZPI-301 Spool

Re: Is it Daiwa, Shimano, or someone else?

All my Pixzillas are Daiwas but there's nothing like a Conquest or a DC7 Calais.
