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

Well this all makes me feel a little better about my burial instructions. I asked that I be buried with my two 301 spools, one in each hand, and it's good to know ya'll will be okay without them. :big grin:

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

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

Re: It’s 2018, why are you buying reels from the past

I have Conquests (50 mainly), Pixzillas (2003) and DC7 Calais mostly. I've been watching for something that might motivate a change but nothing has moved me in a long time. Maybe if someone would make a new orange reel.... :big grin:
