Re: 2021 Shimano Reels

Speaking on micro modules going bad... everyone got me worried about my Chronarch MGL and I started noticing the "buzz". It does have a sound to it, but honestly it gets the job done fine. I'm not sure about Metanium aluminum micros though, heard mixed reviews concerning them. Do the Bantams hold up...

I think handles under 90mm look deformed.

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

I remember a local ATV dealer advertised Yamaha Raptors would go 100mph. Local dealers aren't always the best sources, in your case I hope so, brass gears and $50 off would be nice, would be a very odd business model though. I assume it will be $399 and the same thing, or at best $349.

Re: New Alphas SV Tw

Pretty sure the frame is the same, other than the zero adjuster and the brake dial design being different. Don't remember line capacity, but go to a JDM site and it should tell you from there. I think this is an all purpose reel that HEAVILY favors finesse work...

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

Be very odd to have one version made in Thailand and another made in Japan, especially at the higher price point you wouldn't expect the same high unit sales... but they have had Japan made Ballistics I think when the majority are made in China.

Re: Steez A deep cranks?

Slightly unrelated, but my JDM XH version has plenty of power. Never fished huge cranks with it, but it feels very strong while fighting a fish and with lighter resistance baits. I feel like 5 speed reels will eventually phase out, 6 speed area (mid 20's IPT) has plenty of torque with newer technolo...

Re: Your most versatile rod?

I don't have the best rods, so I would say the 7'M fast Villain 2.0. A Steez A w/ Zillion SV spool casts anything and the rod still works for jerkbaits when necessary... Abu rods feel similar to my Medium powered fast action St. Croix Avid X...

Re: So how are SV BOOST spools?

What makes his analysis wrong or deserving of the copycat label? Just to clarify, the powers that be here on TT coded it so every time anyone types out the name of that youtube channel, it automatically converts it to "copycat site." As it was explained to me in previous posts, since TT originated ...

Re: So how are SV BOOST spools?

How is copycat site a copycat? Maybe he just worded the post wrong. copycat site is a big help and without doubt the best on YouTube for breaking down reels. The other channel I know of weighs spools and gives good info but threatened to block me over talking theology in the comments. I still smiled...

Re: Will The Current Zillion Be Discounted?

Without a doubt they will eventually, I wonder what happens to all of these old reels that don't sell... I assume their are TONS of the Zillion TWS out there too still that have never even been opened. Also I saw some prices on ebay, one was a Zillion SV TW with NO SPOOL and NO HANDLE, tons of scrat...

Re: Alphas sv tw with some line capacity

So does anyone know the weight of the new Alphas SV TW? I don't remember the weight of my old SV105 spool either... I've got the SV105 spool at 13.4 grams with bearing. Nice, we need a locked thread for all Daiwa/Shimano spools weights, any other brand is welcome too, just seems that is what we hun...

Re: So how are SV BOOST spools?

Yeah I hope the SV Boost spools are compatible too. I assume they are; inductors don't look much different or move much differently... which SV Boost reel are you using?

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

I have always liked the little metal/aluminum colored lock plate better than the plastic. Wonder if you could replace it how with an older style? A gunmetal or silver color would look great with the new sleeker metallic Zillion and Alphas look.
