Re: Alphas finesse spools

This is a DIY Ray's Studio Spool, 1016 size for the Zillion SV TW, etc. The picture shows the bearing still on, haven't used it yet though. I figure the Alphas diameter being smaller makes it slightly less than this...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

This won't last. Supply and demand makes this go up I know, but I don't see people picking up more and more with the prices increasing. Fishing is my one hobby, I don't make enough to have a huge nice boat, depth finder, etc., but I do get enough to enjoy a few premium products. This increase would ...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

I saw the pictures that prove the gear isn't aluminum, scrolled down from the provided link and read the comparison of Steez A versus Morethan PE SV TW and he included pictures of both. What are the benefits of bronze versus brass? It looked from the pictures that both reels had a clicking drag. Thi...

Re: Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

Yes, I’m using 1.5PE (15# J-braid grand). I have caughrt about 15 bass between 1.5#-4# (4.18/4.2) over the past couple of days trying out these BFS rods. I have used my PIXY68R, Core50, SOL, Tatula 100 (DIY) spool. Tough little rods. https://www.flickr.com/photos/167662172@N02/shares/1eywy4 Those a...

Re: What's next for Shimano???

I would really like too see a Curado 70 with a mgl spool and a 96 mm handle. This is my hopes too, only thing is I figure a full size Curado K MGL will be coming due to the Scorpion MGL pictures. The 70 is such a small comfortable platform though, and could benefit from a 2019 revamp greatly. Some ...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

You do know that if the price of ..... ah... gas that your local station sells, that is the price they have to buy it for, goes up. They don't wait until they have sold all the old gas they had previously to raise the price. They raise the price. That is the way it works for milk at the grocery or ...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Pretty much sums it up concerning what the pro's will say. I just cannot believe a smaller spool and ergonomics would justify an even MORE premium price. No way that reel is selling for $700 US. Unless I am in for a rude awakening and our economy is about to dump along with the value of the dollar. ...

Re: Ester or PE Braid?

I really enjoy the Sunline BMS in 10lb for shaky heads/semi finesse, and the 14lb Green Invisible Sunline for general purpose. Still cannot decide what to go with for my first BFS setups here though. Narrowed down to either 8lb Sufix or 4.5lb Sunline BMS/Invisible. Not sure that fluorocarbon adds m...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Word is, US price on the Steez CT SV 70 will be 699 bucks. No thanks. 472 bucks on Digitaka That's embarrassing. The market for nice reels is awful here. I have facebook advertised to fix reels a few times and end up doing it for free most of the time. Feel bad charging someone anything when the pr...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

If you are ordering "new" reels as opposed to ones you already have in stock the price has increased. I would expect we will all see an increase in the price of the Steez, both current models. At this point the Steez CT is an addition not a replacement, or that is what it appears to me. O...

Re: Aldebaran MGL

I'm not sure when this reel was released, but I'm assuming it was sometime during 2018. Anyway, I just returned from the Sacramento ISE sport show. I asked the Shimano rep if he had a Aldebaran MGL that I could look at. He handed me a Aldbaran, but it didn't say MGL. He said it was the most recent ...

Re: Lost fish therapy

Don't get many bites where I fish so it really hurts to lose a big one. One of the many reasons I quit smoking. Got bored one day (smoking) not paying attention, hooked a big one on a Keitech FB jig, drag was probably +75% and I didn't know it. Fought a potential personal best to the boat, even let ...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Yep, same price as Steez Sv Tw........looks like tacklewarehouse increased prices of steez sv and steez a by $50 so CT could be around $550 when it comes here What in the ??????????????? Why and how did they do this? See...

Re: Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

I received my Proflex yesterday. I ordered on 1/8/19 so the shipping wasn't bad at all. My only complaint with the transaction is that tracking info would come in spurts (I guess its better than no tracking ;) ), I would get four or five updates all at the same time. One thing that surprised me tho...
