Re: Dream baitcaster

Always wanted a sub 6.5oz full bare titanium low profile baitcaster with some nice engraving on it. But who am i kidding, these will never be a thing.

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

If i had the choice between a JDM model with aluminum gears, Made in Japan and $50 more expensive (in reality, you will be able to find it for much cheaper in used like-new condition) or a USDM version with brass gears and made in Thailand, i wouldn't even consider the USDM one. Have seen enough Tha...

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

Just learned that both side plates are aluminium and weights only 6.3oz. That's pretty darn good. I can tell this reel was created to compete with 2020Met and Bantam, since these two are crushing it.

Remember the Daiwa's "connected feel"?

Remember the well known "connected feel" when talking about older Daiwa reels, most of which were using aluminium gears? That is gone. Now, the higher end reels feel like ice, you don't feel anything at all when under load (which is a very good thing). I think that back then, Daiwa reels were simply...

Re: So how are SV BOOST spools?

Any difference in Zillion Boost and Steez Boost spools? I may ( actually, I will) get one for my Megabass FX68 with 3D Magforce brake System. Should outcast new Zillion. It might out cast the new Zillion but, it wont have Hyper Digigear, Hyper Clutch and all the other Hyper features. As we‘ve seen ...

Re: Steez ltd sv tw

It really is funny how they didn't even bother giving you a nice carbon handle for that price.

I was laughing at Shimano for naming every part of their reel as a feature, but now Daiwa does it as well. I would expect a noname chinese reel to do something of the sort, not Daiwa.

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 smile...

So how are SV BOOST spools?

Just saw this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXNuUk7-N1E and it seems like its not overbraking like the standard SV spool?
