Re: Next Daiwa Reel help!!

The Zillion made everyone forget what are the Shimano offerings. Get that thing. For once in a long while, Daiwa has created a quality reel that will be remembered for a long time.

Re: Megabass Triza Travel Rods ( Help me pick 3)

Finally was able to use the Stympalides. Amazing rod. I originally thought that they were tip heavy, but on the water, they felt damn great. Water is like 43F, so only cought a few pike, but the flex (on case and on a fish at the end of your line), sensitivity and balance were way better than i even...

Re: My SV Boost reels, so far...

Have not tried them, but i hope they aren't as disappointing (for distance casting) as all the standard SV spools are. I own 17 Tatula SV, 20 Tatula SV, 16 Zillion SV TW, 16 Steez SV TW to name a few SV reels and they are all proficient in terms of casting distance. The shortest casting of them all...

Re: 13 Fishing Defy Black Crankbait Casting Rod 7'4" update

Aliexpress rods are better than 13fishing offerings. Interesting. Could you share which models you fished and specifically (weight, balance, power, sensitivity,...) you found to be so bad? Also if you could add what brands you feel are far superior in the afore mentioned attributes at a similar pri...

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

... On a side note, does anyone knows if the new zillion is able to support 2 bearings on the worm gear? When fully upgraded with BB, can it get to 12 like the steez tw or does it max out at 11 like most daiwa reels? Yes, it does support two bearings on the worm gear. I have made that upgrade on bo...

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

Don't think i ever got any confirmations on this. Has anyone tried to use the Zillion1000 gear set inside their steez tw? I really want to try these gears in a steez this coming season. The Alphas SV TW, newest Zillion and Steez CT all share the same gear set size. Not sure on the Steez SV TW. Ah t...

Re: Smaller reel for braid with Glide Baits

The fuego issue is most likely from the metal star (clutch wheel i believe its called) that resets your thumb bar on handle retrieve. Happened to me on a few used reels i bought over the years. Easy replacement for $10. As for a new reel that isn't too large, i could never not suggest the Z2020 enou...

Re: Megabass Triza Travel Rods ( Help me pick 3)

Not the highest end 2-4pc rod i've got, but it feels like some premium quality MB rods. May I know which is the best travel rod/blank you have tried so far? I tried a few lately. The best might be the 5pc Poison Glorious, so damn expensive too. The Excense MB is also impressive, more affordable. Ho...

Re: Zpi Zelos

If they're making another reel, this means the Alcance sold :roll: I don't get why would anybody bother with these when shimano/daiwa are a thing. Expensive Chinese reels with a ZPI logo on it doesn't make me want to get one. Hell, i don't even want to try one.
