Re: New Steez A TW HLC

I think, it's yet not sure may New Steez A TW HLC spool fit to old OG Zillions.. But if it fit, I'm interested to try OG HLC Zillion spool to Steez A TW HLC reel (if I firstly decide to buy New Steez A TW HLC). If there would be more magnetic force / adjustment area, to make OG HLC Zillion spool usa...

Re: New Steez A TW HLC

Acc. to specs this reel sounds really appealing purchase for heavy rated seatrout fishing. Or medium rating pike fishing if long casts are wanted.

(Have to think do I 'need' this more than Alphas Air.)

That’s cool. Took a few or so years, but Daiwa decided to do something about that spool in a steez A. The spool is 36 mm and it’s a magforce Z break with the boost design. The casting video they posted on IG suggests it will bomb casts.
Sounds really nice! Can you give a link to video?

Depending if the spool has ports, I will tie direct with braid.

I found myself using less braid then I used to. I mainly use FC or mono for BFS now.
I use same.If there's holes in spool, I lock braid to those for prevent slipping. With no holes I use mono for backing to lock.

Re: So how are SV BOOST spools?

Re: Alphas sv tw with some line capacity

Spool weight is truly not everything, but spool starting inertia (which is spool weight and dia and weight distribution) is everything on how light lure can be cast. If spool starts as should, then spool weight or inertia counts less, then it's more on how good spool rolls and how good casting brake...

Re: Building a new UL glassfiber rod...

Yes. This is what I'm planning. As light / soft rod for what it is possible to use in light baitcaster. Rivers here are narrow and because of that short casts are OK. But ease of casting and fun factor with fish is what I'm looking for.

Re: How to try to fix my new Tsurinoya Ares which is damaged by hook?

Thanks for advices / choises. This is solid blank and nothing can put inside. I'm not sure is surface scratch in solid blank worse than in tubular blank neither.

How to try to fix my new Tsurinoya Ares which is damaged by hook?

Hi, I have used a few times my new Tsurinoya Ares and I like a lot of it! But last time my little Rapala treble hook show that they perfectly fit around rod and because of that those marked my rod pretty perfect... Scratches are through coating and obviously a little to carbon also. Scratches.JPG I'...

Re: Have You ever seen stupid fisherman like this???

That's possible. And it seems that his worn reel was missing spool tension knob. That could be part of horrible sound of reel before explosion.

Re: Have You ever seen stupid fisherman like this???

Reel sounded horrible. And it looked heavily of used. Moreover this kind of fishing is hard.

I firstly thought he broke his rod. But hi exploded his worn reel... :lol:

Re: Short BFS rod

Yep, scale shows that Teton SUL is lighter than Tsurinoya Ares, but in fishing Ares doesn't feel heavy at all. Ares is better BFS rod in everything but only in transportation Teton is more handy.

Testing Ares:
