Re: Megabass Lin / Daiwa Ryoga 1016 Spool Options

Steez 100 spool is obviously biggest capacity spool in this range:

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

Yes it looks better in video, but still in that price tag a carbon fibre crank should be used and higher quality knobs and maybe finer drag star. :) Spool looks very good anyway!

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

Comparing 34 mm Momo spool to 30 mm Roro spool there is significant difference in casting sub 3 g weights. I believe there will be significant difference also in 28 mm vs. 30 mm in lightest fishing. It makes lightest rods more usable in stream fishing because light spool is so responsible.

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

I love BFS fishing and in case of moment of inertia of spool can be reduced, it makes BFS fishing even more enjoyable. If momentum of inertia is small, lighter rod can be used. And casting control is better because smaller amount of magnetic brake is enough to control spool. Small diameter of spool ...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

Spacers seems hard to found and those tend to be a little pricey. It would be nice if spacers would be available from reel tuning part shops.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

Wishing that they will make less expensive reel for that 28 mm spool. Pixy with spacers? Or better; Zillion Air in Steez Air frame, but aluminium.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

Obviously 30 mm ct reels were selling good, and also aftermarket spools. Daiwa has drawn conclusion that there is market for even finer finesse reel. And, sure, Karil and others will produce aftermarket spools. But I consider that this Original 28 mm Air spool will be that light that it will be chal...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

Those works similarly. Centrifugal force (against spring force) pushes inductor ring to magnetic field. Weights in V are in bigger angle than in Z, and therefore V might be better in light use.

Yes, yes! Really wishing for ct sv tw Zillion. And 70 Size Magforce Z spool. Magforce V might be good in 70 size also.

Id like to see the Steez A get brass gears. Dont care what they end up calling it. Have a 90mm handle on it too.

The Steez CT with aluminum frame and brass gears to cut costs down.
Yep! And in case of it's absolutely necessary, they can add Magforce 3D if they really want.

Re: How many rods/reels do you actually use

2 BFS rods, 2 light jigging rods (mainly for Perch), 5 seatrout rods (usually I have 2 of them with me when fishing seatrout and 2 of them is for spinning, those has been in very little use), 1 rod for common use, 2 rods are for pike. So 2+2+3+1+2=7 rods are which I use. Reels which I use are ct Alp...

Re: Light braid

Spiderwire Stealth Smooth 8 in 15# test. Its inexpensive, strong and smooth. Quiet thru the guides, too. In light use I have used recent years only Spiderwire Stealth Smooth 8, 15 lbs & 24 lbs (? converted from kilo's). In my opinion it's very good line. Zero line breaks because of line. Line break...

Re: $100.00 BFS Challenge

Thanks for very comprehensive and creditable wrote review! Obviously those Tsurinoya Dragons are faster and better casting than corresponding Kuying Tetons? (In my opinion Kuying Tetons are very nice rods but not long casting.)

Re: Bfs rod questions

I've never seen a trout casting rod with BFS labeling on it. BFS is usually reserved for bass gear. Kuying Teton SUL, UL (and L) are trout, or rainbow trout, stream fishing BFS rods. Those really are not intended for perch, walley (zander?) or pike. And because of that I can say that those are not ...
