Re: Did I choose the correct size for my new Daiwa Exist LT FC?

I believe that model is using 1000/2000 size body(which is the same) with 2500 size spool and rotor so it is not a technically 2500 sized reel. You should have better line management with bigger spool and maybe more casting distance. This is another reason I got Daiwa Ballistic FW 2500S-C over 1000...

Re: Will the real 4# please stand up

The problem is they don’t normally advertise line diameter or false advertising look at Yoziri top notch 12lb .285mm compare time same 12lb .285mm Seaguar Abazx, Yozuri is a lot bigger.

Re: Hello and new to the forum

Nice man. I also love ultralight fishing using both spinning and baitcaster (about 8 setups). It is much more fun to catch huge slab or big bluegill with spinning (I felt baitcaster is overpower). My main setup is Speedstyle S632UL with Ballistic FW 2500S-C (6lb Finns braid or Tatula LT 2000 6lb nan...

Re: Ever Been Spooled?

Just almost when I only had about 50yds of 8lb braid. I was fishing for crappie with 1.5 gram jig head and something big grabbed the lure. He swim off in open water non stop. I can reel in occasionally but he would pull out a few feet more again. At that time, I haven’t upgrade my pixy drag so my ro...

Re: Need help Abu Garcia Revo ALX magnet.

Not really, I can cast 1/16oz jig with crappie plastic just fine. I haven’t try anything lower.

Re: Abu garcia REVO LTX-BF8

Can anyone of you tell me if the spool fit loose or tight onto shaft pin? My AMO spool shaft is smaller than original spool (ALX). I have to put harder to install spool and hard to take it off after it seated.

Re: Need help Abu Garcia Revo ALX magnet.

Thanks - The AMO 32mm looks like the one... Have you got the AMO spool? I think mine is kind of defective. The hole on AMO spool shaft is smaller than original spool. It is tight fit and make it super hard to remove spool once inserted. I’m not sure how free floating spool design of Abu Garcia work...

Can I ask you what shallow spool you ordered for the ALX?
Thanks
AMO 32mm spool. Or I believe you can use original shallow spool for LTX, LT7
This one might also work

You can add another bearing to make Shimano knob work on Daiwa handle (total 3 bearing instead of 2)

Daiwa Tatula 1000 LT

I’m in the market for new spinning reel. I look hard on Daiwa Tatula LT since I like it a lot more than Stradic ci4. I have ci4 2500F for bass, Daiwa legalis LT 1000 and Sahara 750 for panfish. I’m going to buy Tatula LT 2000 since this reel will be use for both bass and crappie but I found a deal o...

Re: Casting Drop Shot Setups, What You Got ??

Before this year, I used my all time favorite Shimano Crucial gen 2 6’11 dropshot specific rod pair with either Curado 70 or Alphas SV weight down from 1/8 and 3/16 oz line #6 or # 8 hybrid. I lost the rod and I haven’t fish dropshot at all this year. I don’t see why you can’t use your CQ 51 for dro...

Re: Ned Rig CASTING only

You should really try your stock spool pixy airy red, the only thing I would upgrade is carbon fiber smooth drag.
