Re: Isn't it crazy that some Daiwa platforms are almost 20y old and still in production?

Agree 100 percent about the watered down looks of Daiwa reels now. Mainly silver, black, grey in color. Really wish there were some limited releases of reels with neat colors like the days of old. Why not re-work that ITO green paint in somewhere? What about another white reel or yellow? They do lim...

Re: Steez Gear Mods

thanks hoohoorjoo and barramaniac, now it seems i have the only stock option :( In respect of SH version am i right that any of the TD Zillions (not only TD Z) with the same gear ratio will fit to the steez or direct swap of pinion and main gear with different gear ratio will work? does steez 6.3 s...

Re: Steez Gear Mods

why not to go with 6.3 ratio from TD Z? You can use the brass gears from an old red Fuego unfortunately i did not find parts for it on plat. what about TD Zillion PE Special? it looks like they have in stock Main Drive Gear on plat but do not have pinion. It has the same gear ratio as a steez 103HL...

Re: Steez Gear Mods

I have also managed to use original zillion gears in a Steez A but have to use the Steez A pinion, Only did it to see if it could be done as I have no issues with the durability of the new generation G1 Alloy gears and my Steez A's are used on saltwater fish.

Re: Steez Gear Mods

Not entirely sure on gears for the original 103 steez but for the Steez 100SH and the newer models and the SS SV reels the gears for the original TD zillions are a direct swap with many gear ratios to choose from. The 100 SH 7.1:1 models the gears are larger and identical to the zillion gears.

Re: Lexa 300 v. Tatula 200

Go up in price range a bit and get the Zillion HD2020, same capacity as a Z2020 or Ryoga 2020 but in a lighter frame. Alloy palming side plate and set plate instead of a zaion side plate like the Tatula. And can get it in a 5.5:1 ratio for swimbaits. its a standard magforce (fixed inductor) and work...

Stradic FL gear ratios

I have a new Stradic 2500HG FL and the gear ratio is listed as 6.0:1 , as far as I know gears should always be of a value that is not divisible by whole numbers. as with a whole number the gears will always contact the same points and create wear issues. can someone shed any light as to why the gear...

Re: Millionaire CT SV

Can you take the spacers out, change the worm shaft, and use a regular spool? Might be worth it to get one and sell those parts off to someone who wants that tiny spool... I don't believe this would be feasible as the CT reels with the spacers have also a longer pinion to reach the spool as the spo...

Re: 7.9:1 Gear

:D Do they make a 4.9:1? Those days are unfortunately over my friend... But what would I do for a 3.8:1 or 4.0:1 ratio or something along those lines into a modern day CU-K...

TD Zillion Crazy Cranker is 4.9:1 those gears will fit SS SV or into the Steez 100SH body, Not the 103H.

Re: Taking spooled reels on flights...

When I was FIFO from Townsville to Gold Coast I couldn't take spools or even electrical tape off site on carry on and that was 2009... Just last year from GC to NZ we couldn't take spools on carry on either. I do FIFO out of Townsville to Cloncurry, people at work often give me reels to service for...
