Re: Zander's first Pixzilla (light)

Nice !

I love that handle. What’s your secret stash looking like on one of those 😂
But really it looks great. I have a pixy on my dresser that needs some love out on the water

Re: Deps Rods

Anyone have the new rod that’s spiral wrapped? It would be nice to have a model # to know about which one are we talking. I believe DEPS has at least 5 or 6 rods with spiral guides. I myself have 3 in my rod rack that use whenever adequate. I have limited knowledge Tell me what you got? I saw a fee...

Re: OG zillion Spools and behavior

The IP 79 has the same spool as the J Dream, It is going to cast lighter weights than the standard zillion spool. https://www.fishonmag.com/daiwa-zillion-j-dream/ I’m trying to cast a weightless fluke 20# test on my power versatile rod and I can with ease. I was just seeing how far it would go down...

OG zillion Spools and behavior

IP79 .485
TDZ 100M .545
Zillion PE LongCast .505

I love the PE long cast but line capacity may be an issue for you. It hasn’t been for me. I was surprised at how little the IP79 spool weighs

Re: 7’2″ F5-72XRC Racing Condition by Megabass

I have the Limited Edition one with the cranes on it. Has become my go-to moving bait rod for baits in the 3/8-1/2oz range, has just the right action to snap the bait free from grass but loads up nice so you don't pull the bait out of the mouth. The limited one came with a limited edition knuckle s...

Re: 7’2″ F5-72XRC Racing Condition by Megabass

A couple of people have it (or used to have it). I seriously inquired about this rod a couple of years ago but never found one, or never pulled the trigger if I did find one. I know for several years Aaron Martens used it (I know as his jerkbait Rod). I believe the consensus was that it was the pre...

Re: Can we talk Alpha for a second

No problem thanks for all the help. I do get confused at times and I’m not ashamed to ask for correction The looks of that 2016-2017 Alpha would be nice on a Steez bottom contact rod. At one time I thought I wanted an air stream custom but after much reading on here I found it to be a great reel jus...

Alpha air tws and the previous model without tws and has the red spool ( I think it was an sv spool? )/ are the spools compatible? Do you mean previous model Air: Daiwa 16 Alphas Air, Japan model 2016-2017 https://japantackle.com/reel-archives/casting-reel-archives/discontinued-models/daiwa-16-alph...

Alphas Air TW spool is 28mm. I'm guessing you're talking Alphas CT as the previous model? That's a 30mm spool.
Thanks man.
That was fast!
