Re: Tat Elite vs Zillion SV

I opened up the reel tonight and it was bone dry. I can't believe Daiwa would let a reel leave the factory with no grease on the gears. I added medium ZPI grease to the gears and it's pretty smooth. I would be hard pressed to feel the difference between it and a Steez A if I were blindfolded. Mine ...

Re: St. Croix Legend Xtreme 2020

That balance with an aldebaren is absurd I know right. I'm wondering if all the other models balance as nicely I recall Bronzefly posting a pic of the 74H with a Steez A, not sure which thread it was on though. It was a bit in front of the lock nut. I don't remember seeing it. I tried to find it in...

It’s not out yet. The 2020 172H release is scheduled for the end of April. Kazu can hook you up.
Tell Kazu that we're about to become bff's and as soon as we get some relief from this coronavirus, he's invited to my slumber party

Re: Daiwa Alphas Air TW 2020

Gear size increased...I was REALLY hoping those 8.6 gears would fit into an Alphas SV. Gears will be duraluminum too. Seems like blasphemy for an Alphas to not have brass gears but, I actually like Daiwa aluminum gears. I would say my SS AIR that I have had for years is one of the smoothest reels I...
