Re: Point blank 701MHF

Hi there Can anyone fishing this blank confirm the RDA weight of 525g? I‘ve just measures my rod and ended up with 630g of power. Which... irritates me.

Re: Steez SV TW bent stabilizer bar

This part is supposed to be straight right? Just noticed that mine is slightly bent out of shape. I would think I did the damage trying to break a snag free and the line made contact with it ](*,) It should be an easy fix. Just take it out and make it straight. Sounds difficult to bent it out of sh...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I believe the new Zillion is a 34 mm spool platform instead of the traditional 36 mm. This means that probably, the new Zillion 10 will be a spin-off of the Steez A and that is a good thing. The current Zillion SV is also 34mm. This new 10 looks to share more with the current Zillion SV than the St...

Re: —Daiwa Catalina TW 4.9:1–

Now these are different and why I'd like to see the Catalina or Zillion HD set plates. This is a Zillion SV, TWS, and Tatula-R. They're all interchangeable and completely different from the others. I'm not sure if there's any metal to them at all. The part that appears to rest against the frame is ...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I saw the video and actually was disappointed as when I red 2020 in the title, the idea of a Daiwa Z TW 2020H came to my mind but guess I'm asking too much and I already have 5 Zs :doh: Do you have the yellow limited edition Z2020? No, I have one Z 2020H and 4 Z 2020SH BLACK LIMITED all converted t...

Re: Zillion SV Pinion Bearings Sleeve/Collar

It is a galvanic corrosion protection. Galvanic corrosion (also called bimetallic corrosion) is an electrochemical process in which one metal corrodes preferentially when it is in electrical contact with another, in the presence of an electrolyte. A similar galvanic reaction is exploited in primary ...

The PX SPR doesn't have other compatible spools unless one changes the breaking system. [-X

Re: Differences between PX Type R and PX68

When I have both reels out side by side checking them out. I choose the type r 10 out of 10 times. It just feels better. I have the spr because its different. I would get another type r before a p68. The PX68 and the PX68 SPR are two different models. The PX68 is a Type R minus the clicking drag an...

Re: Daiwa Z: Times Have Changed

The main reason that the Z2020 was not popular with true big bait fisherman is they have often have a "go big or go home" mentality that requires more line capacity than the Z2020 has. That is why it could be found for 50% off shortly after its production run. It is a great reel, but it is just not...

Re: Daiwa magnetic brakes

Yes, unless you have everything turned up so high that you can't get any distance at all, you still have to thumb the spool. Though, every reel is different with regard to how much input is required. Especially if you're using braid with one of the faster, farther casting spools, whether it's SV, Z...
