Sort of like when I bought $1600 roller skates for myself and $1000 skates for my teen daughter, just to spend a little extra time with her!
How many bearings do the $1600 ones have in them ?!?
2 bearings per wheel x 8 wheels. They are ceramics, btw.😜

Re: Fishing Misconceptions That You Wish Would Die

"If you are a good fisherman you shouldn't need nice gear" I have heard this one so many times and it really bugs me. I fished with a 7-foot heavy salt rod for a long time. I enjoy fishing so when I had the money I began buying nice gear. It the same as how car guys buy nice parts and golfers buy 1...

Re: Thank to someone

Someone on TT recommended changing the pinion gear on a baitcaster that stuck when trying to renegage it after a cast. I did that with a reel with that problem, and, presto, it works great now. A $5- part and now I have a fully functioning reel again. So a big thank you to whoever it was who sugges...

Hi guys,

dumb question. What screw driver do I need to open my CT SV up? :mrgreen:

Thanks!
It has Allen (cap socket) head screws inside the frame thru into the sideplate. Cant recall the exact size.

Re: Rotor swap

It's as close as I come to using expletives.....and I mean every time I do it, which has been many times. The parts will go flying due to the spring and no good way to hold the rotor in the correct position until the c-clip is re-installed, so do the swap with the spool and both hands inside a 1-gal...

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

speaking to who tried this reel....do you think it can handle hard hooksets whith 20# fluoro and a flipping stick, or frogging with 50#braid? the aluminum gears scares me a little... Our Australian members have used the Steez A to land 40# barramundi on a consistent basis with no reported gear fail...

QD Quick Drag - is it a new feature in Daiwa reels?
Wondering how it works.
Surprised it's not called hyper drag, along with all their other new hyper BS marketing.

Yeah I was going to buy an ultrasonic cleaner but then I think I would be too busy tearing down stuff to clean instead of fishing.

Re: Steez SV TW or CT version?

There are many different ways to flush bearings, I've always just soaked them overnight. I tear my reels down for a clean and lube once a year, some people aren't comfortable taking them apart but it's not that complicated. I use an ultrasonic cleaner with electronic contact cleaner. Works fantasti...

Ai havent used them, but if they are like other JDM baits, they are likely softer and have more action on the fall via US baits. Sorry Tim I was referring to the reactions innovations one.
