Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

^^^ Thanks, I've always liked the dark gray ones a little better than the silver and pale gold-colored ones.

Re: Scorpion MGL

Has anyone used it a decent amount so far? I am looking for a reel for my Expride 7M glass, and this is the front runner. My only real concern is the smaller handle on the 6.2:1, my choice for reaction baits. The Curado K has a bigger handle, but for me it lacks the "It" factor. Buy a 96mm Met hand...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

Here's a TD-S that I recently acquired from another member here (got it for spinnerbaits). I updated it a little bit. TD-Z spool, swept Zaion drag star and 100mm handle with new Steez knobs. I added a couple bearings inside, also. I know it's not the latest and greatest, but it performed flawlessly ...

Re: Daiwa TD Sol Reel handle ?

There are many straight handles from previous models that will work. Any straight (complete) handle on that auction site would work, as well.

Re: Daiwa Drag Star Swaps

I have one on an older TD-S. No-go on the Alphas, but will work on a Zillion and an SS SV.

Re: Opinions, new spool SV105

Sol and Alphas are basically the same reel. The spool performance is identical. Spools have slightly different sporting, but are pretty much the same.

Re: ML Fast/Xfast recommendations

I might have to try my Steez on that rod. They look great together!

Re: Help with my Sol

If you're trying to cast lures around 1/4 oz and up, the SV105 will do just fine and should go on the mlr rod. If you're shooting for say, a #5 shad rap, the Sol with the honeycomb is a better choice, especially if it has the stock 5.8 gears. Those reels really should do fine with any of the 3 rods ...

Re: Favorite EWG Flipping Hook

I use the 7/0 Trokar Big Nasty with the 4.5" Yum Christie Critter and other larger thick body baits like Zoom Mag lizards. I feel like a wide gap hook of the same size doesn't hook up as well as a standard offset worm hook, so I upsize when using wide gap hooks.

Re: Opinions, new spool SV105

It's virtually the same performance as in the Sol/Alphas. A great compromise of distance and control, and better distance than the SV spool with anything 1/4 oz or more. I had an Alphas spool in one of my SV105's(rod was an Adrena 6-10M), and it was my dedicated spinnerbait/squarebill combo.

Re: Taming my 100m spool

Ditto, the 100M spool is among the most controlled spools I've ever used, no thumb at all until splashdown. I'll say to check the inner and outer magnet rings. At the highest setting, the grooves across the magnets should line up, and they should separate as you back off the mag dial. If that's not ...

I can throw 2 gram cranks no problem with my SS Air and it has stock spool bearings. Of course, the custom Rainshadow Immmortal rod it is on has a lot to do with that, also.
Well that's definitely the performance I'm looking for.
