The KVD baitcaster has aluminum gears.
Not a fan of that.
I'll take Doyos aluminum gears over Shimanos brass or aluminum any day.
LOL!!!

Re: Shallow Spool For Daiwa SOL - Left Hand?

I have an Alphas Finesse Custom spool listed in the Classifieds. It's a solid improvement over the stock spool for light weights.

Re: Relaxing/Rounding Out Cork Handles?

Steam it over an open boiling pot of water. This has gotten minor indentations out for me before in cork and EVA. It may soften/fluff it enough to manipulate it back into shape more so than you've already managed. Careful, though; the heat will also soften the epoxy if overdone.

Does it have grease?
I'm not sure if they are legally able to import grease into Thailand. :P That's gotta be why the Tatulas come bone dry. :doh:

SV is so overrated
Unless you are talking about skipping, I agree.
A must for skipping. It being included in every reel is a mistake.
....along with the T-Wing being included in every reel being a mistake. ](*,)

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Any tips on smoothing them out or is that normal for these reels to buzz in your hand when palming and spinning the handle? Being such new old stock I would start at a grease refresh... Brass gears so shouldn't be an issue, but the greases may have dried out and your experiencing a byproduct of tha...

Re: Shimano DC white dot

Since it is an electromagnetic assembly, could it possibly be an indicator of polarity of the magnet?

Re: New Daiwa reel?

I will gladly buy some Tatula's if and when they change the palm side plate to one like on the Steez CT. I wish, but that's not gonna happen. They will be cutting their own throats, proverbially. That seamless plate is one of the reel's best features. Daiwa does need to make all their reels like th...

any recommendations on what I should clean the cork with before the u40, all of these rods have a couple years of use on them.
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (the foam pads).
+1
Also, a 320 grit sanding sponge will make cork look new, but gotta be light-handed with it.

Re: New Daiwa reel?

The "new" Tatula CT is not based on the 100 platoform. It is the old Tatula from 2016. Tatulas don't go away. They just keep making more and renaming the old ones and releasing them as new (Tatula 150, 200 and Tatula CT) Thanks for pointing that out , I see it now ,the handle threw me off. Took me ...

Looking for some feedback on the deep Zonda spool in an Alphas R Edition. How does it behave? Is it like a Type R+ in an OG Steez or a little less loosey goosey...? What do you use yours for?
Thanks!
It has both great control and distance in any Alphas platform.

I need to get on the hunt for some Jackall Bling 55's. My stash is dangerously low now.
That’s a good one Tim, not much else on the market like it.
I still have a few of the original Poe's cedar cranks, too. I only fish them in open water. 8-[
