Re: G1 1016 Spool

Is this an SV spool? If so then this is normal. They are meant to be run with zero spool tension and even a tiny bit of side to side play. It is an sv spool. I originally had the sv103 spool in it and with the spool tension all the way off and brakes on 0 I couldn't backlash it if I tried. That sam...

G1 1016 Spool

I recently picked up a G1 1016 spool for an OG steez. I'm not sure if something else is going on but this spool feels very choked when trying to freespool, even with ceramic bearings. Do these spools behave differently in the newer reels or is this normal?

Re: Do You Have A Favorite Cheap Rod?

13 Fishing Omen Black 6' 10" ML casting rod. This was originally an Australian market only bream rod that was hard to find here in the states. It originally retailed for around $100 about 4-5 years ago. Out of nowhere it popped up on Amazon for $58 back in 2016 and I immediately jumped on it knowin...

#69? I think that's going to be a little difficult to beat. What type of spool is in there?
It is the steez limited 105 spool. This spool does really well for what I need.

Re: Spool choice for Zilion Type R/916C (34mm)

The fixed inductor acts like a linear mag brake, no difference is applied brake based off of spool speed. I would give it a shot, worst case move the line over to the 1016 later.

Re: Spool choice for Zilion Type R/916C (34mm)

The RCS 1016 spool I have is a long casting beast for me. I personally use an sv spool for frogging though as I skip a bunch. Currently using a sv103 spool in a tdz for that. I also just got some spacers for my Zillion 50th, but that one got a Steez LTD 105 spool for fishing jigs and Texas rigs.

My 50th I found a couple of years ago hiding NIB in a tackle store.

I personally use Hawgtech bearings which can be had as low as 8.00 each.

Re: Reel Suggestions for 754c Rod

My Daiwas feel nothing like a doyo reel. I can't speak for the tatula elite but all of my other Daiwa are OG zillions, steezs and alphas platforms. The one Doyo reel I have is an ALC BF7 and its a great reel, just not as solid feeling.

Re: Good news for Falcon rod fans

I had one cara and sold it. I found the spine was way off and had issues with heavy Hookset wanting to torque the rod over to one side. Damn sensitive rod though and I'm glad to see them move away from the ACS seat.

Re: Reel Suggestions for 754c Rod

If you're looking for a non Twing reel the Sv103 would be awesome on that rod. These however are discontinued so you would have to buy used. I recently bought an Xtasy 753 during the sale, I ended up with a OG steel on mine and love it.

Re: bfs-ish rod?

i've kinda put this on the back burner for now. i still want to get a set up, but it has been too much of a problem trying to buy what i think i want. sometimes when things are too hard, there's a good reason. i have a 6'10m 13 omen 2, and i used it the other day. it won't get down to the 1/8oz hea...

Re: Show off your bigbait setups!!!

I don't really fish swimbaits over 2oz.

My combo is
Megabass XXX Destruction
Daiwa Zillion 50th

I mainly fish Swaiver 168's on this setup.
