Re: Plastic broken piece inside SV Spool

It's rather straight forward, just don't loose the retainer clip and disassemble it all in a clear plastic bag to catch any jettisoned parts. How it happens... Chinsy plastic, coupled with shear forces and a cup that both acts against rotation forces and magnets - possible it grabs somewhere at som...

Re: SV103 Spool Tuning

I'm not sure if anyone has noticed or not, but the black Ray's inductor is a little different. The black one tapers about the same but the base is thicker. It's almost identical to an R+ inductor, whereas the gold one is a little thinner at the base. I'll try to get some measurements today.

Re: Spool options for IP68

I thought the IP spool was supposed to be awesome. Are the magnets in the IP extra strong? It's a good spool, just not a long caster, at least for me. The stock IP spool is identical to a J-Dream spool but the magnets in the IP reels are stronger than in a Zillion, that's why you're feeling like it...

Re: Megabass clone

Did you buy it with warranty? If so, I'd contact Megabass and see if they can do anything for you.

Re: Spool options for IP68

100M or HLC would be good starting points

Re: Ss sv spool options

Just a heads up on the Ray's kits: the blank inductor is almost identical to the Type R+ inductor, but the gold one is thinner yet. It's a little wilder.

Re: Current Rod Builds

I rewrapped am original Kistler LTA pretty well exactly like that. Are you doing a simple spiral of something with a few more transition guides? The spiral I just completed on a RX7 flippin blank was in the ball park of 30, 60, 90, 120, 150 and 180. Probably a little over kill but I think the more ...

What did you have to do to get the TD-Z line guide to fit?
Threw it on the manual mill and elongated the original hole.
The one for the guide pin?

Re: Before I Buy Spool Question

The plastic drum turns but the magnet stays put and doesnt turn with the plastic drum.I'm thinking maybe I could just put some epoxy and glue the two parts together. Are you turning the mag brake dial (on the side of the palm plate) or using the switch on the bottom of the palm plate to select one ...

Re: Before I Buy Spool Question

Easiest solution is finding a 3D magnet assembly. Otherwise, you need to figure out which part isn't working and order it, either from Daiwa in the States or from Plat in Japan.

Re: Steez SV 8.1:1

You could put a longer handle on it but then you have to crank a bigger circle for the same amount of IPT.
