Re: Preferred Shaky Head Worm? Is Floating Necessary?

This was a good post. I have been using Uptons worms this season, and they are pure floaters. Not very durable, but I know every time I use one it will float. For me it's a confidence thing, but I can see where a worm with less buoyancy could work at times where the floater does not.

Re: The new JapanTackle site

I hated it at first, but it's just something to get used to. It's a change and like myself I hate changes, but you will will get used to it.

The New river is amazing in the fall when the leaves change colors. I'm glad to see another fellow Mountaineer!

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

I barely had time to fish with it in the yard, let alone take it apart. Its got that mirror like finish, and in another picture I took you could clearly see myself taking the photo. Hopefully the finish will hold up!

Re: Daiwa PX Type R

Honestly haven't paid much attention to the USDM SV105, but if it shows 9, there could even be 4 in the handle. I'm sure there is a post on here that says for sure.

What do you usually throw with it? I'm debating between the EX or the LTD.

Re: Daiwa PX Type R

The faster speed with the SV is a good option to have. The SV only has 2 bearings per knob compared to the R with 4. SV has a total of 7 bearings while the R has 11. The SV holds a bit more line if that's a concern. I think it's 10lb-90yd and the R is 8lb-75yds. I think the pixy is an overall better...

Re: Daiwa PX Type R

OS7 spool bearings will be a good purchase. They are set right out of the box though IMO. I have 2!!

Re: Worm gear bushing to bearing upgrade help

I always use a wide flat head screwdriver to push the clip out (one wide enough to touch both ends of the eclip), and then take a tiny flathead screwdriver, put it in the gap between the eclip, twist the screwdriver so that it pushes out against the clip and releases it. Hope that makes sense.

Re: SV spool bearings

I added Boca OS7's on mine and like always have improved the reel. I have my spool tension a little tighter than some of my other reels, with my brakes on about 4, and I hardly ever get an overrun. I'getting great distance on a weightless wacky rigged 3" seiko.

Re: PX Type R - Underrated All Around reel?

I've had 50lb braid on mine at one time, pitchin jigs into nasty lay down. It was great for that. I pretty much keep 10lb braid on it now for some of my finesse jigs and lighter TRigs. The reel is a pitchin machine!
