Re: Pinion Frame Hump

That's more of a collar for the spool bearing. You'll likely notice that reels without this collar do not have a bearing under the spool pin on that side.

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Maybe that tick is from the bearings that come with it. No, I'm positive that it is the spool pin rocking back and forth inside the groove in the pinion gear. I took my Alphas SV with DIY spool out today and I heard the ticking sound too! I swore I did not hear it before reading this post :lol: I w...

Pinion Frame Hump

My buddy's Curado Is have recently been feeling gritty. After going through the reel we determined that the problem was the inner pinion bearing. Replacing that bearing made the problem go away. What we did notice after comparing it to the Curado K (and other reels), is that there is a hump most lik...

Good price and fast shipping
I may have missed it then. I've been checking a few sites and it's not even listed on JPangler, JLS or JapanTackle, only the 1016 models.

I never noticed the gold tint on my Alphas SV105P. I'll have to examine it closer later :lol:

Re: SV105P

I own both the Alphas SV105P and HS. I don't recall ever seeing an Alphas SV/SV105 with gold trim.

Daiwa's color scheme is usually...

Gunmetal - 5.X speed
Gold - 6.X speed
Red - 7.X speed
Purple /Lime Green (JDM) - 8.X speed+

Curious if these new Tatula 150 reels share the same gear sets with previous Tatulas. I would like a 6.3 in lefty.

Re: Conquest vs Ryoga

Can't wait to hear what you think of it. I'm planning to get one soon too, the 1520 version. Still undecid...

Here's the link with more information.

Looks like the old HD with updated cosmetics. Doesn't mention if it's Magforce Z or regular Magforce. The page looks like it is still a work in progress though.
