Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

Even tho i don't need yet another reel, the compact body, light weight and smoothness is not something i'll be passing by. Will be getting the JDM version in Spring. I can tell this will be a massive success for Daiwa. They better take notes and create more reels like it (Japan made, 34mm spool, lig...

Re: New Steez A TW HLC

I am just glad this is not another Tatuloid frame reel from Daiwa

And just look at this "features" flooding. Makes it look like 13fishing or Shimano :cry:

Re: Shimano Digital Control In-depth

Dunno about the advancements. I sure loved the gen1 and 2 where they had 8 external adjustments. The 4-5 you currently have on most reels is simply not enough for me.

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

I contacted Daiwa. Was told they're made in Thailand, not Malaysia (the USDM ones that is) Correct - The new US Zillion SV TW G is made in the Daiwa Thailand facility where the other Zillions have been made of late. I stand by my mistake in disseminating that information improperly. I apologize to ...

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

USDM version says aluminum handle side plate. JDM version says both side plates are aluminum. What's going on here?

Always wanted a sub 6.5oz full bare titanium low profile baitcaster with some nice engraving on it. But who am i kidding, these will never be a thing.

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

If i had the choice between a JDM model with aluminum gears, Made in Japan and $50 more expensive (in reality, you will be able to find it for much cheaper in used like-new condition) or a USDM version with brass gears and made in Thailand, i wouldn't even consider the USDM one. Have seen enough Tha...

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

Just learned that both side plates are aluminium and weights only 6.3oz. That's pretty darn good. I can tell this reel was created to compete with 2020Met and Bantam, since these two are crushing it.

Remember the Daiwa's "connected feel"?

Remember the well known "connected feel" when talking about older Daiwa reels, most of which were using aluminium gears? That is gone. Now, the higher end reels feel like ice, you don't feel anything at all when under load (which is a very good thing). I think that back then, Daiwa reels were simply...
