Re: Daiwa Steez ct sv or metanium 2020

For an all around reel, i'd go with the Met2020 over anything currently released.

Re: So how are SV BOOST spools?

Any difference in Zillion Boost and Steez Boost spools? I may ( actually, I will) get one for my Megabass FX68 with 3D Magforce brake System. Should outcast new Zillion. It might out cast the new Zillion but, it wont have Hyper Digigear, Hyper Clutch and all the other Hyper features. As we‘ve seen ...

Re: Steez ltd sv tw

It really is funny how they didn't even bother giving you a nice carbon handle for that price.

I was laughing at Shimano for naming every part of their reel as a feature, but now Daiwa does it as well. I would expect a noname chinese reel to do something of the sort, not Daiwa.

Re: So how are SV BOOST spools?

How is copycat site a copycat? Maybe he just worded the post wrong. copycat site is a big help and without doubt the best on YouTube for breaking down reels. The other channel I know of weighs spools and gives good info but threatened to block me over talking theology in the comments. I still smile...

So how are SV BOOST spools?

Just saw this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXNuUk7-N1E and it seems like its not overbraking like the standard SV spool?

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

Just like the Alphas TW, the black plastic piece on the handle side plate it killing it for me. Reminds me of $99 reels. I can't remember off the top of my head if they are plastic or not, but it's the same style retainer that Shimano uses for the Metanium MGL and Metanium B. The metal clip that Da...

Re: 300 Size Reels, Tat or Curado?

Between the two i'd go with the curado. But a Z2020 over both any day.

Tier 3- Quantum/13fishing/Lews/Okuma/Plueger when they made proper reels
Tier 4 - The OOF tier: KastKing, ZPI Alcance, Favorite, Pischifun, Ardent

Re: Problem for ZPI RC 002 spool not compatible with TD ITO

Try to remove the side plate, fit the inductor side of the spool into the side plate and try to turn the braking dial. I've never had nor heard of a dial not turning because of a spool. You should take a pic or two of the inductor.

Re: Kistler Reels

What's so cringe about it? The idea that Shimano/Daiwa offerings, of any kind, are without flaws. As if God-almighty himself sent not only his son, but also the blessed hands that work in Shimano/Daiwa factories, to save us from our reel buying sins. That and I can give a laundry list of use cases,...

Re: Kistler Reels

Why? Because pretentiousness, sanctimony, and anecdotal dogma are ubiquitous throughout the largemouth bass fishing reel community. For a perfect example, see ...flawless Met MGL... And I’m the owner of 5 Metanium 2020 models. And reading statements like this make me cringe. What's so cringy about ...

Re: Problem for ZPI RC 002 spool not compatible with TD ITO

This is how the spool look from above. As you can see it seems to be slightly displaced to the left. What I cant understand is why I cant set the magnet above 5 o 6 because it turns really hard. https://i.ibb.co/YTB5kpG/20201115-205032.jpg By really hard, you mean that you feel friction? If not, th...
