Re: Impressions of new Tatula rods?

Just got the Tatula 610mh Such an amazing blank. Looks identical to the Zillion but sanded near the base. Light, crisp, great taper. Sending it back though as the reel seat is horrid. It is so big and bulky. I'm 6'4" wear xl or xxl gloves and this seat too cumbersome for me...how are the Japanese u...

Re: TD Fuego Spools

I was going to suggest the DIY/Rays Zillion spool, but they don't seem to be available any longer. Doesn't look like they make the correct size in the new version. I like the Red PE spool in my Zillion. Probably pretty good in the Fuego too. I've seen a few people like it the Fuego/zillion. For you...

Re: TD Fuego Spools

My vote is for the 100M spool. I like it for anything 1/4 oz to 1 oz. It really makes a world of difference vs. the stock spool. It is controlled and gets great distance. I used the Fuego/100M spool combo as a frog reel, and it would really bomb, even with heavy braid. I've had the Stock gold PE sp...

Re: TD Fuego Spools

Dropping in the stock TD-Z 100m spool makes a world of difference in the original Fuego platform. I've always been a fan of that spool... I do see this one recommended a lot when searching through old posts and it's winning the poll right now. Would you say it makes it better all around or for spec...

I liked the TDZ 100m in mine, great caster.
As an all around reel or was it better with lighter or heavier lures?

Just a note to go with my vote for the 100M. Add an R+ inductor and HLC spring and that'll make it an amazingly versatile spool. Really frees it up without making it unnecessarily wild.
Besides the 100m spool being hard to find, is the r+ inductor available from online sources?

Re: TD Fuego Spools

I personally like the gold PE spool the best. Ive had almost every spool available to fit my TD Zillion, and stuck with the gold PE. It seems to be the best all around casting spool for me. Everyone has a different style, and spools can for sure aid in getting the most out of your reel according to...

TD Fuego Spools

Im just curious which one people prefer (either past owners or current). I've read many posts with people liking the 100m spool. Some not liking it. A few posts with people liking the red PE Spool, at least one liking the gold pe spool. I believe I found some liking a HLC spool (I believe a zillion ...

Re: Show us your Sol

After looking through this thread I decided I needed to find one for myself. Hopefully it will look like some of your modified ones soon. Really like the purple spools and cork knobs (maybe carbon fiber handle who knows). Anyway here it is. https://i.ibb.co/D7WQNFT/IMG-20190708-010636.jpg https://i...

I have used the TW covers for years and never had any problems.
Any silver or light colored reels
Yes, pixy's and Alphas
Cool, I have a Sol, Fuego, and sv103 that I'd rather didn't end up with black bleeding on them (mostly the orange Sol)

Thanks. I'll look at them. I really like the slp I grip knobs though so I'm probably gonna hold off for a while

Just the white Slp knobs you are referring to, and an old set of Zpi skull knobs that are even harder to come by.
Yeah I have seen the skull knobs. Not a big fan of them though. Guess I'll just have to keep an eye out for some used white slp knobs.

Thanks
