Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

I saw the pictures that prove the gear isn't aluminum, scrolled down from the provided link and read the comparison of Steez A versus Morethan PE SV TW and he included pictures of both. What are the benefits of bronze versus brass? It looked from the pictures that both reels had a clicking drag. Th...

Re: G1 Duralumin Drive Gear

I don't believe the Steez A and Steez SV TW gear sets are interchangable...didn't fact check that but I thought I read that. I have a few of both A's and SV TW's. Had to replace the gear set on just 1 but I use it for flipping/pitching jigs in wood /w heavy fluoro. Knew it would happen, didn't care...

Re: Daiwa certate

it is in the new LT sizes and has an alloy monoque body like the exist and larger HD certates. the line capacities are quite generous considering the size of the reels.

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

I don’t courage anybody Morethan owner to open their new reel. Usually neither do I to open my new (and expensive) reel. But I know that some people want’s to open their new reel and to see inside the reel. I’m just hoping that somebody who usually open their reels has decided to buy Morethan. I en...

Re: New Daiwa spinning reel - no manual in box or online

Daiwa does not have lubrication ports on there reels and Shimano have now removed them. should only put grease inside a spin reel anyway and the opening on shimano reels was in the wrong spot onto the back of the gear.

Well the millionaire is a 34mm spool so the spacers should fit all current steez reels, tdz, t3 etc

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Came sooner than expected. Just so happens I had a rod waiting. This should work. Will report back when it's no longer as shiny. I didn't need to see this. Amazing looking paring. :evil22: If you dare to disassemble could you let's us know it it has brass or aluminum gears? Been wondering the same ...

Re: Daiwa SV Light

Not to knock your creation, but why do so many insist upon Steezing up their SS's? I think they look great stock, especially the Light. I say well done, Namiki-san! Domo Arigato! https://i.postimg.cc/pdRc2SLj/20181201-131743.jpg There is also the comfort factor. The steez nose piece does feel more ...

Re: hedghog ZR

I believe shimano bearings to be the better of the oem bearings and since I have found TSI-321 I haven't found the need to upgrade bearings. I run Daiwa reels and run the factory bearings that have been flushed with acetone then treated with TSI-321

Re: If I need new BFS reel?

From other forums and groups that I am involved in is Magnetic braking works better for BFS with some suggesting linear magnetic braking such as abu use is better or fixed inductors on daiwa reels. As the mag Z/V and SV still rely on centrifugal force to push the inductor into the magnetic field , b...
