Re: Daiwa Z2020 I need to go shallower,

The RCS 2014 spool is the only shallow spool option available for the Z200/Z2020 Ryoga 2020 and Pluton reels. But I found it didn't really offer any better performance than the standard Z2020 spool. All reels mentioned above the spools are interchangeable with the spool in the Z2020 being the best i...

Re: High quality oil, lube, etc

you really cannot go past CALS grease , it is perfect for drags and brass gears, for alloy gears I use a ceramic grease and for oil I use TSI-321.

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

I would like to see a bfs version of the Steez A with 32mm spool like the SV Light. There currently isn't anything in their BFS range with t wing. Then maybe a Steez A HD with brass gears and back up antireverse pawl. And if they added a back up antireverse pawl and hyper digigears to the new 2018 Z...

Re: ZPI M or 1012 g1

To add to the confusion SLP have just released a 1012 G1 magforce Z spool as well. There is a short video clip on the SLP WORKS youtube channel

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

getting back to the Morethan I am thinking at only 5 grams difference between it and a Steez A it will have the same G1 Alloy gears which is no problem as the Steez A is proving to be standing up to the tough fish. the weight difference is most likely for the 100mm handle. I am going to say its just...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

The SS Sv and The SV light have brass pinion and alloy main gear. there is no hybrid main gear in either, You sure? I could have swore I saw a hybrid main gear on the SV Light LTD. I am not 100 percent but...pretty certain. Not calling you a liar, just saying what I THINK I recall. I have taken apa...

New 1012 spool from Daiwa

I have seen in the last week a short youtube clip of a new 1012 G1 mag Z spool coming from SLP works, does anyone have any more info on it. could potentially be another to add to my collection.

Re: ZPI M or 1012 g1

1012 G1 - Nice. ZPI M - Very nice. In another thread w. ongoing activity, Barramaniac writes that Steez A plus ZPI M is a fantastic combination...I have the spool.... That was Strewth that wrote that, I don't have any ZPi spools but do have the Steez 1016G1 SV, Zillion 1016G! SV and 1012G1 SV SLP s...

Re: The Ryoga 1016H

This one has had a hard life, got it cheap initially as it was well and truly scratched up. had it painted and rebuilt the reels internals so like new. getting a bit knocked around now from lots of use. It has even been to the bottom of the bay in 8 metres of salt water, got ripped out of my hands o...

Re: The Steez SV TW

Sharp looking reel. I'm liking the Septon style knobs too. Time will tell if they go sticky like the shimano septon knobs. being a reel repairer I have seen plenty of the shimano knobs that have gone very sticky. especially being in the tropics where a combination of sunscreen and insect repellant ...

Re: Daiwa Ryoga Sizes? What does it all mean?

1016 uses same size spool as a 103 but body is slightly larger with much bigger gears, and takes all rcs 1000 size spools. The 2020 is the same size as a pluton, spools interchangeable , so wider and larger diameter than the 1016. The Shrapnel is same diameter as a 2020 just a lot wider similar to a...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

What's the difference of this reel against the Steez A? What justifies the additional 100 USD in price? Thanks for the info. Brass gears. Black paint with gold accents. Some mill work on the frame and carbon fiber inlays. Steez A is kinda boring looking IMO and I have never been a fan of aluminum g...

Re: Gear replacements

replaced two gear sets on the Met2013. Those thin and ultra light alumium gears shimano uses in many reels are garbage in my opinion. This raspy noise and feel is so annoying when you're retrieving a decent resistance bait such as a spinnerbait The Met 2013 stock gears are notoriously bad for produ...
