Re: Tat Elite vs Zillion SV

The Tatula Elite came in the mail yesterday. First impression is that it feels almost like the Steez A in hand. It doesn’t have the plasticy feel of the 100. The gears feel like they are super dry. I’ll need to crack it open prior to the season and put grease on the gears. I wish someone could conv...

Re: Daiwa Tatula SV TW

The new Tat Sv , has a graphite side plate gear side. No mention of aluminum. https://tackletrap.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=75_823_3041&products_id=15263 That sucks. That's a backwards step from the Tatula Elite reels It's a matter of perspective really. If the new 2020 Tatula SV TW...

Re: gear meshing

Indexing used gear sets during maintenance certainly won't hurt anything.

Re: Tat Elite vs Zillion SV

I have a Elite long cast. I'm getting a couple more ft over the og Tat Sv with the same bait. Nothing earth shattering. Both reels have stock spool bearings flushed and lubed with yellow rocket fuel.

Re: Best lipless crankbait in da business

Booyah one knocker and hard knocker in royalty catches fish in just about any body of water I fish.
Yo Zuri Rattlin vibe 2.6 in gold n black does the same.

Re: Sunline Super Natural

Well I fished the super natural two evenings in a row , and was not impressed.Took it off and threw it in garbage. Way more stretch than big game , and it seemed to curl up bad in front of the bait , kind of a weird characteristic. And the sensitivity is not good enough to be worm fishing that's for...

There’s much better mono and copoly available that’s priced the same or better. Defier is great line but the price is a huge negative for a mono
That's what I was thinking , a lot of money for mono. I'm sure it's good stuff though.

Re: Sunline Super Natural

I change line often. Probably just spool up this worm rod with Sniper next. Wanted to try this out because it was cheap lol.

Re: Braid that holds it's color

Spiderwire invisibraid , it's white , never changes color. It's my fav for spinning reels , I use it with about 2' or 3' of leader. I tried a white braid a few years ago And some of the tannic ponds that I fish turned it brown almost instantly. I think I used one of the Suffix lines. Do you have an...

Re: Braid that holds it's color

Are there any high viz. braids that are particularly long lasting? I only grudgingly use braid on my spinning reels and without the ability to easily line watch I can’t stand the stuff.
