Deep spool option for calcutta 100te gt?

I was wondering if there was a deep spool option for the shimano calcutta 100te gt reel? Like can I put in the 200te spool to get more line capacity or no? I'd appreciate any info on if such an option exists? Thanks.

Re: Question on Daiwa Reel part

No different than any other stripped screw. The old way would be to drill a shallow clean hole upon the screw top with a standard drill bit, then tap/chisel a flat wedge just deep enough to insert a flat head screwdriver for removal. Nowadays we have easy to use reversed self tapping tips. They are...

Question on Daiwa Reel part

Fellow tackletour members, I would like some advice on how to remove a screw on my daiwa pixy reel. The screw I'm talking about is "Drive Shaft Retainer Screw (A)" that goes screws down the drive shaft retainer piece.

Re: Question about pixy spool compatibility

Does this spool perform better than the stock spool? And is it a deeper spool than stock? It'd be nice to have a little more line capacity in my Pixy sometimes. I believe both spools hold the same line capacity. On daiwa's website, they list the pixy type r spool as able to hold 75 yards of 8 lb te...

I've got an Airy Red, Silver Mica, Presso, and Type R and they're all interchangeable.

Re: Line Lubricants

Like all others have said, KVD Line and Lure conditioner is what I use to rid my fishing lines of memory. I recommend you spraying it on your reels the night before you go fishing so the lubricant can work its magic overnight.

Re: Revo Beast takes Best Freshwater Reel Icast 2014

I think the conquest reel should have won this. Anyways, Shimano solved a problem that happens when you get your finger stuck in the levelwind. Watch the video at 1:27 where the Shimano Rep talks about this. Kudos to shimano. http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/ICAST14.html?ccode=SHIMANO14A That's a pre...

Re: Should a swimbait rod be my next purchase?

Thank you for the bait selection, but I honestly don't think the 764 will handle baits over an ounce. I currently have a Matt Lures bluegill and it feels like it's over loading the rod.I don't throw it for that reason and it swims on it's side not matter the retrieve speed. I don't currently own a ...
