I've had my Tatula CT for a year now and have used it on/off. Quite like it with the DIY spool.
Anyway, it hasn't been the smoothest reel from day 1 and i wasn't too fussed being a $100 reel, but having felt a mate's HRF (based off the larger zillion tw body), I feel it's got the potential to be a lot better.
So wondering if anyone has tried to see if other gears would fit the Tatula CT.
Was thinking the gear set from the HRF since I know what it's like, but it's from the bigger zillion body.
Other reels that I'm thinking gear sets from are the Tatula SV and the Zillion SV TW.
Relubed the gears with Shimano DG06, but didn't help. Looked pretty dry when I opened it up (see pics).

Love to hear others recommendations for geary Daiwa BC's.
Possible, the free floating spool design versus the spool pin through design would present some major challenges though...Shermanjr62 wrote: ↑Thu Jun 20, 2019 9:03 pmI actually tried changing out a Tatula SV XS and a Zillion SV HS because I wanted a faster Zillion before actually buying the 9.1:1 gear set, and the pinion gear for a Zillion SV is different than a Tatula SV. The top of the pinion on a Zillion SV is designed to go up into what is the spool bearing on a Tatula SV. The gears are the same size though, so they technically would work between the Tatula Models. If you were a machinist or had a lot of knowledge you could probably modify Zillion 9.1:1 gears to fit in a Tatula SV.
