Before I Buy Spool Question

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Before I Buy Spool Question

Post by goldrod » Tue Jan 14, 2020 10:51 pm

Anyone have this spool?
Also, If if will slide in a T3 wouldn't it go in the Steez platform?
Cant blow on the dice on this one.. have to stick to my budget

Daiwa SLP Works, RCSB 1012/1016 G1 Magforce-Z spools 2019 New, to add casting distance
Daiwa T3(all models), Zillion1016TW, Steez1016TW, Steez A1016, Ryoga1025, Pluton1025 and etc. Flat bottom, light-weight 13g spool to add casting distance by the help of Magforce-Z brake system especially for light weight rigs 7g-14g 1/4-1/2oz. G1 drage Extra strong duralumin spool. MAGFORCE-Z brake. Casts great for heavier than 7g 1/4oz. 1012 G1 spool 0.285mm(US10lb)-100m(110yds) 1016 G1 spool 0.330mm(US12lb)-100m(110yds)

T3 spool and steez A spool are the same dimensions.

that looks to be just a Steez A spool /w an RCS logo. similiar to the RCS g1 1016sv is the same as the steez svtw . It's not an improvement over the RCS1016 that comes stock in the t31016. I wasn't a big fan of the Steez A spool in general. I replaced them /w the SVTW steez spool and zillion SVtw spool.

This. The Zpi Nrc001-m and PG are crazy good in the T3. Fixed inductor with great consistency and casting ability.

The stock spool that comes in the MB FX68 doesnt have a fixed inductor does that make it an SV spool?

Do you know of a way to stop the inductor from popping out on the stock MB FX68 spool?

Long cast mode? The inductor will still do its thing but the magnets will be much further away.

I took it out for a spin,I was throwing a 1/4 oz round jighead with a 4inch easy shiner and really wasnt impressed with the casting distance.

I found the problem on the reel,the center magnet on the magforce 3D system doesnt move when I turn the dial.Any tips or advice in how to fix this problem?

Easiest solution is finding a 3D magnet assembly. Otherwise, you need to figure out which part isn't working and order it, either from Daiwa in the States or from Plat in Japan.

The plastic drum turns but the magnet stays put and doesnt turn with the plastic drum.I'm thinking maybe I could just put some epoxy and glue the two parts together.

Are you turning the mag brake dial (on the side of the palm plate) or using the switch on the bottom of the palm plate to select one of all round, long cast, or max brake setting...?

No the 3 settings on the bottom of the side plate work fine,it's the 20 click dial on the palm plate that is half broken

Good Stuff in this thread

ZPI PG and M spools are great
It has been my experience that spools add character to reels
or change the character for the better. Hence I try different spools in different platforms.

I was thinking the same thing. I didn’t buy it.
I am looking at another 1000PE G1 spool
