Re: SV Spool Paranoia

Is it safe to assume that a spool prone to sticking will exibit this behavior out of the box or is this something that can develop over time? I've been fortunate to avoid the issue thus far. It happened to mine and mine was new. What model was your reel??? Also how long did it take to happen and di...

Re: New Chronarch Video

I really wonder why reports of the curado 70 generally state it as being sometimes wild casting. They are all the same braking styles/designs and unless the higher end models have MUCH better tolerances there should be more balance. I know a Metanium costs much more and has a lighter spool (assuming...

Re: SV Spool Paranoia

Using a dry lube in there where the inductor slide travels along the shaft, is somewhat better than an oil also. Interesting... my father is a mechanical engineer and suggested this, I think it is like a powder or something right? I wonder if certain weights or styles of fishing make sticking more ...

Re: SV Spool Paranoia

I've owned several SV reels and never had one stick; I would not worry about it. Oddly enough my two Steez 103's sat for about 8 months this year and most in the garage and both inductors were stuck in the out position...gave them a quick pull and they freed up instantly. I oiled them and never had...

Re: Shimano svs gen 1 vs 2

The older red brake shoes are a little more confusing to lock/unlock from what I can tell. Felt like I was going to break a friend's Ci4+ while engaging one and adjusting a Curado 70 at the display rack was very easy. The new brake shoes just move up 90 degrees to lock and the old ones slid sideways...

Re: SV Spool Paranoia

So it isn't too hard to fix??? I watched a tutorial about filling the gap between the angled plastic and metal axle, preventing the inductor's angled plastic from sticking in there. I figure mine are fine for now and new enough Daiwa would do me right...

SV Spool Paranoia

So after reading about stuck inductors I am terrified. My SV105 did something strange today and it confused me. I cast and went to adjust afterwards and it felt like the brake dial adjustment was spinning without clicking... Then I paused, slowed down, tried again and it clicked and adjusted fine. I...

Re: Alpha sv105 line capacity

Filled mine with 10lb HiSeas Fluoro twice full and had tiny bit left over for spinning setup leaders. It is a thicker diameter fluoro and don't know the exact right now, but it is thicker than sniper or invisx

Re: What to expect Daiwa Alphas 105 Finesse Custom

I have a Tatula HD with a fixed inductor, and an original Tatula Type R with a moving inductor (magforce vs magforce Z). The Tatula HD with absolutely bomb lures, not so good with lighter baits, but 3/8 plus the distance is the same as the Type R, you just don't have as much control for less aerodyn...

Re: Reel Cabinet

I hope there is some kind of insurance covering all these, I have some weird OCD thing where they have to match a rod. I honestly have trouble switching reels around or even trying them on different rods.

Re: Dual Pinion Bearing Support

Most reels do have a bearing under the tension knob, but that does not mean it supports the pinion. Sometimes it's the spool bearing. In the case of the Zillion it does support the bearing. For example the Tatula's pinion vs the Zillion TWS via the TackleTour comparison article. On the Tatula (left...

Re: Curado "i" ... is this the end ?

I don't see them stealing the light off the Daiwa's that easy. I think the Daiwa's are easier to use, regardless of which brand consumers prefer... Ease of use helps people get into baitcasting, who knows though, I personally see more people use Shimano's locally, but 95% of fisherman I know have $5...

Re: Dual Pinion Bearing Support

Okay, so do Daiwa Zillion TWS or Revo Premier casting reels not have 3 full bearings on spool pinion sideplate??? I know they have one on the brake sideplate, I know they have one on the spool. If these reels have a bearing under/in the tension knob, then the pinion TECHNICALLY has dual support. I a...

Re: Thin, Limp and Strong

Well I was reading and felt I might could help, I trade and try all kinds of line with tournament friends and take their leftovers that they strip off reels after season ends... For fluoro I love HiSeas Quattro camo 100% fluorocarbon (not the copoly/mono), go a size smaller though, it is thicker but...

Re: No Shimano, No Daiwa

This thread has kept me from feeling alone in the world. I really, really love my equipment and only make about $11 an hour till I finish school (2 more years of hell) so I really am proud of a $200-$300 reel. I just say this because I would be sick if I couldn't use my Daiwa's/Shimano. I would stil...
