Your phones about to die dude better get that on charge :p

That's a sweet reel man, did you order it?

Ordered 2, the 2000 and 2500. 2000 is for a drop shot Rod that's in the process of being built and the 2500 for my other custom, shakey head Rod. So that's out of the way. Next reel I'm gonna wait for the Zillion HLC then hopefully the rest of the JDM zillions prices will drop a little more.

HLC are pretty sick. You cannot find an HLC spool for the old zillions ANYWHERE  :shocking:

HLC looks bad ass! The concept of the braking adjustment, I honestly don't know if it will make a difference. I'm casting 3/4oz on the c rig. Some guys do 1/2oz, others 1oz, I just stick with the 3/4 so now that I think about it, should be set and forget!

Have like a dozen rods up for sale on BBC once those start going, going to start the replacement purchases.

IMO the G's will go for more, if you use ebay people don't know what the hell they are doing, I seen them around 100.....and I think the XT 1000s could be more like 190 for you.

I know how much you guys like troubleshooting. Fix this list lol

Add a JDM Daiwa Reel and Gear Ratio to each empty slot

Casting:
Fury 705CB - Squarebills - Tat 6.3:1
Fury 735C - Frogs - Tat 6.3:1
Fury 795SB - A Rig - Tat HD JDM 6.3:1
Savvy 663 - Flukes - Tat Type R 6.3:1
Champ 684CB - Jerkbaits -
Champ 685CB - Topwater -
Champ 704CB - 4-8ft cranks -
Champ 705CB - 10-18ft cranks -
Champ 702C - 3/16oz Jig -
Champ 703C - 3/8-1/2oz T Rig -
Champ 734C - SpinnBuzzChat -
ChampX 703C - 3/8-1/2oz Jig -
ChampX 743C - Keitechs -
ChampX 744C - C Rig -

Spinning:
Custom 1 - Shakey Head - Ballistic 2500ex
Custom 2 - Drop Shot - Ballistic 2000ex

For Crig I'm leaning towards Zillion HLC and squarebill I'm thinking do Tat Crazy Cranker 5.5:1 which is JDM only in lefty.

Unless I end up with a dozen Steez in this list I'm gonna just go ahead and order them all in one shot then sell everything left over. If I end up keeping a few Shimanos I think the Met XG would be a good be on the Keitech Rod.

Have fun guys lol

during practice as I had a Chronarch E for squarebills I switched to the Tat throwing a 1.0 Strike King squarebill. The E was getting maybe 20 yards. The Tat 30+ yards easy even into the wind a good distance. No backlashes. Tried again the next practice day between the Scorpion and Tat, not as good as the Tat but wayyyy better than the E. I did this same scenario a month ago throwing a 110 Jr. No other Shimano can hold a match to the Scorp. It's cut and dry which is the better performer. But the Tat just does it for me. The Scorp can perform as good but you have to be a little more mindful thumbing the spool the Tat not so much, more user friendly you can say. Idk hated the Tats when I got them but then again was because the 13 reel seat. Now that I'm all Dobyns and the reel seat is normal I have zero complaints on comfort. I'm sold lol just wish they didn't skimp on the USDM models.

I hear you, that scorp can sling a popx or a shadow rap like nothing I even seen....I just put a set of hedghog ZR bearings in mine. It's just silly now.

I fished a friends tatula once, I didn't really have a problem with it being too big. I think the 200 shimanos palmed worse for me. wide doesn't bother me its the taller reels I don't like. I never got a tatula because I heard the early versions would groove the line guide and frames with braid.

Once I got the scorp it was all over, like why switch lol.

that's why I don't like the Met for the jig Rod I rest my index finger across the top under the line guide, the distance from the thumb bar to the top is like a inch longer than any other reel. Those bearings gotta be sick. I just flush and lube the stocks for the most part. Did a handful of orange seals on some reels and didn't justify the price tag for me anyways.

Yeah that is what I hear they are like a stretch limo  lo I am interested in the low end like Casitas and upgrading parts like bearings and gears. they seem to have nicer ergos and some decent features.

They are not too bad, I picked them up at the tackle trap 8.99 a pop.

So as my research continues here's what I'm thinking so far

C Rig - Zillion HLC when it's released
Squarebills - Tatula JDM 5.5:1 'Crazy Cranker'
Keitechs - Tatula HLC 8.1:1
3/8-1/2oz Jigs - Zillion SV 9.1:1

Then maybe (2) Tat CT Type Rs for the 702 and 703 pitching setups to keep costs down.

From what I'm reading the Tat HLC is designed to bomb casts as far as possible but the Zillion HLC adds additional braking for the heavier presentations. Can't find anything to confirm wether or not the Tat HLC adds more breaking or not which I wouldn't want on Keitechs.
