  1. Hi, Seem Daiwa got different packaging for different poundage in their diameter. 60lb - 0.28mm 65lb - 0.41mm (only 5lb extra) 80lb - 0.35mm (thinner than 65lb???????) So how I select?
  2. Since this is a relatively new line, it deserves it's own thread to make future search easier to find. 8lbs J Braid Grand: ABS : (19.25,17.10,18.55) = 18.30 lbs average Line Mass : 7.20 mg/ft, very light and thin braid Line Diameter : listed at .005 actual is .0074 S/W : 2.54 FG knot : (15.05,13.95,14.60) = 14.53 lbs average = 79.42% Double line uni-uni = 13.65 lbs which is excelllent Twice thru Palomar knot to swivel : 13 lbs = 71 % 15 lbs J Braid Grand: ABS : (26.75,29.05,25.60) = 26.75 lbs average Line Mass : 13.60 mg/ft, average for 10-15 lb braid Line Diameter : listed at .007inch actual is closer to .0102 inch S/W = 2.0 FG knot : (22,17.6,15.75 lbs) = 18.45 lbs but very inconsistent = 68 %. Needs further testing with next batch 20 lbs J Braid Grand: ABS : (40.50,38.60,35.10) = 38.07 lbs Line Mass : 17.10 mg/ft Line Diameter : listed at .009 inch, actual is closer to .0114 inch S/W : 2.23 FG Knot : (24.40,23.30,24.80)= 24.17 lbs very consistently bad, even after I scraped the line, it came in at 25lbs. FG knot length was also varied from 20-32 turns with no improvement. FG Knot Strength is low 63.49 % Double line uni knot is 18.05 lbs = 48 % Twice Thru Palomar Knot is 23.80 lbs = 63 % PR knot is 37.35 lbs = 98.12 % So knot strength is pretty bad and PR knot proves itself as the king of all line to leader knot once again. 30 lbs J Braid Grand: ABS : (46.10,43.85,47.60) = 45.85 lbs average Line Mass : 21.60 mg/ft Line Diameter : listed at .011 inch, actual is closer to .0128 inch S/W : 2.12 FG Knot : 33.40 lbs = 72.85 % consistent with Relix knot results so only one test due to limited line Relix Knot > 34.40 lbs (mono broke due to multiple reuse) PR Knot is 44.10 lbs = 96% So 30 lbs has great S/W ratio and excellent knot strength all around.
  3. Need to thin the herd to finance some new gear and other things. Listing some very fine reels. I am the original owner of all listed except the Torque. All reels shipped insured via USPS, buyer takes PP fees. [Sorry for bunched up pics below Im on my phone, they are in order however.] First up is a brand new inbox(opened for pictures), JDM 2016 Daiwa Catalina 4k straight from Digitaka.

  8. Hey guys, I bought a penn clash 5000 at the end of last season and paired it with my 9’ mojo and it was treating me great. I caught about fifty bass up to about 18 pounds on it at the end of this season and countless cocktail bluefish. For some reason there it a bit of resistance when the line roller comes past the reel foot. It is very noticeable at slow retrieves but is gone once you start to crank faster. On faster retrieves it is still rough and the reel has gotten raspy and noisy. My battle II 4000 feels like a Daiwa compared to it now even though the clash has CNC gears. I’ve opened up the reel to check for saltwater intrusion and to regrease the gears about a dozen times and noticed nothing out of the ordinary. I took it to my local (experienced) tackle shop to get it repaired and they said it might be the rotor is not balanced. I disagree because it can be felt on the slowest of retrieves but not as much on faster ones. Any suggestions would be great.

  10. For sale is a brand new Saltist 20P. Never fished. Spooled with 40lb jbraid grand. Fantastic reel. Smooth. Well built. 5.1 low gear, great for blackfish. $220 shipped
  11. Hey folks, Had a SASD15 previously. Sold it. Just picked up another. For whatever reason (maybe in my head), it feels like this one has more play in the handle knob/shaft. Not the arm. I may be remembering wrong, but I thought that my old one had no play at all. Anyone experiencing this? Thanks.
  12. Scooby did a great tear down video on this reel earlier this year. Then I found out they had a P (5.1 ratio) version. I picked up a 15P for my dad as he doesn't fish much and at $225 (no tax, free shipping, ebay bucks), I figured it was a perfect buy. Hasn't been fished yet, but looking it over, I have to say this is one very well made reel. No it doesn't have 10 bearings. But it has 4 CRBB's and that's more than enough. At least I know the bearings I have are corrosion resistant. 17 pounds of drag is more than enough and even the star drag itself feels comparable to the saltiga. It's very smooth. It's not heavy at all but it feels solid. I was so impressed, I purchased the 20 size for my wreck rod. Figured I didn't need to spend $400 for my least used set up. That all being said, I think for the money it's a better value than a trini, ocea jigger, or saltiga (not to say I wont/dont own them and like having super nice reels).. No, it doesn't have the same amount of refinement, smoothness, high level of gearing, protection and so on and so forth... But it's just a really good reel at a really fair price and you barely hear anything about them. Would've thought the toggers in the North East would have been all over them.
  13. Looking to trade these two new reels for a ZeeBaas ZX2 25 or 27 Bailess in good to great condition. My first preference would be a 2-for-1 trade, but if no takers, individual prices are below. Saltiga 30HA: $380 Shipped PayPal Saltiga 35LD: $380 Shipped PayPal Thanks for looking!
  14. I purchased this reel in May, 2017 at $450 from TD. I've used it only 3 times, but there are some signs of wear. Mainly, a scratch on the left side plate (in the pic) and some dings. I intended to use it on the surf, but it never made it to the beach. I practiced distance casting from a bridge, but couldn't tame the beast. I took it on headboat a couple of times since then and that's where it got a scratch and dings. There's absolutely nothing functionally wrong with the reel that I am aware of. I have a smaller Saltiga (SASD15H) that I use on headboats now, so this bigger reel is only collecting dust. I couldn't find the manual, but it comes with a box and whatever you see in the picture. It's spooled with 50lb power pro with 50lb flourocarbon leader. I am selling this at $300 shipped. I accept Venmo, Paypal, Check, or BoA wire. I think the preferred method is Paypal on this forum for buyer/seller protection.
  15. Selling a Brand New never used Seigler SM star drag in red #305. Purchased, spooled with Jbraid 50# but never saw the outside of my house. Asking $350 shipped. Also for sale is a very good condition, 9/10 cosmetically, 10/10 mechanically Saltiga Z 4000H I recently purchased from a member here. Reel is buttery smooth, spooled with 45#, 100% made in Japan.

  20. I was wondering what rod you guy would use with a 3000 saltist back bay i was thinking a 8-14 pound test rod (usually labeled as medium light) but i know that the saltwater daiwa reels tend to be on the larger side so i'm just looking for some of your input
  21. Looking to trade a brand new Daiwa Millionaire 7HTMAGST for a Van Staal 200 or 250.
  22. I have a brand new In box, never used Daiwa Catalina 4000, current model. Butter smooth, built like a tank, using Daiwa latest and greatest technology, “ poor man’s saltiga “ will last for many seasons. $400 firm shipped to your doorstep or trade for 5000 size in similar condition.
  23. I am not too familiar with using braid but I just bought a Daiwa BG 4000 reel, which i heard casts best when using braid but the only braid I have is 50lb and 80lb. Are there any drawbacks with using heavier pound test braid?
  24. Girlfriend went ahead and ordered herself a new reel without talking to me about it first and endud up with something much bigger than she wanted. Anyone get a new BG 4000 or possibly 4500 that they then decided they wanted bigger? Let me know.
