    Shimano Forum gone away?

    Yup. Sad. Ali said something like they decided to spend the money elsewhere. Spoke to someone at Shimano that said Bantum went to SC to set up the new east coast service center. A great loss either way.

    Maxel Hybrid 20

    For what it's worth, I fished Nantucket fluke this year with a lot of very fishy guys from New York and Jersey. Hands down the two most popular reels were Saltiga's and Trinidad/Ocea jiggers. Only one Maxell and it had been sent in twice, replaced once, and the nut holding the handle arm broke...

    New 2018 Shimano Reels

    Any chance the Torium 4.6 gears will fit the Trini a reels? I never understood why they won't sell the Ocean 5.1 gears here. Seems easier than trying to get a low gear Trini to the US market.

    Shimano Game Type J question

    If I remember correctly, this series had 4 conventional models. I believe they discontinued the lightest one. If so does anyone know the model number? I think it might have been B602 but can't find any info on it. Thank you Matt

    Question for Bantam 1

    Not at all. Just want to make sure no damage will occur to the reel if using the BFS 80 cam. Thanks

    Question for Bantam 1

    On the Torsa series reels, will the BFS 80 cam work on the Torsa 20? I read somewhere that the 20 will only take a BFS 50 and that the BFS 80 is only for the Torsa 40. Can you confirm this? Thank you Matt

    i've used a 4' Alumaglow light. A little bit more expensive, but the best construction i've seen on any light.

    Daiwa Saltiga Help

    Thank You. Called them today, and they really didn't understand what I wanted to do. Finally came back with "parts aren't interchangeable". Don't really think anyone tried it.

    I'm looking for some help on a new Daiwa Saltiga SASD15 reel. I love everything about the reel except the spool lock. I miss the clicker. So I noticed the 20-30 size have the clicker, and am trying to find out if i can convert the spool lock to a clicker using the 20-30 parts? Any advise would...

    Shimano Handles

    This all started because I picked up a Torsa 20. It"s probably the most perfect reel I've ever felt. The handle being longer got me thinking. Also love the rubber knobs on my Tiagra 50-130's. So I wanted to get a Tac 50 handle for the 25 and bump it down the line. I won't do any changes if I...

    Shimano Handles

    Thanks, figured that , but was hoping someone has done the same. Don't want to buy 3-4 handles and find out they don't fit. Looked up Torsa handles and saw different prices and figured someone might know a 20 Torsa fits a 16 trini but you'll need a 30 torsa for a 20 trini etc. I was looking at...

    Shimano Handles

    New to BD and have a question about Shimano handles. I have an assortment of Trinidads,Talicas,and a Torsa. I like the length of the Torsa handle the best. I'm wondering if I can put a Talica 25 handle on a Talc 8 and replace the 25 handle with Talica 50 handle? Also wondering if a Torsa handle...
