WTB: OG Daiwa Zillion leftie project, any gear ratio, no spool or handle necessary

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a project OG Zillion lefite, any gear ratio, any aesthetic condition so long as it functions as it should. It doesn't even need to come with a spool or handle. I want to put together a budget frogging/pitching/flipping reel and will be upgrading the gears, hence the gear ratio not being an issue. I'm open to J-Dreams, Limiteds, and of course the regular run of the mill versions. Let me know what you have, the rougher the better. Feel free to email me at adam.lancia @ gmail . com

Thanks in advance!

 

EDIT: I picked up a white pearl painted Zillion for a song (6.3 gear ratio I believe) which is great, except that it's a rightie. I don't know if the reel has been used since the repaint but the paint job looks pretty good. There is a small 1/4" long hair or bristle in the paint on the gear side plate but other than that it looks good. It came with a TD-Z drag star and a straight 90mm carbon handle (which looks to have had it's edges resealed). I'm waiting on a few parts to complete it but should have it together by Saturday. I have gone through and cleaned it up and reoiled/greased it, including replacing the drag washers with carbontex. The only parts I won't have for it are the rash guards in the top of the frame. I'll add pictures to the comments here. I'd be happy to trade this for a leftie Zillion, preferably a 7.1 gear ratio, but like I said above, spool and handle aren't necessary. If you'd like to buy it, I would like $100 for it.

If you want to know what you missed out on, tackle warehouse had the zillion tws for 143 shipped during their Black Friday sale. Now it's $180, still a good deal

Agreed, however, I'm not a fan of the frame size/shape and I didn't want a new reel. I'm looking for a winter project (or 3) because I love to tinker.

That's a good base for what you want to do and use it for. Tank of a reel.

OG Zillion is a superior reel in most every spec than the TWS.
