A couple of years ago, I purchased a like new TD Sol. 6.3:1 gears had been installed in it  and  I not only love the faster gears, but the smoothness of that reel over my other Sols. My question is; Who offers gears for Daiwa reels? I’ve done bearing and drag washer upgrades on many of my Daiwas along with adding swept star drags and carbon fiber handles to a number of my queens, but gear swaps weren’t offered by the companies I dealt with.

They'd be gears from daiwa from another model. I'd have to look into it to see what would fit. I wouldn't be surprised if someone that's done it chimes in.

You can install pixy type r 6:8:1 gears in the Alphas/sol platform, or you can also install the Alphas sv 7:2:1 gears in it. Tackle Trap in Alabama carries all types of Daiwa parts. They’re your one stop shop for anything you would need.

The tackle trap offers gear sets for some daiwa models.

I have the 68 gears from the pixy in my sol and i also run a 7.2.  The parts can be ordered from plat and they have really good prices.  I shop there all the time and they have other things i order like cork knobs a lot cheaper than other places.  I think i corks for daiwa are like 16 bucks there and if added to another order there is no additional shipping.  You can also get the aluminum gears from the ITO if your heart desires to make the reel liter.

If i remember correctly you also want to swap the line guide worm gear to speed it up so you get a better wrap.  It is also liter
