Reel modding has been completed. :D

Recommended Posts

My reels came in today, thought I'd share the pictures.  

This is what the JDM Pixy started life as:

Thats sweet man how much do those handles run. I just got a zillion and if I want to get ball bearing knobs. Do they sell those sepperate???

handles are not interchangeable on the US Zillion's.  You have to change out the arm as well.

Just beautiful my friend!  I should have done the same while I had mine apart.  Maybe I will now after seeing your's.  8-)

You can get the handles with bearings, as far as I know, they are only a seperate add on.

As RLR said, they don't go onto the non bearing Zillions. You need to either get an aftermarket crank that accepts bearing handles, or get a replacement factory handle that comes with bearings. The Steez will work and the "new" TD-Advantage153-HSTA handle is a direct replacement. Both have bearing handles.

RLR,

Does that Pixy have the older GIGAS spool, or have you swapped it out for the tuned one already??? Have you used both the GIGAS spool and the tuned spool??? Is there much of a difference???? Also, what it the line guide from??? A JDM reel or a domestic??? TIA for the info.

Looks good with the "new" handles and crank. 8-)
