Got the new Jackall Revoltage RVⅡ-C71H-ST with TORAYCA T1100G and Torayca M40X, has a solid tip the tip is not soft at all and should be a excellent bottom contact rod, I paired it with a new JDM STEEZ A II.

JDM Tackle Heaven has them listed at $219-241, though I've seen aa little lower/higher on other sites. The exchange rate has been very good to JDM tackle enthusiasts lately!

I just ordered the RVⅡ-C66M+, really looking forward to fishing this rod. If it works out I'll probably look at the 68MH as well

Mature audience warning - round reel porn ahead.  😉

This is a used Isuzu BC720SSS (5500C size) almost off my bench, scored on Yahoo, with a compliment of brass trim parts from Bright River, and NS Craft handle.

@GreenPig

hi friend - that's a line/hook keeper - it rocks to pinch the line, and has a hook notch.  It was on the reel I bought in Yahoo auction, though it was installed backwards.  Here's where the reel above began.  It was a good Yahoo snipe, used reel, scratched spindle caps, no box, wrong aftermarket handle - everything that would turn off a Japan buyer.

Upgraded my big bait reel arsenal recently to the Calcutta Conquest 400 MD's.  I really like the bigger handles and paddles and they're smoother than the 2018 models I had previously!

Amazing lineup. What line do you have on ? 20 pound mono or Floro?

Found this locally today on a buy/sell site similar to Craigslist to add to my 'classic' TD-X collection. It's a TD-X 105HiA that looks like it was only taken out of the box to spool up (with some really thin braid which I've already taken off). There's no signs of wear/use anywhere on it at all and the spool spins forever after a I put a couple of drops of Hoppe's 9 oil on the bearings.  

 

He was asking $250 for it (Canadian, so ~US$180) and I very quickly talked him down to half of that which works out to ~US$90 - and he delivered it to me for no additional fee.

 

My plan is to replace the main, pinion and worm shaft gears and drop it down from 6.3:1 to  5.1:1 and use my brand new 20+ year old reel for crankbaits.

You mean clean like this...?  Knowing how fragile the finish on these reels is, I've just always made a point to be sure they sit reel up on the deck because as we all know, boat carpet is like sandpaper.

What is it that you like about these TD-X reels?

They fit my hand really well and run beautifully, casting long and they're super smooth. I have 9 TD-X 103HVA and the TD-X 105HiA I just found.

Last night's build.  I wanted to keep this one as factory appearing as I could.  This reel has a frame, star wheel, handle, and spool cap from Simon Shimomura.  Even the frame is the correct date code for the side plates, 040005 designating this a 2500C IAR manufactured in 1994.  The handle and star wheel are also year correct for this reel.  Under the hood we have a Valleyhill 2BB cog wheel, Valleyhill 2BB level wind, Avail line guide, Avail 2540R spool, Avail driveshaft and click wheel, and Hedgehog Air bearings.  I kept the factory 5.3:1 gear ratio for this one since it will be used more for lake fishing than my usual streams.  The rod it's going on is a 5'4" 4-8lb progressive E-glass from Shane Gray of Graywolf rods.  It has been too cold to fish these last few days so I probably won't have it out until later next week to get it dialed in.
