Hard to believe it's been ~ 25 years since the iconic and many times under appreciated TDX-HSDF made its debut.

Still one of my favorite reels and this one stays in my arsenal due to it have a special history in my life.

Yeppers for sure...it's very evident every time I service this reel and I compare the internals with later generation Daiwas.  FWIW, the thumb bar assembly on this TDX HSDF is as solid and rigid as any I have ever felt, Daiwa, Shimano, or any brand.

My old tournament partner still rocks a couple of these. Upgrade the drag, keep ‘em clean internally and they perform just as well as most newer offerings. That thing looks sweet, brother…she’s a beauty. 🫡🤘🏼

Added the TDZ Gigas from the 103ML I got from Aaron and changed out the the handle and knobs again.  Any 103/105 TDZ Gigas spool performs so well on the TDX HSDF due to the smaller gold spool bearing.  FWIW, if the TDZ and Steez 34 mm had an option for a smaller spool bearing like the TDZ, it would provide for an even faster, freer casting spool.
