Will a 8k shimano fit the reel seat of a trevala s?

    Sorry, I meant the trevala S series of rods

    Which Trevala S model rod are you looking at? And then which 8000 size reel?
  • Jetex2801Jetex2801 Posts: 540 Officer
    the MH or M model with either a Stradic or Saragosa

    It will fit, but it won't balance that rod out very well.

    It will fit but you would be better off with a 5000 size reel. The S type jigs are made to fish shallower with smaller reels.

    Thank you, just wanted to know, I've been catching monsters on it and sometimes it feels like my 4000 stradic is being over stressed.

    A Quantum Boca 70 won't fit on a Trevala...found out the hard way.

    Even if it would have fit you would needed to feed the rod a steady amount of anti rejection pills similar to how the body needs them if you had a heart transplant...

    So has anybody modified their larger reels to fit the seat of the trevala s? I heard grinding down the reel works. I wanted to do that to my new boca but didnt want to take the risk incase it doenst work.
    If I dont answer my phone call, either Im fishing or riding my motorcycle. -Salty Bike Life

    I would not suggest removing material from the reel. This will weaken the foot and that is the only thing holding your reel on the rod.
