Re: G1 Duralumin Drive Gear

Plenty of Doyo made reels going strong that had Duralumin gears in them. I service quite a few to this day.

Re: What's next for Shimano???

I am patiently waiting on an update to the Core series. The 100 MG7 and 50 MG7 were a couple of my all time favorites. I would be a fan of them following what daiwa has done with the Steez. Give us magnesium and aluminum options for the Core. Brass gearing in both with 6,7,8 ratios. I would also li...

Re: Older Shimano Bantam Scorpion 2000, any info?

The roller clutch, or anti reverse bearing, would be sitting in the sideplate where the crankshaft comes through. The crankshaft is what the handle is fastened to. If no bearing, than you may have just the cog system.

Re: Older Shimano Bantam Scorpion 2000, any info?

If you can find one of those black and silver Bantams (very hard to find), go ahead and purchase one. It will be good to have for the parts under the crank side plate, which should all swap out. Yes, the brakes are different, but thats no big deal. As a matter of fact, you may even be able to swap a...

Re: Daiwa Fuego Ct or Shimano SLX

Would you care to share what you did with the fuego ct? How do you think it will hold up in Saltwater, with of course the proper maintenance afterwards. It's very exciting to me that something in the $60 range can be tweaked and upgraded. I like doing tweaks. Complete tear down, and relube to my li...

Re: Daiwa Fuego Ct or Shimano SLX

Well, Ive had the Fuego CT, and was able to turn it into a killer smooth and casting machine. I just got the deal I was looking for on a SLX, and should be here by the end of the week. I am going to see what I can do to it internally to unleash whatever beast (or Gerbil) is inside. :lol: I can tell ...

Re: Older Shimano Bantam Scorpion 2000, any info?

You are wrong, because the reel it coincides with is 100% compatible. Which is the Black and Silver Bantam Curado. Here, let me help you out since you have trouble with comprehension: Ah i see. That is good to know. Sadly it just has the regular spool. So the parts for the curado 200b is interchang...

Re: Older Shimano Bantam Scorpion 2000, any info?

I have never seen a curado with a flippin' switch though I have been told the first curado did have a flippin switch. Once again, you are wrong. The reel this coincides with is the Black and Silver Bantam Curado, which had a flipping switch. Wrong again? About what? The OP reel also coincides with ...

Re: Older Shimano Bantam Scorpion 2000, any info?

Ah i see. That is good to know. Sadly it just has the regular spool. So the parts for the curado 200b is interchangeable, in terms of upgrades? I want to change the handle for sure. I'll All parts should swap out between the 2 reels. If it fits the Curado, it will fit the Scorpion. Post a pic of th...
