Re: New bearings for my Concept C, advise needed

Robert, Honestly I love this question....this is exactly why we have options. Your choice completely depends on your environment and what you want to get out of your reel regarding performance. Changing your spool bearings(position 1+2) to Hybrid Ceramic will give you major league cast-ability.....a...

Re: Concept C Question

I highly suggest you send this reel in to be serviced. You can hit up our website for instructions to send it in.(support tab) Your thumb bar should never snap "engaged" on a cast...most likely you have the actuator spring out of place and its not seated correctly in the frame hole its designed to b...

Re: ICAST 2019

The new construction process does not affect the durability of the rod blank. If your talking in relationship to "breaking" a rod it will be determined by the rod design and quality as all other rods are. However in regard to the seat....when its "Fused" it becomes ONE. So you no longer will have is...

Re: ICAST 2019

YES! The carbon seat AND the handle become Fused together as one piece. YES! By not using adhesive and a multi component build sensitivity is dramatically increased.(it IS measurable...more later on this from 13 Fishing) *Are the reel seat and the blank are made of the same carbon material? - Compli...

Re: ICAST 2019

An expansion of this tech in more models and configurations is definitely in the future. Our Director of development for Rods(Ricky Teschendorf) tells me this is just the beginning. The limited run was designed to launch the technology. I can tell by your comments you are already thinking about all ...

Re: ICAST 2019

Fuses look interesting. Any word on retailers? Due to the Limited Run on first production, I would assume most of our more "elite" level supportive dealers will order a few each. Smaller dealers will most likely special order as customers request them. Very likely we will sell out this first produc...

Looking forward to seeing more on the Fuse Carbon, a new handle construction method sounds interesting!
More on FUSE Carbon launching shortly... You MUST feel these rods, the sensitivity is mind blowing. The best way our testers have described the feel is "electric".

Re: New brass gears for my Concept A

Hi Guys! I bought a Left handed Concept A two years ago on a trip to the states (I live in Sweden) and now the reel needs a gear change... (my own fault, can't blame the reel... dropped the gear during maintenance and chipped a cog) Is it possible to buy new brass gears and get them shipped to Swed...

Re: Concept Z lubrication

Matt, Do I need to oil the Z bushings, and, if so, how often? How often should I grease the gears? Thanks in advance, Mark P.S. I hope you are having a nice holiday season. The Z Bearings will break themselves in and after that they should require very little lubrication. I use INOX lubrication on ...

Re: Origin C Handle

Very sorry, I haven't checked this forum in way too long. Hope you reached out to customer service for the answers....but if not, The Origin C weighs 7.3oz. All the 13 Fishing Trick Shop Handles fit the Origin C. You have quite a few choices, colors, and styles.

Re: Concept Z anti-reverse bushing?

Over the years I have had this question thousands of time. Use a grease that is sticky/tacky for your gears, this is important....you want something that will stay on the gear when it is turned. Many Brands will work well, if you go to service your reel a few months from now and the grease isn't whe...

Re: Concept Z anti-reverse bushing?

So still it is technically a no BALL bearing reel. I figured it always had the standard style AR bearing, unless it had a very precise dog tooth system, but that would still offer slight back play. Handled another one of these reels not long ago, felt pretty smooth and tighter tolerances than I ori...
