Re: Backing drag down all the way...Shimano

#1 is definitely normal.
#2 I imagine thats possible but I think you might just be tinkering with the reel in a way its not designed to be.

Re: Steez Ltd

One of the best looking reels ever made. I had one when they were in production and regretfully I sold it.

Re: My experience buying rods using Buyee BEWARE

Im confused. Why are you guys doing this type of service rather than having the OG seller ship in a rod tube using ems/usps??

Re: What's your favorite Daiwa Steez model?

For the techniques stated, I usually go for more reels that would be known or classified as "workhorses". Curados/Scorpions, chronarchs ect. I had a steez sv ltd amd it was very nice, almost too nice especially considering the $$ they pull now. The paint job amd accents on the ltd is one o...

Re: Presso AGS 60L-B

Very nice. I had a alphas air but sold before ever using it. It is truly a tiny reel. I used to think the Alphas and Pixies were small until I used the 16 Aldebaran BFS XG. I recently got an Alphas Air and I thought it felt huge. Its got to be the best bang for your buck finesse reel. Super smooth ...

Re: The Search for One: The 13 Fishing Archangel

Completely agree about the cork/eva combo. One of the primary reason ALX never got any of my money.

Re: Better start with 2016 Shimano Ci4+ Stradic

Well I received the 2016 Ci4+ back from Shimano service on Friday and it is not much better than when I sent it in, you can tell it has been greased it is stiff cranking now but... it still has the knocking and that odd tightening up while reeling, I spooled it up and was planning to hit the water ...

Re: Shimano Scorpion?

Not really sure what your asking about having other reels, im not a dealer and am not currently parting with any reels. As far as the smoothness I would expect a but more refinement from a met I suspect our Russian friend is asking if the scorpion 70's retrieve compares to other shimanos you own. O...

Re: Best spinning reel under $100

Whatever the most shimano you can get for the 100 bucks would be my vote. If you do your homework you should end up with a nice reel for your money

Re: Shimano Scorpion?

I have had the xt1000, and have 2 of the 70s. The xt is a phenomenal reel in every way. The new 70s have to be the best looking scorpion to date. The finish is outstanding, with a red fleck in black paint. Only thing I would have done different is the same idea but with different colors. The black a...
