Re: Noisy Curado 201HG's

where you source the pinion bearing from? Most places are selling spool or knob bearings only. And one more question, will chronach 50E or citica 200e pinion fit to core 100 ? I am having issue with core 100 being rough on retrieve and gears looks to be in good shape, so I suspect pinon or AR bearin...

Re: Bantam MGL reviews?

how about advertised increased sensitivity of this reel due to solid body design?
Anyone feels it really helps to feel more, especially compared to magnesium reels?

hedghog ZR

Are hedghog ZR bearing considered to be an upgrade to Shimano stock? Or they are pretty much the same quality performance wise?

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Does this swept Met 13 handle fits without a problem with the original drag star or you needed any additional spacers? Thank you. Picked this little gem up this week. I've been searching for a nice shape D7 for a long time that wasn't 3 bills. Upgrades: CarbonTex Drag New Pinion and Drive Shaft Bear...

Re: Daiwa Zillion SV TW

Does it have brass gears or aluminum?Cant seem to find any info.. yes the zillion 1016sv does have brass gears, the only let down of the reel is not having a alloy sideplate and set plate. I don't see that as a negative. That's the main reason it's over an ounce lighter than the original. It's ever...

Re: G1 1012SV in an SS SV?

What type of line do you use with 1012SV spools? Will 16 lb fluorocarbon be too much?

Re: 2018 Curado DC (Merged Topic)

What is the spool weight in DC model? I see reports saying it is around 20 gm and it looks too heavy?
My primary focus would be 3/8 to 1/2 oz total weight for pitching plastic with 16-20 lb flouro, will I be better off getting regular Curado or Chronarch?

Re: Crooked NRX handle buttom

Thank you for the reply. Yes, the rod was brand new purchesed from reputable US online store, have a proof of purchase. Paid some hefty Canadian import tax :D To be honest, the whole blank has a slight curve as well and this handle bothers me the most. Both my GLX and IMX are purfect compared to it...

Crooked NRX handle buttom

Noticed my nrx 843 has crooked bottom part of the handle, see the pictures. It is not loose or anything, but significantly slanted.
Is this something G Loomis can address as part of their warranty considering this is the high end rod?
Thank you.

Re: Cousins

Nice!
Looks like handle fits without changing the original drag star?
