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?

Re: Spool tension

Both round and square spacers are in place.
I guess I try put the original gears back and see if it makes a difference, although doesn't make sense.

Re: Spool tension

The cast control knob should not be your default for adjusting the casting on your reel. I suspect there are dimples in the spacers from previous heavy tension. Remove the spacers under the cast control knob and left side plate bearing. Flip them over and reinstall. Use your brakes for the majority...

Re: Spool tension

looks like spool is centered, and seem like casting is ok too, but it is so difficult to adjust spool tension, I doubt I can even have enough tension for heavier lures if I need to.

Re: Spool tension

Do yo mean the square carbon type one under the cast control knob, I think Simano calls it "spool tension spacer"? I have this one, this is the fist thing I checked.
Thanks.

Spool tension

After changing the gears on scorpion 1000xt to core 50 aluminum 7:1 gears noticed spool tension knob needs to be tighten all the way down to have any pressure to be applied on spool shaft and I am not really able to adjust tension with the same level of control as before. I thought I have lost a spo...

Can someone with experience fishing these 842 and 852 glx side by side please provide comments on how much different are they in action? Also very interested to hear input about sensitivity between the two.
