Re: Chronarch MGL clicking sound

I know people see the gears meshing randomly but as you can appreciate every 4th rotation on a 5.0:1 ratio the gears come back to the same point, high gear reels are more rotations from memory and reliant on ratio. I always run on the rule of 'mark them and they go back in at the same point'. May no...

Re: Chronarch MGL clicking sound

Always mark your gears and reinstall at the same point.

Definable 'tick' sound at a certain point of rotation or a rattling kind of 'tickty tick, tickty tick et al' when thumb on the spool and winding...

Re: Curado e Revision series info

All of that was the same.

Only definable change that I could find was mentioned prior with the drag pressure plate from stainless steel to aluminium...

Curado e Revision series info

Anyone know the difference between the Curado 200 e5 Revision 1 and Revision 2? Ive opened up too many to count now and I've noticed the stamping inside the gear plate REV 1 or 2 and the LH access locking plate where R1 & R2 are stamped... But what we're the fundamental changes or improvements made?...

Always hold the spool or better again wrap the line around a gloved hand...

Without doubt its transfer of energy straight to that point where the pinion meets the main gears and something has to give...

Re: BNT4631-Idle gear pin

Those idler gear pins are on so many reels now it's not funny...

Otherwise that part off the I is common with the new K & DC...

Re: STci4+2500FA Knob

The lower part of the plastic is squard off so you can find a spanner to fit which'll hold it... Best to use a small coin than a screwdriver on the cap as its got less chance of marking the red anodised surface. I've glued the EVA foam of those knobs to the plastic shafts, of those that I do for oth...

Re: Reels Over Rated Or Under Rated

I was hoping to see more out of the DC actually ($450 AUD)... Quiet over braked for casting 5 / 8 grams... Even on setting #1 its no longer than a simple cast than with the K and both are setup exactly the same... Im keeping it within regards to use but there is certainly more effort in the casting ...

Re: What to do about chipped paint?

I go around hawking the nail polish racks and discount bins for applicable colours, trying to get exact colours can be difficult but I'd rather a sealed finish than one that will allow corrosion to get under - dont forget the acids off your hands etc... Otherwise go to your local paint shop that doe...

Re: Tatula CT/SV bearing retainer

I managed to melt a ridge into my CT when I owned it and put a OEM wire retainer.

Bit fiddley but worked well.
