Re: New grease suggestions

My life's been a whirlwind of buying a house, marriage, child arrival, selling my old faithful Suzuki Sierra and buying another ASX and work, crappy weather (either drought & no water / downpour rains and flooding), servicing and home DIY work also... Ive applied the Tef-Gel to my Curado K MM gears ...

Re: 2020 Zodias rod with carbon monocoque grip

Good to see that they've finally used the K guides. Hope they're the frosted guides as the high polished stainless rusted in the salt like the Terez's. Also does anyone know if they've updated the handle and the issue of the wind down hood - few issues where it would separate from the threaded reel ...

Re: Spinning Reel Drag tuning

Lap the stainless steel top washer, and the aluminium ones you can't but you should check them for any deformation... You can find stainless steel washers for them which I find a better suit than the aluminium especially when using carbon fibre washers over the stock felt. Also the washers, being fe...

Re: Bone Stock Reels

Found another Golden Egg (left with green line) in a slightly soiled state and plan to use it as it is, a good ultrasonic clean and rebuild and she shall remain bog stock... I planned for the last 8 months to find another regardless of its state to use - and just so happens that one turned up in an ...

All the Tatula T Wings I replaced under warranty were strictly from braid use.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Evergreen Opus-1 Nero.

Re: Basszone handle knobs

Put the bent side of the washer closest to the face of the bearing also, never the two up turned edges. And you can use them in ways such as ") (" and to really space things out, if you do need to place the open side towards the bearing face use a thin shim to cover the bearing so that it'll allow t...

Re: Scorpion MGL

Really makes me wonder what people are doing to their reels to cause this. I use nothing but 50 sized reels in the salt and catch plenty of big fish(jacks, striper, redfish) and never have an issue with my gear. My Stiles are based on Curado 70, with brass gears from a 70, and they have been bullet...

Re: Screeching Zillion HD

I guess that's dependent on how many gorilla's you put into the cast.

I had 2 Z200H's with loose inductors, they made funny noises but casting wasn't all that affected other than the noise.

If you can't get another replacement, go see a chrome plater and get it electroplated again.
