Re: Supertuning/Modifying your reels...

I have a couple OG Fuego casting reels I have been considering a tune up. Any suggestions to keep the budget low but soup these up a bit? Start with a complete disassemble/Clean and lube. Oil the bearings and grease the gears. Note all bushing sizes and replace with bearings. Including the knobs. S...

If you look at the picture where it shows Duraclutch, Im gonna say no. But what you are looking at says yes. Maybe they used a different reel for the clutch picture?
Look below dura clutch where is says pinion shaft support. The one after salt shield TM........

Abu with pinion support

Seen this when browsing. Seems Abu may have actual listened to some of the critics and added support to the pinion gear. :) Its only on the Revo black 10 from what I saw. Look down to the bottom of page. https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=ja&u=https://www.purefishing.jp/product/brand/ab...

Re: Tatula CT gear, interchangeable with larger/OG tatula and similar bodies

Don't mod the pinion gear. Add the zillion bearing and keep the pinion support. Use a liner from the zillion or make a brass ring for the pinion as I did here!.

Re: Thumb bar not resetting when cranking handle

Had a couple reels come in with after market drag washers installed. Seems some have the washer under the drive gear a bit too think. It allowed the kicker to miss the cog. Put the OG washer and they worked fine again. Just a suggestion. May not be your issue, But figured I'd pass it on. Some are cu...

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Which reels are the gen 4 and gen 3 spools compatible? I just found out the hard way that some gen 3 spools aren't compatible. The Deez IVCB spool for gen 3 Elite 7/8 does not fit the gen 3 MGX. Same diameter but the MGX spool is like 3 mil more narrow. 2011 gen 3s aren't compatable with 2013 gen 3...

Re: TD Z 7.1:1 RH gears

Pretty bad when 50% of the production run is total poop!! Gonna need to rethink the machining process! :oops: I chatted with the machinist and we think the pinion is getting deformed under the pressure during machining. Basically a deflection of the blank under the force of the tool...... :crying: I...

Re: TD Z 7.1:1 RH gears

Sorry I haven't been providing feedback. I'm afraid my set doesn't seem to be meshing well similar to LgMouthGambler's. They feel very tight and bind. I hadn't said anything yet as I was hoping I had just done something wrong in reassembly. I need to swap back in my original gear set and verify it ...

I dont know. Seems like they didnt mesh well.
Got them today, Looks like I have to point my finger at the machinist and do a better quality control before I ship these!! The pinion was machined on the wrong angle!! :x

Thanks for shipping them back!!
