Re: Exsence dc 17 dc sound gone

Bit painful to listen to those bearings hahaha. I like to take the spool out and let everything air dry after fishing salt. Feels like it's a bit of a usability fail with the way the DC unit is held to the frame with 3 screws, compared to the quick release ones in the past/on some current models. Pr...

That's the problem... i can't find it anywhere and I have no idea what it was called. It was a ghost pattern with a kind of peach colored top... not orange, not brown, but in between.. peach. 🤷‍♂️

I had an Exist Lt that was a little raspy. Didn't like it, sold it.

Re: Exsence dc 17 dc sound gone

I'm not educated in the electrical side of things, but i guess it's just like a reverse electric motor. Instead of an electrical current used to power shaft rotation in a motor, the reel spool shaft (and the magnet) rotates within coils generating a current in the coils. I assume the current in the ...

Re: Exsence dc 17 dc sound gone

The warnings on the newer gen DCs are mostly around not putting any force on the coil.

Arrow points to the optical sensor.
Also comes with a warning not to get any oil around the sensor.
I'm not sure the new DC units use the same setup though for measuring spool RPMs

Re: Exsence dc 17 dc sound gone

Haha, sending any reel to Daiwa/Shimano AU service department is a gamble haha.
Half the time it comes back worse.

Re: Exsence dc 17 dc sound gone

I would love a DC where the you could turn off the whine or make it very faint. Bit distracting or annoying esp in quiet areas.

Re: Morethan 1000xh - Coffee Grinder

The note (about repair only) has been the case for a fair while now.
But check with Plat, they seem to be able to order/supply gear sets despite that note...

And it's not 13000.
It's 6500 for the drive and pinion gear set.
