Re: Drag slipping in cold weather

Yeah, if your anti-reverse still works, then I think it has to be the drag assembly. Either water between the surfaces, or maybe the drag washer frozen stuck with the main gear.

Re: Weight Transfer System Stuck

If you're prepared to drill, just drill a hole with the smallest bit you have underneath the stuck ball and just push it free with the bit or needle. Epoxy the hole afterwards. Would be pretty inconspicuous.

Re: Weight Transfer System Stuck

Re: Too much oil on SVS breaks??

I would not put oil on my brakes unless they are too noisy to take. I don't own an SVS braked reel, but many Shimano reels of the past were famous for the brake systems making a lot of noise, yet being scary when oiled.

Re: Too much oil on SVS breaks??

Re: Daiwa Bearing Issues

I think if the number of ticks/bumps matches the gear ratio, it's usually the pinion.
(just guessing, not from experience).

Bearing is 8 ID x 12 OD x 3.5 THK
