shimming older tdx, tdz reel seets

broke out some older reels and switched rods around. I cant get the reels tight on a St Croix and a Falcon Expert. I remember a long time ago there were some home made remedies for this. Also if I remember correctly the Ito came with one. Don't really want to spend any money so what are your solutio...

older Daiwa spinning reels

I have a few older Daiwa spinning reels which I like but don't have the instant anti reverse like most of the newer reels. Maybe a crazy thought but is there a way to change them to instant anti reverse??? thanks john

Re: Looking for some ideas on organizing terminal tackle

Not hi tech or will not work depending on your set up but I use little prescription pill bottle for my small stuff. It seems like the plastic packaging that most of the terminal tackle comes in usually rips or is hard to open when your hands are wet and cold and want to blow away when it is windy. S...

Re: shipping reels

Whatever you do, dont ship that many reels via USPS. If something happens, they will just refuse to pay you because you can't prove what the items are worth, regardless of the amount of insurance you purchase. ouch, not what I wanted to hear. Not the most impressive list but I have a tdz, red pixy,...

shipping reels

Time to ship my reels out to be cleaned and upgraded. What shipping service do you use? Also how do you insure them? I have a few reels that I bought new and don't know if I should insure them for price I paid for them or what they are worth now. If you insure them for price paid will they even pay ...

Re: General Questions

Another set of "general" questions, just think it's nice to have a thread for multiple quick answers than create an entire one for a question. A few random questions are: How do the Abu BFS reels compare do Daiwa/Shimano? Has anyone ever used Daiwa Steez fluorocarbon line? Is anyone else crazy like...

Re: An ubelievable kick in the teeth

Another story.... It was a while ago but I used to hide my spare cash in my white ployester leisure suit (think John Trvolta). One day when I went to grab some money the suit was gone. My wife gave it to someone. Of course they denied there was money in it and my wife was pissed at me for hiding mon...

millionaire cvz 203la drag star

I usually back off on the drag on all my reels after fishing. Not all the way but just enough to have the line tight with the lure on the hook hanger. this morning when trying to tighten the drag the star wouldnt move one way or the other. Any ideas what would cause this? thanks john

Re: sticky inductor ??

yes 3d...the original t3 1016. I can pull the inductor straight. Was hoping for at least a temporay fix to get me thru the summer till I can send it to the tackle trap this winter. Seems like all my reels are starting to have little problems all of a sudden.thanks again
