Re: Shimano Curado 200/201DHSV - Handle length

The handle length was either 80 or 84mm on that model. The 300E handle will work and it is ambidextrous in design. The 300 handle is not 100mm in length. I think it is 90mm but I don't have one handy to measure at the moment.

Re: 07 Stella spool compatibility

They should interchange but I am not 100% about the drag knob. I know some of the shallow spool models had a slightly different drag curve and used a different knob. It should be the same but I cannot be 100% certain.

Re: Curado 301E, Will Tranx 301 Paddle Handle Question

Should've seen the Chronarch e5 I just sent away, the handle plate that sits above the drag star clicker plate had just turned to powder - this is what you got to watch for, especially in salt or brackish waters. But the use of a dielectric non corrosive compound used between dissimilar metals is w...

Re: Curado 301E, Will Tranx 301 Paddle Handle Question

Are they anodized? Raw aluminum will also be an issue in saltwater. The driveshaft is stainless and the handle is anodized aluminum. There are also different grades of aluminum. Some are better than others for corrosion reasons. If the reel is only going to be used in freshwater it shouldn't be an i...

Re: Curado 301E, Will Tranx 301 Paddle Handle Question

The drive shaft size on the Tranx is larger than the Curado. This means the handle will move slightly due to the larger opening int he handle shank. Yes it will fit technically, but the fitment is not correct and not advised.

Re: Scorpion DC17 101HG - Brake Noise?

It's hard to say exactly what happened but the DC software is programmed by the setting you select. If the DC unit is functioning as designed I would not worry about it. There really isn't any way you can damage it by having the dial between settings. It's possible you could have a bearing issue and...

Re: Question on CH100D7

It is a plastic type washer and typically it is in the frame side in the recess. This is why most people don't know that it is there. Also as with most washers and spacers they can be removed or added as needed to compensate for tolerances. This will adjust how tightly the side plate fits to the fra...

Typically I see white or blue on all of the DC units from testing. Even the older DC stuff from 2005.

Re: 2020 Virtual ICAST and new products

The reel is new tooling so I am not sure if parts will interchange.

The star and knob are green like the current Curado 200K model reels. Unless you're root beer is green, then yes it would be root beer colored to you.
