Re: Does Shimano say to grease or oil replacement felt drags?

We use ACE 0 for spinning reel felt drag washers. It is essentially an oily version of our regular ACE 2 drag grease. Most of the time the washers do not need to be replaced if there is no physical damage to them. This typically consists of the washers shredding apart which rarely happens on reels u...

It's not that difficult to replace. The first one might be a little tricky, but if you have basic mechanical abilities you can figure it out pretty quickly.

Re: Noisy Curado 201HG's

That part of the country is the only place I see rust on freshwater reels. It always seems to be from the reels being left outside in the elements and in the rod lockers. The algae plugged water helps trap moisture on the reels as well.

Re: Shimano Aldebaran 50MGL Spool question.

You would have to change the brake pipe as well. The braking systems are slightly different.

Re: Calais dc brass gears?

Calais and Calais DC gears will not interchange. The drive gear is aluminum and to my knowledge there are no other drive gears that will fit. I tried a few and none were correct.

Re: Calcutta Help

There is no X-Ship or Super Free on the Calcutta B or GTB models. There are 2 bearings for the spool, 1 on the spool, anti reverse bearing, 4 in the handle (GT only). The 200/201B model does not have bearings in the handle.

Re: CL-201A Drive gear

You can try Southwestern Parts & Service in Texas and Coastline Service in North Carolina. I suggest replacing the pinion gear as well. Gears wear together and should always be replaced as a set. http://fish.shimano.com/content/fish/northamerica/us/en/homepage/Shimano-Authorized-Service-Centers....

Re: Metanium mgl squeal.

I suspect its the bearing on the spool. These are oil filled bearings and typically the one that will become noisy.

Re: Noisy Curado 201HG's

If you are only using the reel in freshwater there is no need to do anything more than wipe it out with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol.

Re: Noisy Curado 201HG's

The ultra sonic is the way to go, but most people do not have one or access to one. I do not suggest taking apart the roller bearings that we use in some of the newer reels like the Metanium. In reality we don't suggest taking any of them apart.
