Re: Concept Z lubrication

Matt, Do I need to oil the Z bushings, and, if so, how often? How often should I grease the gears? Thanks in advance, Mark P.S. I hope you are having a nice holiday season. The Z Bearings will break themselves in and after that they should require very little lubrication. I use INOX lubrication on ...

Re: Add flash to a hardbait

Try looking here: http://www.tackleunderground.com/community/topic/35244-hilite-coating/ Looks great man! Those violet hues have always worked well for me in our Wisconsin waters. 8-) It is easy to do. Just keep adding coats, dried in between, until you get the effect you want. I thought about addi...

Re: Drag question

What if you install a washer between the A/R collar and the top metal drag washer? I ordered some washers from the Quantum parts site to do that. Thanks. I had to do something similar to get a Zaion star on an SS SV. I got an extra one of those washers with the textured coating on one side and butt...

Re: hook set on senko

Try snelling your hooks to see if it help. You won't lose anything, and you may find that you hook more fish, because the hook cams up out of the bait and into the fish's mouth with just the slightest pressure. Does that really help? I don't know if I buy the whole snelling/cam action thing. As soo...

Re: Drag question

I wouldnt do that. If those carbon washers are together like that, they will usually damage each other very quickly. Thanks. That's what I thought might happen. I found some washers for that reel that should work on the Zebco parts site. They are only $.14 each, so I'll order some and see if they w...

Drag question

I posted this in the Reels Forum, and then realized that it's probably better posted here. I changed my Quantum Smoke Burner aluminum main gear to brass, and the gear face that the drag washer lays against/engages is a little thinner. I need to find a .5mm washer to take up the distance. Is there a ...

Drag question

I changed my Quantum Smoke Burner aluminum main gear to brass, and the gear face that the drag washer lays against/engages is a little thinner. I need to find a .5mm washer to take up the distance. Is there a site that offers sst washers for reels? The original drag washer is 1.45mm thick. Can I jus...

Re: hook set on senko

I usually like to feel the weight of the fish before I set the hook. That's how I fish everything practically. I tend to use larger hooks to help keep them from swallowing it. Sometimes you can tell by the way they hit it whether you can go for a hook set or not, but there's no harm in reeling up s...

Re: Bearing size

I need to know the pinion (the pinion sits in) and “drive?” bearing (located on the outside of the anti reverse bearing) bearing size for the Diawa Tatula CT 100HS, I’ve upgraded to ceramics for the spool bearings but not sure the size of these 2 bearings. Since the spool bearings are the only bear...

Maybe the spool pin is too close to the face of the spool.

Re: C clip removal tool

I use a bitty precision flat blade screw driver. Place the little blade in one of the slots and twist.. bingo. that works! Also could use a larger size sewing needle...pointed end or loop end. Most importantly, put part of your other hand next to the clip so you can grab it before it flies away, to...

Add flash to a hardbait

For those of you who build and/or paint crankbaits, this is something I just tried, and it worked. I added some of my soft plastic violet hilite to some Createx transparent base, and shot it over a jerkbait repaint with my .035 Iwata airbrush. It shot perfectly, and, through multiple coats, I was ab...
