Re: Japan Fishing Show 2020 Predictions

I say this every year for the last 5 or so years. I want a Z1016. That's it. Don't care about anything else since what's currently available is already perfectly fine. Give me a small Z made out of magnesium, without the twing, micro gears from the newer ryoga and charge whatever you want for it, i...

Re: Auction site gems

It has nothing to do with being a chicken $hit [-( It takes time, effort, and dedication to hunt down these items, especially oversees when you need to overcome the language barrier. Many more factors could be thrown in, but I'll just leave it at that. When putting in the leg work, only to get burn...

Not looking for cheap labor but not looking to buy a Honda reel and get the Bentley price tag for a Ford paint job. ( no offense to...

Re: Painting magnesium reel?????

Well the paint on the reel is bad and it’s heavily scratched so that’s why I want to repaint the whole thing. I was lookkng into someone doing it but I’ve had no luck finding someone who custom paints reel. I’ve read the guys that used to do it don’t do it anymore. Do you happen to know some one wh...

Re: Painting magnesium reel?????

If you're just trying to protect the magnesium from exposure from scratches and boat rash, try using clear nail polish, or a closely matching colored nail polish to restore the protective coating. If you want to do it for a cosmetic reason, like to change the reel's color, you run a big risk of maki...

Which bushing are you looking to change out? I can give you sizes and part numbers if you specify which ones you are looking to change.
Thanks.
I'll check, and get back to you.

Yes.
Do you have a source for them, and sizes?
Honestly, I keep all the usual bearings in stock, and just change them out according to my reel purchase, or whatever my customer wants at the time. :lol: driveshaft is usually a 5x9x3, pinion 8x12x3.5, spools 3x10x4
Thanks.
