I really think it is just about money, not product. For the right money I would certainly change brands, of underwear or almost anything else.
Let's not go to far! It's hard to fish with a wedgie :D

BNT1514 would be the main gear part number for the lefty.
Bantam1,
Southwesternparts says that BNT1514 is no longer avaiable.
Do you have another source?

Re: CH MG 50 upgrades

Did they make a CU 101DVS? One of my MG50's is a left handed model.

Re: CH MG 50 upgrades

Mark, the original CH50Mg main gear is aluminum. And hoohoo is correct about the cu100D vs. Dsv. I asked on the shimano page and that is what Dan said. So from my understanding, if you plan on using heavy line, or techniques with lots of torque/drag pressure, a brass gear addition will definitely h...

Re: CH MG 50 upgrades

I believe the Curado 100DSV had brass gears but as Riley stated the pinion gear is no longer available (BNT2405) but the main drive gear is abundant (BNT1325). Here’s a useful link for Shimano parts, they have Daiwa parts as well but not as plentiful... https://www.southwesternparts.com Correct, th...

Re: CH MG 50 upgrades

I read on a post here some time back that although the pinion gear has been discontinued and unavailable for a long time, the main gear for the CU100/CH50mg/CU100D reels can still be found. Although best practice is to replace as a set, I have seen many CH50Mgs with broken teeth on their aluminum m...

I’ll probably just take my chances and give it a shot.
Just keep them in their original bags, keep them separate from regular plastisol baits, and you'll be fine.
Repeat.

Re: Weight Transfer System Stuck

You can try gap filling super glue. Put a dab onto the hole, smooth it with your finger, and use accelerant to set it. Or use some Devcon 2 Ton epoxy. They should both hold up to the salt.

Re: CH MG 50 upgrades

I have four MG50 reels that I don't fish anymore because I'm afraid they won't hold up to the fishing I do now. Is there some way to beef them up? The Curado 100B and 100D gears fit, and are thicker across the face of the gear teeth. Not sure on availability of those parts, though. Just dont fish t...

Re: Balancing a Great Rod

You can use rubber chair legs with lead sinkers inside, fit over the rod butt, and taped on with black electrical tape.
I actually fish with my rods balanced like that, but you can also have a rod repair guy open up the butt and insert the balancing weight into the rod, and the reinstall the butt cap.

Re: New Tatula Elite Reel

Both of my Alphas SVs make a clacking noise when turning the handle with no load on the spool. It is really off putting when playing with the reels in hand but once on the water they are silent. I've never ventured to see what it is but it is internal and coming from within the handle side plate. I...

Re: New Antares

I'm going to purchase this reel next month; my first shimano since the mg50. I don't mind a loaded bat...I feel I get better hook sets with a 7-8oz reel, and my already lightweight rods feel like they want to 'pop a wheelie' with a meatier reel. Speaking of the mg50; nobody griped about the fact it...
