Re: Stren Super Braid

I have a box. It touts: "Only Stren Super Braid features Advanced Microbond Technology. This exclusive AMT compact construction results in a smooth, round, small diameter braid,,,," There is no mention of what it is made of, so I assume it's Dyneema subjected to some kind of treatment (co...

That is my memory, too, but it's been soooo long, I can't be sure.

Stren Super Braid

Fifteen years ago+- I bought some Stren Super Braid, when it first came out, because it was supposed to stay round. It did, and even though it lost most of it's green color pretty quickly, it has stayed strong and soft feeling for all these years. While I cut off 6" when I retie, I haven't had ...

Their Veritas casting rods are great for the price, too.

Re: Roller Clucth Sleeve??

If you bought it new, contact Shimano, or return it for warranty repairs.
If it was used, contact the Tackle Trap to get it repaired. Or give them a call, and ask their reel guy how to do it.

Re: chronarch MG 50 swept handles

The drag star on the MG 50 is plastic, so it will break if I try to bend it. I had a tip break off of one before, so that's how I know.
I'm thinking sanding is the way to go.

Re: chronarch MG 50 swept handles

PM DavidSA. I believe he added Metanium XG handles to his Ch 50mg’s. Ive installed on Cu 50e and 200e, Alde 50mg, Core 100 and haven’t had any issues with these swept handle swaps not clearing the drag star. Drag star barely touches handle, but not enough to scratch paint, and is still fully adjust...

Re: TUTORIAL - Non-SV Spool convert to SV Spool

Dredging up an old thread here. I made this modification to 2 J-Dream spools and MAN what a difference! I'm definitely going to hunt down the correct size drill bit (what's the exact shaft size...?) and try it on a couple TD-Z and Steez spools. Thanks for this! There used to be bits called reaming ...

Thanks for the reply.
I'll keep them for my fluoro setups, and open water.

chronarch MG 50

I have several old Chronarch MG 50 baitcasters. They are some of my favorite reels.
I have a two part question.
Will they hold up if I fish them with heavier line, like braid, and, if not, is there something I can do to upgrade them so that they will hold up?
