Hahaha. Well, your guess is as good as mine!

Re: Metanium vs Chronarch

The Tackle tour review on the Met. MGL was incomplete and showed many details of the Chronarch not the Metanium they were testing... The lower gear ratio Chronarchs I have seen all had the shorter handle? knob bearings are one place I notice a difference, the levelwind I did not notice when I upgra...

I am not even really upset it didnt blow my things off, its still a great feeling reel, I just was shocked how much it feels like th...

Thank you!

I learned the hard way :lol: btw, quantum knobs and Daiwa knobs are interchangeable. I had a carbon handle from a Tour PT (with OG corks) on one of my Alphas reels at one time.


Again, thanks.

Re: Dialing in your Concept Z

My Concept Z 7.3:1 RH arrived yesterday (thank you Tacklewarehouse). I am going to spool it up with 50 lb braid, put it on a 7'3" fast action spinnerbait rod, and test cast it today off my dock. I have the brakes set at 1, and will adjust the cast control knob for a free fall with a 1/2 oz spin...

The sool pin is .307 long, the hole in the spool shaft is.0585. The shaft of the spool is .1878 diameter. The pin that goes into the spool is not taper...

Re: Removing handle knob screws

Could be some aggressive LocTite on the threads ... Daiwa uses LocTite on some of their handle knob screws, but it's the blue which is generally a medium strength ... I wonder if Quantum used green or god forbid red :shock: Daiwa use LT Red on their LRB screws - one of the dumbest ideas ever... Amen!

spool bearing pin removal tool

My friend asked me to change the bearings for some Gen 1 Abu Revo Premiers, but he says they have a pin holding the bearing on.
Is there a tool for removing and replacing those pins?

Re: Removing handle knob screws

The alloy shafts seem to loosen up and spin in the handles more than stainless steel - only require a knock to the knob itself and it degorms and then your at the stage your at "frustration". Ive had to punch quiet a few inc a Biomaster 10K which had loosened and needed the knob off - its...
