Re: Why don't people like Hot Sauce?

It dries up, gets gummy and loses lubricity over time. It attracts and holds solid particles. It stains the paint on most reels. Okay. Thanks. I've been using it for a long time, and, other than the red color, I've never noticed it getting gummy or dirty. I'll check my reels for that now. I used to...

Thanks guys for the feedback
I’m always playing around with this reel I nearly like it better than the OG zillion
I DO like it better than the OG Zillion. 1 oz lighter, plus all the different 34mm spool options makes it s superior reel imho.

Re: Coastal SV Review

Well I tried the reel today and have determined that jbraid grand is the worst braided line I have used, I'm going to academy tomorrow and get some different line. Spiderwire Stealth Smooth has been a pleasant surprise for me this season. It is very limp, quiet thru the guides and seems to be holdi...

Re: Weird incident with reel, but funny.

Both of the mentioned Daiwa braking problems have permanent solutions- a dot of epoxy for one, and replacement of a part with a design flaw on the other issue. Both of these problems were on random reels, and didnt happen to every reel with that braking system. The Shimano braking problems are recur...

Re: Weird incident with reel, but funny.

Yes, oil on the friction ring will do some weird things to a reel's casting performance. Shimano makes a great product, but this is yet another example of why I prefer mag braking.

Does the 803c fall into the category of finesse rod ?
The 802 could be termed a finesse stick, but the 803 has a good strong backbone. It may be ok for "power finesse", i.e. 1/4 oz and up.

Thank you to TT!!!

Got a package from Hoohoorjoo and I'm up and running.

Just replaced the aluminum Type R gears with brass, added ZPI Sic bearings, and freshly spooled 12 pound line on the r+ spool.

Looking forward to seeing what this spool can do.
Glad to help! 8-)

Re: Alphas SV 105 drag too tight?

Remove the handle and drag star. If the spool still won't spin freely, the reel might need service. I had a reel do that once. Apparently, it just needed to be cleaned and lubed. I think the a/r sleeve was somehow seized in the rollers and wouldn't slide out, because I initially had a hard time gett...

Re: Shimano Metanium mgl Brass Gears

Have any of you guys noticed the brass gears going rough a while after the swap? I did the swap maybe four months ago and they’ve already gone out Did u replace the pinion gear, too, or re-use the original Metanium pinion? I know from personal experience-you ALWAYS replace gears as a set. I learned...

Re: New Tatula Elite Reel

I've had every almost every version of the Tatula and have never had any of them make any type of clunk, thunk or any other noise. I had a Fuego CT that had a little in and out play in the handle, but it only moved or made a noise when I purposefully pulled out on it.
