Re: Hedgehog Air BFS Bearings

Thanks, I've oiled them and yes they still are noisy on casts. But it's good to know it's normal.

Hedgehog Air BFS Bearings

I've been using these bearings with my megabass IS BFS spool and they have been noisy on casts. Are these supposed to be noisy on casts or quite? I'm not used to it and am not sure if that's how they're supposed to be. Any help will be appreciated it, thanks.

I swapped bearings and it still felt the same. Unfortunately I don't have a spare spool for this reel. Took the reel out yesterday and it performed fine. It just isn't that smooth anymore.

Re: Help reel feels grindy

Going to take the reel out and see how it performs, I don't see anything wrong with it so I don't really know what to do anymore since there really aren't many spare parts.

Re: Help reel feels grindy

I was going to change all the bearings because I have extras, but was busy today. I'll try some more things tonight and update you all. Could it be the gears?? I cleaned them off and they look nice, no chips or marks of wear and tear.

Re: Help reel feels grindy

When I free spool it with the clutch bar down I can hear a little bit of noise, but when I reel that's when I can really hear it and feel it. I don't like to set my cast control on too high I always have it to where it has a little side to side play. But I've tried it loose and tight it still feels ...

Help reel feels grindy

Ok so I have this old daiwa viento and it wasn't really feeling smooth anymore so I decided to crack it open and give it a fresh clean and re grease and lube. After I put it back together it felt great cranking w/o the spool in. But, right after I plugged in the spool and sideplate the reel just fel...

Re: crucial 7mh crankbait rod

Being that this rod has a faster tip than an avg crank rod, would you say that it also would work with jerkbaits and topwater? Seems like a more versatile rod with the little faster tip?

Re: crucial 7mh crankbait rod

I believe he has the most recent EVA grip models. I never felt this rod before but he's giving me a pretty good deal and I'm in need of a new crank rod, so I'm considering it.

Re: Broken G Loomis Rod

Easy way to tell if its bent or broken, is to just look down the guides, they should all line up.

What are your thoughts on this rod? My buddy has one lying around that he is willing to sell me for less than $100. Only thing is he's out of state so I can't fish it first... Your experiences would be greatly appreciated.

Re: ultimate heavy pitching reel

I'm surprised I don't own one zillion reel yet. I've been on these forums just reading good things about zillions, but never picked one up. I think it has to do with the fact that I start out with light reels and the zillions weight turned me off. There's been times when I almost clicked the buy bu...
