Re: Ultrasonic cleaner recommendation.

I have this guy ... I purchased it 4/5 years ago. I have cleaned a many of reels for myself and loaned it out to a friend a couple of times with no issues what so ever. The heater is a nice feature when cleaning bearings and grease from gears. It will get hot enough to not be able to stick your hand...

Re: Chronach G

Now posting info that someone "shared" with you knowing it has not been made public is not something I consider to be OK. I guess leaking info is the cool thing to do these days . Yes it upsets me because I used to be on the product side. I know how serious we take keeping info secure. When someone...

Re: Shimano 2017 Icast rumor mill ...

Bucket... If y'all are in the industry I can respect why your "not allowed " to say anything and the fan club comment was out of line. The reason I quoted y'all was for all the teasing comments with no info ! :lol: The rumor mill thread was created for people to share info or leaks in good TT fun li...

Re: Shimano 2017 Icast rumor mill ...

It's not a budget reel, no. But even without knowing price, I will say that this reel is definitely in the wheelhouse for a large demographic on this site 8-) I cannot believe more info hasn't leaked... seems tighter than last year's, maybe just more surprises this year. EPIC Our sources of info ar...

Re: Chronach G

Then you might not wanna open this thread up. :lol: http://www.tackletour.net/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=75208 No need to stir :lol: I'll clarify here ... Apparently its " OK " when Shimano post inaccurate info on their website on bearing count, side plate material, main gear material/design, or the use ...

Re: Chronach G

I don't know where you got the presentation from, but please stop posting info. The info you have received is not for public sharing. You didn't even post the correct specs for the reel. The Chronarch G has a CI4+ frame material and side plates. It's just a screen shot I received from a friend. It ...
