Re: Tenkara

Tenkara is the smart way for little streams, for bass you are limited to the distance achievable, but it should be very nice fishing with little bass.
Not Expensive is relative, you could spread some bucks or a whole capital, as any other fishing technique.

Re: Lost clicking spring on drag star on Scorpion 1000

You can use the curado 100d or chronarch 50 mg , or other spring even for new models, that pins are almost the same.
use grease and not glue, glue will affect functio of click and is difficult to remove , grease is a better idea.

Re: Curado 100D - ticking

Re: Curado 100d Gear Grindy

I had the same on a Scorpion 1001 ( same chassis than 100D) replacing the main gear and pinion has solved the issue, but I think this is due to the lack of metal sideplate, so during use the grafite let the gear having some jokes and them will became noisy )
curado 100d has black main gear.

Re: 100D spool vs. 100DSV spool.

hello, for removing this screw you need to remove the non handle shell , by removing the nut of the sideplate shaft,just under the levelwind.

take a look at this link

Re: Bearings in New Curado G Series Reels

The Curado G has 4+1 bearings. Bearing count is important if the bearings are in places that make sense. The bearing quality is also important. I have seen reels with several bearings that sell for a low cost. The bearing quality is very poor and the bearings are in places that simply offer no bene...
