Revo3 Winch 5.4:1

Looking to change the 5.3:1 gear set in a Revo3 Winch to something faster. Are there any faster gear sets that will fit in the Revo 3 Winch? I know this is counter productive, but it's not my reel.Something like the gear set of the Gen3 STX-HS? Would probably have to go with washers, I would just ha...

A CNC would be great if I had access to one.

Re: custom drag washers

That's what I do. I use a combination of scissors, Exacto knife, drill and drill bit, and a jewelers file to finish off. I buy Carbontex by the sheets in various thicknesses.

Re: An awesome short fishing video my buddies done

Thanks for the kind words. It is a teaser, and working on something much bigger.

Re: Pixy 101

What spools will fit the Daiwa Pixy PX68 SPR? And where could I find spare spools?

Re: When the clutch engages in the middle of a cast

Just had this on a customers reel. I noticed significant wear on the pinion gear, and damage to the spool pin. I ended up replacing the spool pin, pinion gear, and main gear and no more issues. There was no damage to the main gear, but I always suggest replacing both gears at the same time for fitti...

Re: Best oil for spool bearings for saltwater use

Been using TSI 321 for more than a year now, I fish fresh and salt with great results from protection. Before I started using it and would service reels, I would have corrosion in some of the AR bearings, Pinion Bearings, and handle bearings, not any that I recall in spool bearings and after using T...

I've been using TSI321 on my reels for more than a year now and on customers reels for about 8 months, and have had no issues.

Re: Hedgehog replacement air bearings

Does anyone know what the replacement bearing would be for a 1150 air bearing in their air kit? If so would the 1130 replacement air bearing fit in the same housing? I just got the T3 Air that I want to replace the bearings in but I want the ceramic bearings instead of the standard Air BFS bearing....

Re: majorcraft volkey 69xul

I ordered one for my wife, and one for myself last week. Her Pixy will be going on her's, I will have an Aldebaran BFS XG Ltd on mine when it comes in. Thinking about putting my Core 51 on it in the meantime.

How long does it usually take to come in from across the big pond?

Re: Pro angler 14 or predator XL

I've seen a lot of good Harbor Freight built trailers. I think that would be ok for local fishing, but I wouldn't push it on long trips.

Re: Pro angler 14 or predator XL

I know the Yakima Rack and Roll isn't for everyone, and I didn't think it was for me at first. I bought a cheapish new trailer for around $750, and then added another $500+ in modifications (metal fenders, tounge extension, LED waterproof lights, longer heavier axel, bigger hubs, went from an 8" tir...

Re: Pro angler 14 or predator XL

I started roof racking the Pro Angler on a full size 4wd Chevy Silverado this ended shortly. We roof racked because we had 2 Pro Anglers and both wouldn't fit in the bed of the truck with the fiberglass tonneau cover. We went to a trailer almost 5 years ago and haven't looked back.
