Re: Line stacking up on one side.

Do you have the line threaded correctly through the reel? The line needs to go under the bar on the hood not above it. If I remember correctly if the line is above the bar, it will spool to one side.

I like the T3B and 1016 at the price you can get them for. I would not fork out 500

Re: Scored a M St. Croix Rage 6'10 casting rod cheap what re

The Rage's are nice rods. I have 3, 2 casting and 1 spinning. I have the RC7'2MM that I have paired with an EXO 5:3:1. Great great combo for 1.5 squarebills and rattle baits to 5/8 I have the RC71MHXF for bottom contact baits. Beast of a rod but not super sensitive I also have the RS610MXF paired wi...

Might be too late but HP bearings are good guys to deal with. Good SS bearings. I use them in a few of my reels and no problems with them

Re: New Curado 70

^ Only if you let it get to the point to where it is telling you it is time to oil... I have to clean and oil the drum 2 times in a day of fishing on 2 reels. I have cleaned both reels, flushed the bearings and replaced the bearings in 1 of the reels. Maybe my friend and I got defective reels. We b...

Re: New Curado 70

All this noise is simple in my mind: SVS is higher performance and higher maintenance than the older VBS. I really don't understand all the fuss though because it takes less than 45 seconds to do the 'maintenance' suggested in the owner's manual of these reels. :shock: https://www.youtube.com/watch...

Re: New Curado 70

Looks like a fantastic reel. Though if it makes that same squealing noise on the cast that the 200i makes, I won't be owning any of them. If they fix that noise issue, I may own 5 of these. Justin Read the directions and you won't have the problem. still happens if you follow the directions. This i...

Re: Best Performing 2500-size Spinning Reel Under $200

If you can find a Abu Garcia Soron STX (20 size) grab it. A true beast. I've had mine for 5ish years and not 1 problem. It still feels just as good now as day 1.
I don't know why Abu stopped making this reel.

Re: new curado 1 on the way , brake setting help?

Be careful when you open your reel that you do not spin the cover around, which could hit and chip the finish on the main body. It isn't all that delicate, but those complaining about chipped paint on the main body have usually done it themselves by swinging the cover around. I recommend that you a...

Re: new curado 1 on the way , brake setting help?

I use the same weight lures and i keep 2 brake shoes on and the dial on 3. Then i usually never have to add anymore brake shoes. I will adjust the dial for lure weight and wind. Normally the adjustments are down to 2 or up to 4. The curado I isnt a reel that backlashes easy
