Re: TSI 321 on centrifugal brake drums?

Could you post a photo? I am curious to know what area(s) you are speaking of regarding oiling? I have a bunch of VBS reels and one Curado 50 is noisy on the cast

Re: Good jerkbait that’s better than a 110 or pointer?

Lots of good jerkbaits on the market. The MB 110 and LC pointer are great. Have you tried the slender pointer (long slender profile) or the pointer 78? Both are little smaller in profile and seem to work great in cold water when fish are keying in on smaller prey. The IMA stick is a nice jerkbait th...

Bumblebee themed? Like the yellow Pixy or TDZ PO.

Re: Supertuning/Modifying your reels...

I always fish any new or pre owned purchased reel as is or stock, the way it came. I want to see what it is like and if I am happy with it in its current state. If something seems off I see what can be done to alter that. Sometimes, a handle, spool, spool bearings, a cleaning, bearing flush, or have...

Can someone please super tune my Shishamo ? It has 16 bearings and I swear one of them is making noise.
Better send that one to Bill Nye the Science Guy. ;) :lol:

Re: List of reel tuners

Here are some that I have used in no particular order, note none are bad but they each have their plusses and minuses. 1. Dan Issacs - ReelEx - All he did for years was Shimano but now he is working on other reels. He offers the quickest turnaround and if I am not mistaken supertuning/polishing is i...

Re: Fishing ole classics

I love new and classic reels. The more simplistic maintenance of older more bulletproof reels is nice for someone like me that doesn't want to monkey around with reels with the DC system and more complex insides like a Conquest.

Re: Service for a Conquest 51 DC?

Spanky at the Trap

Dan Issac at ReelEx

Trey at TH Custom and Reel tuning

Ian Shields -EBassfisher on the forum here

All do great work and are familiar with JDM reels. Only differences may be turn around time in some cases.
