Re: gear meshing

Not that I've counted but I've noticed by the indexing lines I do, is that the pinion rotates 4 times to every one main gear rotation on a 5.0:1 ratio or there about reel (I don't do high speed reels). While the science may not be here with unequivocally proven fact that it does help in maintaining...

Re: gear meshing

Indexing used gear sets during maintenance certainly won't hurt anything. John, For baitcasters, unless the number of teeth in the pinion gear are divisible into the number of teeth in the main gear by a whole number, so that the pinion teeth encounter the same sets of main gear teeth on every revo...

Re: gear meshing

Wasn't that more to do with the aluminium being more tensile and less dense than brass in which it transmits the vibration through the handle shaft more... All I kbow is I hate Aluminium on Brass / Bronze alloy pinion gears... I'd live with the added weight and much more for brass or whatever alloy...

Re: gear meshing

I have also never indexed my gears when I work on them, but I read here that some do, and that's why I asked the question. Since I found a brass 7/1 main gear for my favorite reels, they are so smooth I forget how annoying that aluminum gear grind was, until I pick up another reel that still has an ...

gear meshing

Would giving the pinion gear or the main gear an odd number of teeth even out the wear on both pinion and main gear (so they don't "seat"), and make them smoother? Would it let gears be replaced more easily, without having to index mark them?

Bantam1 gear question

Do all main gears and pinion gears have even numbers of teeth?

Re: Budget Sweet Spot... Casting Reels

I like how poor people who can't afford high end gear always say ;"your 600$ rod won't catch you more fish than my 40$ ugly stick uhuhuhuhuh". But it does catch more fish.I can feel so many more bites that I couldnt detect when I was poor and fishing with cheap rods.You get what you pay for.A 600$ ...

Also, there is no line that is verified by the IGFA as meeting their requirements. The line is verified after the catch as part of the record qualification process, as it has always been.
Are any lines closer to their actual pound test rating than others?

Are there any fishing lines that are approved by the IGFA for their reported strengths?

Re: Broken vision 110

Yeah; it’s a whole lot of overconfidence on my part combined with super short memory of previous failure. I saw you flash under that dock. Hell; I can make that cast! Sounds like you were there! :lol: Funny, you'd think that concrete platform would have learned to move after it had been hit half a ...

Re: cardiff

BNT3369 I know they are on back order currently but some of our service centers might have them. I would try Thorne Bros in Minnesota since they tend to carry those for the Muskie market. Another place to try is Southwestern Parts & Service in Dallas. I'm sure you can find them on places like Ebay ...

Re: Broken vision 110

They do mention if you hit on rocks or docks that its not a warranty claim but if it falls off during a regular retrieve or easily comes off just send it in. Id just be honest and see what they come back with. They are great to deal with Makes sense. No replacements for me. Mine did not fall off wi...
