I have two daiwa black sheep reels, a 250 and a 300 and was looking at upgrading them. make them even cooler :)
I have already put in boca abec7 orange seals and changed out the drag for carbontex, but was wondering if anyone had any ideas for me or pics of what they have done?

thanks heaps

Re: Daiwa hrf

Turned out to be a slight excess of grease applied to the spring and kick lever

Cheers

Daiwa hrf

However, when it was fished, the reel would fail to kick into gear after every second or so cast. Not sure why this is happening, everything looks fine internall...

Re: New glx guides

Hi I use 80lb leader when chasing barramundi with large lures like the savage gear soft 4plays They normally get inhaled and the fish have very raspy mouths and sharp gill spikes that will slice through anything including your finger. They also tend to live in pretty snaggy areas, so its more for ab...

Re: Calcutta D or Lexa 300?

Calcutta for me, but I do like that style of reel

I'd pick up a curado 300e instead, love my shims :)

Re: If you could have only one reel...

I really do like the smaller size of the 200, though I still find the 400 very palmable

Re: If you could have only one reel...

I really think my new calcutta 200d has taken top spot, though I've only had a few casts with it in the backyard.

New glx guides

Hi folks I'll admit, I'm more of an avid reader than a poster, but I have to ask, the guides on the new loomis glx baitcast rods, are they smaller in diameter like the nrx, or more the size of the old version? Im only asking as I was going to purchase an nrx but was told the guides would be too smal...
