Re: Cerakote

I was quoted here in Aust $400 to redo my Calais DC... If there was a cheaper option (with the same benefits) I would do it without hesitation its the best coating option out imho.

Re: Using ultrasonic unit to apply lubricant

Well you'd definitely get it into every nook and cranny - just wondering how the ultrasonics would go in a more viscous medium even if by just that much... So for this applicable process would be - wash out, dry, ultrasonics application of oil, removal and dry off excess oil. How much benefit would ...

Re: Roller clutch issues?

Just because you PM'd me your recommendation doesn't mean squat, your ignoring and being ignorant to the fact that you've overlooked a large bit of information in all relevance... Just because it works for me in my particular situation doesn't mean I'm going forth and creating a cancer of misinforma...

Recommended by whom. Pretty sure we've all got our ways that work, even mysteriously without ever "gumming up". Synthetic 00 NLGI greases aren't like your clay based wheel bearing greases of yesteryear.

Re: '19 Scorpion MGL 150

The Curado K has a clip, so does the DC all other K's I've done have been clips.

Or are we talking something else for example the retainer plate for the handle shaft?

Re: Roller clutch issues?

Only one that's failed on me was out of that rattty Calais DC, was a tiny bit rusty and a bit noisy. But I replaced it and viola back in business. I think most don't lubricate them enough, they're still bearings and they're taking some force especially those that I see over there hook setting like s...

Re: '19 Scorpion MGL 150

Yeh the Bantam was that way. These cheaper lines of reels won't have that feature just yet. It'll filter down eventually in coming years / decade maybe?

Much easier than the e / c clip in every way.

Re: Scorpion DC 100 Brakes stopped working

And some of the larger overhead reels came with DC too. We'll here in Australia for throwing off the stones as they say... I picked that Calais of mine up for $25 and rebuilt it... Safe to say for other than it looking like a roo hit by a road train, it's a favourite that'll never leave... Posted th...

Re: Scorpion DC 100 Brakes stopped working

At least Bantam identified the problem with possible solution.

Here it's like... "not sure how it work's, it's like magic or sumthi'n,"

Love my Calais DC, that system is totally above and beyond expectations.

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Playing around with the K and DC to normalise the colour scheme's.

I think it works out a bit better?

Also wearing Antares knobs (also the DC now)
