Re: Scorpion MGL

Really makes me wonder what people are doing to their reels to cause this. I use nothing but 50 sized reels in the salt and catch plenty of big fish(jacks, striper, redfish) and never have an issue with my gear. My Stiles are based on Curado 70, with brass gears from a 70, and they have been bullet...

Re: Screeching Zillion HD

I guess that's dependent on how many gorilla's you put into the cast.

I had 2 Z200H's with loose inductors, they made funny noises but casting wasn't all that affected other than the noise.

If you can't get another replacement, go see a chrome plater and get it electroplated again.

Re: Daiwa Reel Issue

That's the problem with factory reels. They come dry, so water gets in and the unsuspecting user goes on for a time happy with life with corrosion going away at its business between two dissimilar metal surfaces. Always best to have a light coat of lanolin / oil or light grease between mating surfac...

Re: BANTMGL151XG spool removal

Take the side plate off hold the exposed spool end down wards and with both index fingers slowly coax the spool downward carefully not to drop it on any hard surface, it'll sort of pop / click free... It's because of the rubber O ring in the silent tune bearing sticking / grabbing inside its bearing...

Re: Braided line bad for your rods and reels?

Some messy knots when cast in an over spirited manner can dislodge guide inserts...

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

The only thing I could see that they'd do to increase the thickness of the pinion gear is to reduce the shaft that traverses it from the spool friction knob?

Unless they're making it from a unobtanium alloy that's stronger than before?
