Re: Bantam MGL

They've fixed it I believe to a greater extent.

I've donned all my baitcasters and some spin reels with the Antares knobs like what come standard on the Bantam MGL... So far they've held upto Inox oils which melted the older knobs in an instant.

Re: Bantam MGL

Those Technical L grips are good for smaller reels but be mindful that they're the offenders that go sticky in time when exposed to scent / bug spray / lube oil...

Re: Bantam MGL

A aluminium retaining plate as there is no access to the other side of the worm shaft to lock it into the frame.

I'm not sure what composite they are using.
Any chance of finding out or is it secret squirrel stuff? I'm just interested as the previous iterations of Stradic with the half alu half plastic always mentioned the XT7G plastic, this particular reel has been disregarded all together.

Stradic FL plastics

Hi Dan. Can you confirm that the body half on the new Stradic FL is XT7G* plastic or a revised lower end / Ci4 / non mentioned composite? IMG_20190915_081124.jpg Picture attached of the body half showing what seems to be some sort of fibre in the PA, but just no denotation of +GF? Thanks in advance.

Second hander, but unused. Just a very lucky break.

Absolutely our retail is ridiculously high in comparison...

Re: Shimano Stradic 19

I just bought one second hand Stradic FL, BNWB completely unused for a third of its price... Stripped it down and pictured the heck out of it for others. What can I say is that its quiet a bit parts heavy compared to the FK (if not similar to the Stella SW-B) but pretty well remade and better spec t...

Re: Shimano ch100 side plate stuck

Spray a penetrative spray in behind the spool, and back off the cast control right off to get a small gap, get it in there and allow to penetrate for a while... I snapped a Curado B key turn because the side access cam screw were slightly corroded into the frame, didn't use penetrative oil but Salt ...

Re: Curado 70 spool tension loosening on its own

The hardest part is getting the same OD, ID and thickness of the O Ring and also a chemically stable variety that won't swell with some greases and oils. I tried getting one for my 1979 Abu Ambassadeur 6500 C and my mate who works in a O Ring and seal supply shop had to send me a dozen of them and o...
