poisonokie: Feedback Request Topic

I placed a WTB add for a specific rod I was after and poisonokie hit me up right away with one. He made me a square deal, shipped quickly and packaged it with great care!

Cast Control Cap for Curado K

Does anyone know for certain what other model reels I could use the cast control/spool tension cap from to swap on the Curado K? I want to get rid of the gold trim one that came on it and put a black or gunmetal on there. I have some from the US ’13 metanium which fit, but don’t seem to screw down f...

Daiwa Zillion HD Cast Control Cap

Anyone know where I can get a cast control knob for the zillion HD in either black or red or black/red? Hedgehog is sold out. That awful orangeish gold one is killing this reel for me! Or maybe someone knows of another model that would fit that I could find one from? Thanks! 499171B9-63DB-4693-93BD-...

Shimano Curado 100B/101B Drag Rating

Does anyone here know what the 100B Curado reels were rated for on the drag? I have the box and papers that came with mine and it’s not listed on there. I’ve tried a quick search on the web and nothing…. Just curious if anyone might know.
Thanks!
