Re: Would you be interested in reel with DC brakes if they didn't "whine"?

I thought the whine was cool when i first got the OG exsence DC, and probably fine around other gear enthusiasts. But at other times, ie most of the time, the whine is like normal whining... annoying.

Don't plan to get another dc with the whine.

Re: 21 Antares DC Main Gear

My thought is that the smoothness of micro module gears doesn't last long when the frame and bearings can't hold a tight enough tolerance. Like too much play. Surprised it's an issue for the antares though.

Re: Unsanded blank finish... hmmm

Yeah ok. Feel like if I'm bombing heavy things, not an isaue. But light lures on a windy day with micro guides, with more line slap potential, not sure. No way to know for sure.

Unsanded blank finish... hmmm

What are people's thoughts on these unsanded blank finishes, like the mini ridges between each carbon wrap?
It's always smooth running your fingers back from the tip to butt, but rough as sandpaper the other way. Affects casting distance?
Feel like it either needs a sand down or a blank finish.

Re: My SV Boost reels, so far...

For me, the boost spring feels like it has been most helpful in taming the big rpm spike at the start of the cast so there is less chance of a backlash, and any cast is longer than a backlash :lol: . Helps with taming the initial fluff in the absence of a well trained thumb. Still feels a little cho...

Re: Metanium MGL 16 problem

Lube got into the inside 'hole' of the pinion gear? Does the long spool shaft look like it's got grease on it?

Re: Shimano Stadic Bail, doesn't fully close

I haven’t bothered to ever disassemble any bit of the rotor apart from cleaning or changing the line roller, but it wouldn’t be any overnighted screws at the pivots?

30000 rpm, so 500 revs per second.

Re: Vibration analysis between '20 Met and '21 Zillion

Love it!

Would you say both reels have had about the same amount of use/ potential for line slap if spooled/ etc.?
I'm still getting a Metanium for the MGL spool haha.
