How are BB1’s so smooth w/o bearing supported pinion gear?

I don’t personally own one but have cleaned numerous of these now. Serious question,they are always soooo smooth and I just can’t figure it out given that they do not have a bearing on EITHER end of the pinion, compounded by the fact that they are almost exclusively used for baits with tons of resis...

Re: ICAST-2015

I wish that the bubba american bass fisherman would realize he doesn't need 120 yards of 12 pound test to catch a little green fish that does not run, so that the manufacturers would stop building the reels that way.

Re: CI200??

I am assuming you are referring to the "B" generation of reels. If so, the complete Curado spool will work fine in a Citica, but to replace the bushing on the Citica spool, you will need the narrower 3mm bearing. The difference is the shoulder on the two spools. The reel frames are the same. Never u...

Re: Curad I

So I walk into the local Dick's Sporting Goods today, and heres how the conversation goes with the lodge guy. Me: "You get any of the new Curados in yet?" Him: He looks up at the gun wall, ponders a second, and says, "No, a lot of the new guns haven't come in yet" Me: "The Shimano Curado reel. Its a...

Re: Curad I

When retail sporting goods companies pay the same or less as McDonald's, just how knowledgable do you expect their staff to be? Even department managers are making peanuts.

Re: Lefty Curado I availability?

Yeah I'm more pissed than a teenager showing up to Foot Locker to get the new "Jordans", and there are none to be had. Lol. But seriously, why all the advertisement of Feb. 21st, if they knew Lefties weren't going to be avail at all, and righties in extremely low quantities. All I can remember readi...

Re: Who Got their Curado I?

Every online place I have checked has none, and if you call them, they say they didn't even get any. I really don't see why they put such emphasis on a release date if the reels were not going to be avail to buy. I too would be very interested if anyone was actually able to purchase one on Friday so...
