Re: New 2019 Stella SW

The line roller is always an issue with the spinning reels. The engineers have been working with many designs for a few years now before finally getting it right with the SW. I hope to see this design trickle down to other models in the future.

Re: New Antares MGL

The sales are just too low for left hand models in the US, especially in Antares.

Re: New 2019 Stella SW

The 8000 size now has a smaller rotor. This means the spools will not interchange between the 8000, 10000 and 14000 sizes. The 8000 size reel is for braided line only. It is not designed for use with mono line. Infinity Drive is a friction reducing design for the spool shaft. This eliminates the spo...

Re: Aldebaran MGL

Aldebaran MGL was launched at ICAST last year. The only place it says MGL is on the cast control knob. The color changed as well.

Re: Calcutta Help

The Calcutta is a very durable reel. If he plans to use this for cranking, spinnerbaits, small swimbaits, etc he will not be disappointed. The first Calcutta models came around 1991-92. There hasn't been many changes to the design over the years. I think it is a very proven product. The only negativ...

Re: metanium mgl and chronarch mgl gear interchangeability

I suggest sending in the reel for service. If the reel is still within the one year warranty period you can request the reel be evaluated for warranty repair.

Re: Does Shimano say to grease or oil replacement felt drags?

We use ACE 0 for spinning reel felt drag washers. It is essentially an oily version of our regular ACE 2 drag grease. Most of the time the washers do not need to be replaced if there is no physical damage to them. This typically consists of the washers shredding apart which rarely happens on reels u...

It's not that difficult to replace. The first one might be a little tricky, but if you have basic mechanical abilities you can figure it out pretty quickly.

Re: Noisy Curado 201HG's

That part of the country is the only place I see rust on freshwater reels. It always seems to be from the reels being left outside in the elements and in the rod lockers. The algae plugged water helps trap moisture on the reels as well.
