Re: JDM Metanium issue

You can send the reel directly to us for repair since this is a global model.

Re: Chronarch MGL New issue

You can change the grease to our Permalub and this will keep it from freezing and be adequate for the bearing to protect it.

Re: Chronarch MGL New issue

There is a light grease in the anti reverse bearing. It can freeze in cold temps and cause it to slip. We have a different grease for cold temps, but it does not provide as much protection against water intrusion. There is no way to adjust the clutch on the low profile reels. There could be some cor...

Re: metanium mgl and chronarch mgl gear interchangeability

The CU K pinion gear will not work in the MET MGL. You can use the main gear but you need to use the MET pinion gear. You also have to change to the drag washer from the CU K because of the difference in the internal dimension is slightly different.

Re: Calais 200asv

Parts are very limited for this model. I basically have gears and bearings. Everything else is discontinued/no longer available. If there is any corrosion then we cannot repair the reel due to the typical damage associated with corrosion on the Calais.

Re: New Antares MGL

The Bantam has a bearing above the roller bearing and of course one on the bottom of the driveshaft.

Re: 03 or 09 Conquest DC to Non-DC Conversion?

It cannot be done. The brake hub threads into the frame on the non DC models. The DC models are machined fiferent to hold the DC and they use screws to hold it in place.

Re: 03 or 09 Conquest DC to Non-DC Conversion?

The dimensions are slightly different. You could remove the hub from the spool that the DC acts against to slow the spool.

Re: New Antares MGL

The side plate design does not have the correct sizing for the bearing. The '13 Metanium uses a bushing in place of the bearing with a longer inner tube for the anti reverse. You would not really gain much by trying to add a bearing to the Metanium. With the Curado there simply isn't enough room for...

Re: G Loomis Build Quality

That is 100% false. There are videos out there of the factory. I have been to the factory several times. Trust me the rods are built by G.Loomis at their factory with exception of the Conquest blank. Those are made by one of our Shimano factories. I just love the disinformation being provided with z...

Re: Stella 2500 FE Knob Replacement

You have to crush the bearing and the inner race with a bench mounted vice. That way you can get the bearing off and clean the post. It has to be done carefully so you do not oval the post.

Re: Stella 2500 FE Knob Replacement

Slazmo- I know I could get that bearing off and replace it. I have secret techniques. R2- The shims are used to adjust for tolerances in the molded knob. Sometimes they do not require one, sometimes they are placed at the lowest point, sometimes at the top. You just have to play with it and I'm sure...

Re: Stella 2500 FE Knob Replacement

The bearings are replaceable. If the bearings are stuck on the handle shaft then it is probably due to corrosion.

Re: Stella 2500 FE Knob Replacement

The engineer responded that the other knobs should work. You may just need to adjust the shims that may or may not be under one of the bearings. I was mistaken with the knob change issue. This was on an older model. Now the posts are the same dimensions for 1000-4000 size Stella handles.
