Re: Recent Stella Service ...

No worries. I'll pass your appreciation to the tech. He's been really busy lately so good words always help.

Re: SLX and Curado DC spool Sizes

We will not have a booth at any major event this month. I doubt there will be anyone there with the new Metanium since they have not started shipping to dealers yet. We are trying to minimize the potential for exposure to the Coronavirus. They do not want us flying anywhere or attending events with ...

Re: 17 Stile SS Question

I have zero info on this reel model or what spools will work. I can only help you with US/North America products. At times if the models are close enough to our versions I can assist with info. Unfortunately I do not know anything about the Stile model reels.

Re: gear meshing

There is no reason to mark or index the gears on conventional reels. Even with our newer spinning reels you do not have to do it (cold forged gears). Gear wear is simply gear wear. Aluminum drive gears are harder than the brass alloy gears. Even though we used a specialized harder brass material for...

Re: Help from Bamtam, or Anyone

The internet is full of experts. YouTube has several experts too. I cringe at some gear reviews I watch knowing that a lot of what is said is incorrect.

Re: Bantam1 gear question

Not always. For example a drive gear could have 55 teeth and the pinion will have 9. This gives you a 6.2:1 gear ratio.

Get the edge of the screwdriver under a corner and simply pop the cap upward. The force needed isn't that high.

Re: Oval Shimano handle knob cap removal?

I use a small jewelers type flat head to pop them off. Same one I have been using for years to remove most of the pop in type caps on our handle knobs.
