Re: Curado Being Discontinued??

I hope they do not discontinue the Chronarch E. It is a great platform, really a workhorse reel. I own many Curado Es and they perform very good for the higher impact techniques and fit the hand perfectly, for me and some others much bettr than the Tatula. I wanted to give a Tatula R a try for frogg...

Re: How many combos do you guys have

I have 21 reels but have many more rods. Depending on where Im going to fish, Ill set up combos depending on what Im likely to encounter.Very rarely do I end up taking all of them though.So I would say 20 give or take.

Re: best reel oil?

Yes,321 is very thick, that is why I always remove shields when using it so the leftover oil can be blown out since you dont get any benefit from the oil in it.Also makes cleaning easier.Once blown out they are very fast.With shielded bearings I agree the 301 is better because it gets under the shie...

Re: Curado Being Discontinued??

likely not cut. just being held off. i don't believe you'll see any hard core sales of the "g" anymore.... likely they have something new coming out. hopefully bringing back the quality we have all come to love. (even if that means $30-$40 more on the retail level) That's the most logical explanati...

Re: best reel oil?

TSI 301 is not compatable with plastics because it has a solvent mixed with it for cleaning, but the 321 is safe for plastics but it will not bond to plastic. This is the case with ceramics to because it won't bond to the ceramic balls. It does an excellent job protecting the stainless parts of a h...

I've been using it on most metal parts on my Chronarch Ci4+ with no problems. I think it is safe for sure.

Re: Polish this !

If its pitted badly it probably needs to be replaced. There is no way to fix pitting, but I don't think it will effect the performance if it is just minor pitting on the gear where it contacts the drag washer. Thanks for the info. I should probably replace at least a couple of the drive gears that ...

Re: best reel oil?

I'm going to flush my bearings on my chronarch and core and wanted an honest opinion about reel oil. Shimano recommends to use nothing but their oil line. Any one have experience with rocket fuel? I heard that's the best bearing oil. Not interested in hot sauce although I use it on my speed spools....

Re: I'm switching teams

I understand the complaints and I'm with you there, but venting these frustrations on the Daiwa support forum seems like the wrong place for it. This is for questions regarding Daiwa, not Shimano.

Re: G Loomis GLX - Jig/Worm + Frogs?

If you watch some of the Tackle Warehouse videos with Jared Lintner, he's using a new GLX for frogs in the slop. Don't remember which rod he was using, but take a look at the video archives...it was a fairly recent video. I believe it was the FPR 893. I would think the 894 would be better for the h...
