Re: Bassbandit : Feedback Request Topic

Just bought a Shimano Curado 200e7 from Chris. The reel was packaged securely and marked "Fragile, please handle with care". The reel was practically brand new. I exchanged a few emails with Chris over some of his gear and after talking with him, you just know he's an honest guy. I didn't even see p...

Re: Daiwa Tatula SV spool bearing access

How would you put a drop of oil on your spool bearing during regular maintenance? Take the side plate off everything time you want to put a drop of oil on it? Just under do the cast control friction cap, that gives you direct access to the bearing. After the first service pop the outer facing shiel...

Okay, thank you, that seems pretty inconvenient, no wonder my Daiwa friends prefer the free floating spool.

Daiwa Tatula SV spool bearing access

Hey guys, I just picked up a Daiwa Tatula sv casting reel. I own mostly Shimano reels, not much experience with Daiwa. Anyway, I wanted to remove the spool bearings, clean them, and lightly oil them. My question is, to get the bearing out of the handle sideplate, do I have to remove the sideplate? I...

[quote="mrpao"]What kind of braking system does this reel have ?[/quote

It has the same braking as the Brenious does, like 8 internal pins.

Re: Shimano 17 STILE SS 150HG opinions and feedback wanted

I purchased one from Japan Tackle earlier this year. It makes a good reel for high resistance baits. Not sure if I am gonna to keep it yet. The lack of external brake adjustment annoys me a little. Other than that it is really smooth despite the lower bearing count and casts well. The handle is 105...

Shimano 17 STILE SS 150HG opinions and feedback wanted

Hey guys,

I'm looking at this reel, if any of you guys have it can you give me some feedback of it? Looks like a curado/scorpion 70 size reel with a lot more line capacity.

Thanks in advance,

Christian

Re: Shimano Zodias 2 piece casting rods......Info please!

You can find the MS-X 662m for around 230 bucks. This would make a good all around rod if it isn't too short. Great blank, Fuji Titanium Sic guides. Moving baits I'd say 3/16 to 5/8 is about right for their medium power stuff. Bottom contact, half ounce would be about tops, with 3/8 oz right in the...

I think I'm going to try the major craft like you mentioned. They have several models, can you recommend one?

Thanks!
