Possibly a bad pinion gear, could the spool be damged? Maybe when it rides in the pinion it got damged. I'm going ti take it apart today and I will keep...

Anti- Reverse Bearing install/ Engaging issue.

1) Hey guy's im changing out my ARB on my Core 100 and was wondering if I should just install it as is out of package from Shimano or add a drop of oil or put a little bit of grease on it? 2) Secondly, I did not push my thumbar down all the way on a cast and the reel made a huge buzzing noise. Now t...

Re: New shimano lineup question

I believe its just easier... having the almost identical body style incorporated with a few different little schematics. I was hoping for a little better change among the Chronarch but it just recieved a color lift and power knobs. Im Glad it is made in Japan though thats a huge plus. Maybe it may f...

Re: Jackall Bonnie 95

I think they are made in the U.S.... The ones from japan have different color schemes. The 85 is absolute money in the fall when the bait are up.

Re: Vicious Pro Elite fluorocarbon.

Thanks for the useful info again guy's. I am scared to tell you the truth, it seems to put me on the border of just not dealing with it. I used the old stuff in the past and if it was clear and golden it was 100% perfect. If it was milky and rough you were pretty much screwed. The original vicious n...
