Re: Bearing upgrades - your thoughts appreciated

Would like to thank everyone for all the great information. Although I did a modicum of reel maintenance, I feel that going forward I would like to get a bit more serious about maintaining my reels. Over the past several years I have been replacing and upgrading my rods and reels and feel it is impo...

Re: Bearing upgrades - your thoughts appreciated

I just watched a YouTube video with buddy changing out spool bearings. It looks rather straight forward. Also during my YouTube research I saw a tool used to remove the retaining pin on the spool shaft. All buddy used was a pair of pliers. My concern would be damage to the shaft and pin using the pl...

Re: Whopper Plopper

Never too early to start shopping for next year......just got a box of goodies from 6th Sense Lure Co.

I'm a member of several fishing boards, there seem to be a bit of a cult following with Whopper Plopper on a board that specializes in River Smallies.

Good luck,
Drop

Re: Bearing upgrades - your thoughts appreciated

Thanks for the info guys!!!

OK....I will be honest. I lubricate but never have flushed my bearings. What solvent would you recomend. Also my Hot Sauce oil and greese containers are almost empty. Any recomendations on prefered lube brands appreciated.

Bearing upgrades - your thoughts appreciated

Greetings, I would like to ask the board about their thought and opinions on up-grading the bearings on a baitcaster to ceramic such as ABEC-7's. I have done a bit of research on this and have no clear answer. I have heard claims of being noisy and the expense was not worth the net gain in distance....

Re: Rodbuilding stuff Ottawa-Gatineau

Welcome to Canada, you're gonna love it here. OK....if you need to ship product from the US the one shipper you want to try and avid is UPS. Great shipper, but they will screw the pants off of you with Brokerage Fees. I prefer to have USPS ship my packages when available. If you must use UPS please ...
