  1. Not sure what the clearance is on the narrow but I static magged my original sg and get decent distance without worrying to much about overrun. Just a thought
  2. Lol. Just messing with ya. Ya I'm surprised I didn't catch a a27 to the face the way they were trying to cast
  3. I had a clue lol just wanted to be ready if albies passed through and let the metal fall a few seconds ever few casts just to avoid boredom from waiting.. was good to see the spikes out at least though
  4. Has there been any action on sharks lately... north of cape may?
  5. Big
  6. Fish are here.. plugged a bunch,including keepers, dropped a bunch more last night. You will need to actually look for them though.no pics. Good luck.Also saw some blue's caught.
  7. Yes my plans ate primarily a chunking reel and something to play with on the field during the off season.. was planning on upgrading the drag, swapping bearings for ceramic hybrids and possibly installing a screw magnetic on the left side.. I don't need the clicker I never put a rod in a spike
  8. Yeah it free spools fine.. Just that I lost some of the spin time after the I removed the shields and cleaned and relubed the spool bearings.. most people probably wouldn't even notice the difference if not for the fact that I timed the spin time before the cleaning.. I didn't mess with that black yolk that I think your referring too
  9. I appreciate the help. After trying all this pretty sure it's the bearings themselves.. I didnt put the shields back on but still feels a bit snaggy. I reseated the plastic gear many times with no change. I guess either the I intruded something into the bearings when I removed the sheid's or I damaged them...which I doubt because I was very careful. Either way I'll be ordinary bearing upgrades anyways so hopefully that will make it perform even better.. still performs great either way
  10. What is the best way to center the spool? I'm not entirely certain I'm doing that right. Do I right both than start loosening the left than the right or vice versa. And should there be any play in the the spool or should there be no movement at all?
  11. So got I bought a abu chrome rocket CT over the holidays. Brand new not a mark on it.Spin tested once I centered everything and had spin time almost a minute . Took everything apart..it was almost bone dry, very little lube anywhere. As part of the maintenance I removed the spool bearings, removed the shields very gently, cleaned with carb cleaner, let sit for 20 minutes , lubed with 2 drops of Daiwa bearing lube and got spin times to only 20 seconds..got frustrated, recleaned the bearings and ran dry...now at 25 secs... any idea of what I might have done wrong...I planned on replacing the bearings with better anyway but wondering what I can do to get spin time back up to the original times I tested? This has me scratching my head, I was very thorough, nothing I haven't done before.
  12. Yes I would be powder coating do the only issue I might have I would think is the bake temp on softer metals. .but correct me of I'm wrong
  13. I wonder how easy the emblem is to get off without breaking it
