Exceptional work and raises the level of looks and performance way up the ladder. Something to really be proud of.
I would like to know that as well. I have a D.A.M. Quick 440. I am going to glass bead blast it, slot it, etc. I would like to fabricate a manual pick up.
Does anyone know if there is a metal spool available for this model. I want to weigh both the plastic and metal (if available) and see how close I can get the metal spool (after drilling) to the lite weight plastic. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
ive been told the 270 metal spool fits the 550 but not the 440 and looking at parts i saw it being said that the 330 and 440 use the same plastic spool.i did a fast light mod on a 440 for the fourth and was impressed at the bearing size in these reels.they can be a nice cheap custom.im going to do a 550 or a 551which ever has the bail lock on the line guide side. and as a man.pickup goes im going to measure a roller for a 302 pum kit and see what height/clearance issues of the spool cup/spool travel arise.
jerry im gonna due a 550 because thats the size i want. your man pickup should also apply to the 550 the 331/441/ 551 or the n are they the high speed version im gonna make people take new liking to these big bearing jewels.that 440 i did met my reserve on ebay last sun.ps pm me when you bumpthat post thanks.
