  1. Things have changed, there is no 2000. It's probably fine for your application. It's too small for me, but that's just my preference. It has just one drag washer and 7lbs max drag. The 2500FK has three drag washers and almost triple the max drag. The rest of the design is the same throughout the series except for gear ratios. Early small stradics from the '90's had only 1 felt drag washer and they worked quite nicely for me. A $103 bucks new, shipped PayPal is available on the auction site.
  2. Thanks for the responses. I looked at LEDs today. That's probably what I'll put in when these tubes poop out. I'll look for some "conductive grease".
  3. Hi! I'm am having some continuing minor problems with my garage lighting. I still have T12 fixtures, with T12 bulbs. I had a whole case of bulbs when I retired and now they are depleted. I have 4, 2bulb fixtures and 3, 1bulb fixtures. The ballasts are low temp instant start. Additional bad news is I installed them 25 years ago. My problem is often when switching on the lights 1,2,or 3 bulbs fail to light especially in colder weather. Wiggling them a little in their crummy fittings they start unless they are fully cooked. This isn't the end of the world and I'm not really concerned about energy conservation for the garage lights. So my questions relate to what to do now. How long can one expect the ballasts to last? Is there some sort of lube to apply on the ends of the tubes to ensure a better electrical contact? Im not ready today to spring for a major re-work. Today I bought a 10pack of T12s to carry me along until I'm forced to replace everything. Thanks for any insights. Lew
  4. PM coming, Thank You xjclint! Lew This is now closed.
  5. You got one! It would not have fit in the priority box with the lures anyways. I'll get it out this afternoon. Thanks, Lew There is only one 2500FK left---
  6. PM acknowledgment coming, Thanks again Quan, Lew
  7. Walleye to 15lb, trout, steelhead, sturgeon (bi-catch), lots of different stuff out here. The only differences between the 2500FK and the 3000FK is spool capacity and handle knob. Actually preferred the 2500 handle mainly because I didn't fish with heavy gloves. (take two, they're small)
  8. No it's not too late! If you want two you can save yourself $12.40 if I put them in the same medium box with the ABUs. That would be an additional $187.60 ( I pay the PayPal fees) Lew
