  1. there are beeter reel guys here then me, but until one of them chimes in......i gotta go with crosswind block if the knock is coming at the top of the spool travel. if it was my reel i would add a heavy grease to that area and see what happens, but thats me. tony in the penn forum would certainly help you out if you are not comfortable in that area. there is a good tutorial on that reel in alan tani's site. good luck to ya

  11. very nice
  12. i like the 50 lb clips. like to keep the hardware to a minimum. i fish 30lb braid so i figure don't need heavier clips. they do get bent sometimes and i just toss em..............i also like to carefully wind them through the guides when i am done fishing or changing reels
  13. hey shark lobster, i have used cal's and penn blue without problems
