  1. It all started with a Shimano TranX 300 that I bought 5 years ago. I liked fishing with the reel so much that I started to collect TranX's "Just in case." But lately, I've been using more of spinning reels and bigger conventional reels and decided to part ways. I'm only going to keep my original Shimano TranX 300 and Daiwa Lexa 400 and sell the rest. I will create a thread for each reel. First up: Daiwa Lexa 300 Type WN (LEXA-WN300HS-P) Cosmetically 9/10, Functionally 10/10 No box/No manual Price: $145 shipped It's spooled with 40 lb braid, most likely PowerPro, but not 100% sure.
  2. Hit my high series tonight. (6th) 300 (2nd) 800
  3. Found a VS 300 for a good deal so might jump on it. Does anyone still fish one and if so what do you use it for? I really like the idea of being able to crank in big fish with it, I'm just kind of worried about the line lay issues on the older VS. Any input would be appreciated thanks!
  4. Any black 300s out there?
  5. Anyone have one they're willing to part with? Located in Hull MA thx
  6. Can't quite get my Tranx 300 back to normal performance after my first breakdown of it. With the drag loosened all the way from 0 to about 33%, everything feels fine... once I tighten down the drag star to about half and beyond, this also is having a moderate lock up effect of the handle turning. Although the reel does function, this issue creates a distinct and persistent knocking sound and vibration of the whole reel in hand as you turn the handle. In light drag scenarios this is unoticeable, but when I go to use this reel for flippin and punchin with fully engaged drag it will be an issue. Any thoughts/suggestions? Have reassembled the handle/tension nut/spring/etc portion of the reel several times now and nothing seems to mitigate. Thanks for any help!
  7. Try to reassemble my Tranx 301A. This was not a full breakdown, just took it down to removing the handle/drag star/4 frame screws etc to take a look at the inside and apply some grease to the main gear. Anyway, once I get to reassembling the drag star, I'm running into the issue of my drag star also seeming to tighten/roughen up the cranking of the handle. It is progressive... fully disengaged drag = brand new reel smooth...fully tightened drag = barely a full rotation if I tap the handle and a very rough sensation/vibration of the reel in hand. Have watched and rewatched @scoobydoo 's video several as I am assembling and disassembling, I am pretty sure I have everything oriented correctly, but obviously something is off (the video is extremely helpful and detailed, I am just screwing up something). Any input would be very helpful as I am not even sure what to check at this point. My newbie guess as to what the issue is has something to do with the initial hand tightening of the tension nut and/or how it is making contact with the washer that sits between the nut/sleeve.
  8. Good Morning! I find myself in need of a side plate screw for a Crack 300 reel. As I understand it, these screws are a bastard metric size that is not readily available. Happy to pay for the screw (ha!) and the postage. Let me know if anyone can lend a hand in completing this rebuild. Thank you! -Buckmark22
