WTS Tsunami Shield 5000. Manual bail pickup installed (see pics). Has 30# Cortland braid. Clean, no mechanical issues. Would be a fun reel to learn how to fish without a bail. Good starter reel or something to throw on a back-up rod. Shield 5000 built on same platform as Shield 6000 but lighter (smaller spool), still holds a lot of braid. "Sealed reel" don't fish it like a Van Staal, but will take a beating on the beaches of the Jersey shore and will wash up at the end of the day with fresh water. Sits well on most 9 or 10 foot rods (can be used on a 7-8' MH-Hvy inshore rod as well). Carbon drag (sealed). Asking $80 obo. Paypal. Willing to meet in Northern NJ, will discuss shipping if no other bids.
AdamHJeep posted a topic in Reel Maintenance and RepairJust lost 2 lures to my bail closing today. Never had an issue since April but maybe because the cold maybe? It always used to be real hard to close via handle (so much so It taught me to close manually anyway) but I guess something loosened up or broke in to the point where it is very little pressure needed to turn hanfle a d auto close. Anyway looking for instructions to remove the bail auto trip on my Slammer 3 5500 to make it a manual colse. Also any talk of a bailess kit yet? I have very little experience see icing reels but it can't be harder than working on a 500k stay machine which I can do lol. Thanks in advance!
