  1. How do yall rank your top 5 braided lines? This debate comes out time and time again but I wondered about y'all's opinion for overall castability and knot strength ignoring price. (Not including braids over $80 for 300 yards or so) The top 5 that I have tried are Suffix 832 PowerPro Original Berkley X9 Daiwa J braid (tends to get wind knots sometimes) PowerPro Superslick 8 v2 (knots tend to slip+castability decreases significantly after a couple uses) Do not like:Nomad Design, Spiderwire, BeyondBraid, Piscifun, Yo-zuri BTW, how does fireline and Diamond Braid handle?
  2. Hey y’all I just got a used ci4 ultegra 5500. It is the Shimano Ultegra 5500 ci4 xsb model which came out 9 years ago. I was wondering if any owners of either the new or old model could tell me if I had the long spool. The guy that sold it to me told me there was an extra spool. I am aware that it comes with one regular sized spool and a “long spool”. However the two spools I got are the same size. I added pictures below and both the spools seemed to measure 2.5 inches. Furthermore the plastic slow-oscillating unit below the spool, seems to not align straight hence the rattles and the uneven feeling when I turn. I understand that since it is an older model that it won’t be perfect but I would like to know if I got what I paid for. If not, I may have to buy a spare long spool for the reel. Thanks IMG_4967.mov
  3. Hey yall I have a penn battle 5000 which was first spooled by bass pro shops a long time ago. I just decided to change the line but when I tried spooling it, the line lay was bunched mostly near the top and not very much at the bottom. However, my reel did not come with extra washers so I could change the line lay. Do yall know where I could get some?? What size/type/amount of washers do I need. Would 1 extra thin washer in addition to my current one be enough??
  4. VM 275 spool. $75 shipped. Will entertain offers. Payment via PP. Thank you.

  6. Is there anyway to buy spare spools for the VR series gen 2? I know the 150 spool will fit on my 125, but I can’t find anywhere I can purchase one? Thanks un advance.

  15. Hi, Filling up a spinning reel spool with braided line. Something that I think I could improve. What is the best way have as much line as you can get and as tight as possible on the spool? Is it better to spool it by reeling the line with the reel or try and optimize the line lay by having the spool rotating with some tool (like a drill) and lay the line along the spool with your own hands like at the shops? 2 years ago, I bought an Ecooda portable Spooler thing (Piscifun also sells it) I really like that the spool spins as the line goes on the reel. Some people wont agree but I think this might be a good thing because it eliminates (completly?) line twist that I frequently experienced before (when leaving the spool on the ground with the label facing up). With this gadget, the thing is that you are limited on the actual tension you can put so the line feels tight but could be tighter. You are also spinning the reel handle and using the gears, so how much pressure can you actually put... I will share this: Using the Ecooda spooler, I spooled my Penn Clash 6000 with 30lbs Kastking Mega 8 braid. All the way to the last ''Line capacity ring''... It seemed like it was tight enough and would not dig in. The line spool was 547yds, but there is no way I fitted the 490yds of 30lbs braid that Penn states will fit this particular reel. Then I go to Cabo, hook into multiple big fish from the beach en enjoy the longest runs I ever heard on my reel. Alot of line come out...cast + fish run = >200-250yds? Anyway, this line goes back on the reel with all the pressure of these fish. After my trip I realized that my line is much closer to the middle ''Line capacity ring'' than the last one... And now the line is VERY tight on the spool. Looks like I could fit 100yds or so of more braid... Now I'm wondering if I should fill it more with the rest of my spool making a connection double uni-knot (10 wraps each side) or will I whish I didn't when a big fish make a long run with15lbs-20lbs of drag on that knot. (I will prbably make another topic about braid to braid connection knots and purposes) So... Should we over fill it a bit at the beginning? We all know that Penn Spinners don't like being overfilled, so if I'm going to loose 50-70yds on braid from windknot.... Should I wet the spool? ? ? I'd like to here some ideas. thanks!

  18. Hello all, I am trying to upgrade the spool bearing on my ABU 7000C3. I can not seem to get the pin out that holds the bearing in place. Any tips or tricks on removing this pin? Am I going about this all wrong and there is another way to remove the bearing? Thanks for any help guys!!!
  19. Hi, This is my fist post (after being a long time reader) so thanks in advance. I've been surf fishing the Outer Banks for a few years and recently decided to upgrade my gear, mainly to casting (vs. Spinning). My first puchase was a deeply discounted Penn Torque and I've grown to love it during my practice field casting (it will be on its fist trip in oct). My second purchase was a new Abu 6500i TSR and it arrived last night. my concern and question to this group is how much left to right play should the spool have and should it sound like it is rubbing when I lean it to one side. I am able to shift the spool left and right about 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch and when in free spool (spinning it with my thumb, no line) it sounds as if the spool is lightly making contact with the housing if I tilt it towards the side of the handle (it makes no sound if level or leaning g the other way). I opened that side up to see if it was missing a spacer but it looked like all the parts in the diagram were there. I would consider myself a newbie to the casting side so I don't have much knowledge to minimize these concerns if in fact they are normal. I thought I would reach out here before contacting the seller or Abu. Thanks!!
