  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. Looking for a Shimano Tranx 401, left hand retrieve. TRX401A, or the HG model will work. Got one you don't use anymore? Thanks
  4. Selling two reels. Both are in new condition, never used. Box included. Calcutta Conquest 401 has line. $500 shipped continental U.S. Tranx 201HG, $160 shipped continental U.S. PayPal/Venmo preferred.
  5. I want to build 4 setups around TWO low profile baitcasters for saltwater (Southwest Florida inshore fishing). I currently only have freshwater baitcasters (bass) and conventional beach heavers. I have tons of spinning gear, but I want to change it up and I prefer baitcasters to spinning gear for most applications. When it comes to whats available in low profile baitcasters for salt, I am somewhat a newbie. I fish inshore on a flats and bay boat. I shore, beach, pier, wade, and kayak fish as well. The range of species I target is huge. Light game: mangrove snapper, sheepshead, & trout. (Occasional spanish mack) Large game: Snook, jacks, tarpon, reds, & grouper. I want a light lure setup (300 size) and a heavy (400 size) setup. Light Setup This reel would be used for light jigs, spoons, jerkbaits, small live bait, popping corks. Heavy Setup This reel would be used for medium chunk bait, large live bait, large swimbaits, heavy bucktails/flarehawks, large poppers, & jerkbaits. Ideally, I would have 4 rods, 2 or each reel. I am not concerned about rod models yet, as I build custom rods and have not decided to build or purchase the associated rods. I just want to get a few reels and build rods around them for my applications. 2 in fiberglass or ugly stiks for live bait/poppers I am not too overly concerned with rod sensitivity on live bait rods. 2 would be faster action graphite blanks (one medium/light, one heavy) I am interested in a 300 & 400 series Tranx or Lexa (not interested in the Revo Beast or Okuma models). (I would love a Tranx 500, but I can't justify $500 for this setup) I would like to have one of each, Lexa & Tranx. Which should I purchase for the 300 and which for the 400? Eventually, I will purchase dedicated reels for each rod. At the moment I want to stick with two nicer baitcasters. I prefer to have multiple blanks/spools for each reel depending on the application and get the most use out of each reel! I know I can get by with a size 200 real, but I don't mind a little extra weight, and I like the added ruggedness the 300 series reels seem to have over 200 sizes at the moment. Thoughts? Am I off base? What would you guys recommend? Should I just buy a 400 and buy spare spools?
