  1. With the reel being out now for half a season. How has it been holding up for you guys that have put some time in on it? Figured I'd start this thread since the original thread has gone 50 pages and a fresh thread may make it easier to find valuable on the water first hand experiences and feedback. So what say's she been treatin ya? Stripers Online Amazon affiliate link to the reel
  2. So after a dozen school is bass and four short flounder my tsunami shield 3000 is basically shot!!! It’s clunking, grinding, a little sticky when cranking!!!! It’s driving me nuts. After several inquiries on here it seems nobody knows how to service these things? I’m sure I could get the reel to a tolerable condition if I could get inside of it and clean it grease it you know basic maintenance. Anybody have any info on how to get inside? Has anybody had theirs serviced? I know it’s only a 100 dollar reel but I’ve fished a penn fierce at 60 dollars through much much more abusive conditions than the shield has been through without these same results.
  3. Tsunami shield reel, saw a video on td. Sealed reel, all aluminum and around 100 bucks. We won't know till the end of the year but it looks interesting.
  4. I was cleaning my reel for the first time since I bought back in March or april. I never noticed if this was factory or broke since I never really inspected the reel. Usually just rinse off in my sink with very light pressure from the faucet. I tried looking at other pics online but couldn’t get a clear picture. So my question is, is this part broke? If it is it’s a pretty odd break.
  5. Specs say I can put 400 yds. of 30lb. braid. How much do I really want to put on there ? If not all braid then what underneath ? Thanks
  6. Hey guys any opinion on this reel? The reason I am asking is because I am getting into a new surf setup, decided on a TFO 11ft Tactiocal Series (mind could change), but still looking for a nice reel. I am novice level fisherman use to be living in CT, but relocated to OK. I was thinking a Penn Slammer 3 5500, but unfortunately its a little out of my price range, then I looked at the new Diawa BG series and was thinking between a 4500 and 5000 series, however I was browsing Youtube the other day and found out about SurfCasterJournal and saw this. This application will be for dam fishing, down south here in Oklahoma/Texas Stripers are fished mostly at dams. So I am fishing 3/4oz-2oz jig heads with flukes or sassy shad and throwing 1oz to 3oz top water plugs. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. My price range for rod and reel would be around ($400).
