I don't care what fans say, but something is wrong with japanese made daiwas lately. i read three recent complaints from people who bought brand new saltigas then had to replace gears shortly, and i see more photos of broken bodies and handles falling apart

I've had similar experiences with Penn Craptivas...

Screws falling out and bails falling off after NO fish.

A screw fell out and the roller went sailing after 2 short Fluke, etc.

When I get a new reel, I ALWAYS put blue Loctite on the fasteners.

next time you wanna buy a new reel, contact the manufacturer and get a reel kit, at least it will save you the disassembly hassle. kooky.gif

You might be onto something--one of the Canal guys burned out the gears in a 6000 GT in a month. Daiwa did send him a new replacement reel rather than making him wait for a repair, but it did shake his confidence in the reel a bit.

 

I just replaced the two line roller bearings in my 6000-Z. First things I've replaced in 5 seasons--and when I took the old assembly apart, there was only one bearing in there--the second was never installed originally.

 

Of course, one bearing is probably all it needed. cwm27.gif
