Daiwa 8600 reel...

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic


I recently came across an older, probably mid-70s, Daiwa 8600 spinning reel.  It's an all-metal reel, very similar to the old Penn 700 series.  It appears to be slightly smaller than my 704z but much larger than my 710z.



 



My question, DOES ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THESE REELS? 



 



I'm also having an issue with the clicker on the spool locking up and not letting line out from the spool under drag.  It snapped one of the teeth of the gear on the spool shaft.  I removed the clicker, but now it doesn't click when a fish steals some line!



 



If I could figure out how to post pictures, I'll take some shots and post them on here.

So, I figured out to load pictures... for my next trick, I'll actually catch a schoolie haha.



 



 


 


 


 


 


 


 



 



Those are the first 3 I could post.  I'm thinking about cracking open the case and showing everyone how similar and well-built this little tank seems to be.  The internals are almost identical to Penn's 700 series.
