Shimano Chronarch 201E7

Low profile casting reel with high speed gears and 7 bearings.  Local reel that has been used hard and dunked in the local glacial streams more than once. Outside looks dirty and silty if that is a word.  Worm gear is filled and every crevasse is filled.  Im not optimistic about the inside at this […]

Shimano 1500LC Trolling Reel

Shimano 1500LC is a great salmon trolling reel.  Direct drive with a line counter.  No longer being made and parts are hard to come by but these old reels are valuable to the salmon angler in the Puget Sound.  Two ball bearings and a simple drag.  Not many parts on these reels.  Bearings need constant […]

Shimano Stradic CI4 4000F

$229.99 spinning reel from Shimano.  Used for two seasons in the saltwater and no service or maintenance.  What do you end up with?  All bearings toast, pinion corroded to the spool shaft.  Shims destroyed.  On the outside it still looks brand new.  On the inside, it is a total loss.  Take the $229.00 plus tax […]

Shimano Chronarch 100SF

Since I spend time outlining the need for preventative care and maintenance on your reels and demonstrating the results, I thought I would write a happy story for a change of pace.  This is one of two Chronarch Super Free reels I got in the other day.  The gentlemen was an active bass fisherman in […]

Nothing is better…

A gentlemen calls today and asks if I can service a reel meant for his son’s birthday.   A Penn 209 pretty dirty but serviceable.  His son’s birthday is Friday and wants to know if I can get his reel up and running before then.   Nothing is better in my opinion than introducing a […]

Shimano C Word

Curado, Calcutta’s and Chronarch’s this weekend.  Turning out to be a Shimano weekend.  All reels are in pretty good condition considering their age and usage. The Calcutta TE 400 is a great reel.  Anti reverse dog and one way bearing!  Large drag surfaces.  The old Curado is from 1998, and still a true joy to […]
