Sid, if you look at the photos you will see that the pivot for the dogs is not 180* apart which throws a wrench into the monkey works.  Cheesy Cheesy
That throws a wrench into the monkey works the way you were trying to solve the problem (which was part of the oversimplification, too). I think in my explanation the pivots don't have to be 180* apart, they just have to be the same distance from the axis of rotation, and the dogs have to be the same length.

I only ask because I saw a 61 recently in a store for $125 and thought it was a good deal. There seems to be no information on Abu G website. I really like the C3s and will soon be hotrodding a 6501. The Record already appears to have many of these upgrades.

Thanks,
Jay

Hi MO those 49A spools are not plastic but reinforced fiberglass and they were made by Penn U.S.A. for the purpose of shore-based tuna fishing in the 1950's from the Cape Point area, specifically Rooikrantz in Cape Town South Africa.  Penn certainly knew what they were doing and because of them, we can still see their longevity up till today.
I've seen various references to this, some claiming the targeted fish to be tuna, some yellowtail. Cor's video didn't look like those were tuna at all. They looked like yellowtail sanapper. In my part of the world yellowtail are snapper, not tuna. Are we talking about the same fish? Is there a "yellow'tail'" tuna I don't know about?

Dang, STeve, that's incredible! I don't know how it feels, or how well it functions, but it looks dang good!

Time for another project.

Rudy, I think that's an oversimplification of the problem. When you add two more teeth you change the way both dogs contact the teeth, not just one. And they should both be affected to the same degree, no? With more teeth they'll travel a litter farther from the axis of rotation, but still maintain contact with each tooth to the same degree (not the same degree as before, that changes - each of the dogs contacts as much of each of the opposite teeth - I'm trying to say it's symmetrical). I think that as long as the dogs pivot the same distance from the axis of rotation the simultaneous (or alternating, take your pick) actuation of the dogs should be maintained. This is probably the wrong place to have this discussion and I'll try to find time to make it a thread of its own later.

How many wraps are you doing? You are ending up with a very very long knot. When I tie them in 20-30lb braid I would end up with a knot under 1/2" long, even in heavy braid (80-100lb) the knot might be 1" long plus some scraps for the finishing hitches and rizutto.

I can see the cris-cross of your wraps which makes me think they aren't sitting down nicely on top of each other. Maybe I should do a video about how I tie them...
