Hi Team

I think I stripped my Saltiga 20 star.  I probably overtightened because I need to add a washer or shim to the gear collar, ran out of threads.

Need to find/order a replacement.

Thanks

Hi Hans,

If you stripped the threads of the star, adding shims will not help. I have seen on the lower gear sleeves stripped but the upper area is just fine. A good way to test the star is the screw on the star without any spaces and shims, star clicker and the like. Once screwed on wobble or try to wobble the star in ever single direction. If it wobbles I one or more directions, your star will likely need replacing. Next inspect your gear sleeve with the reel unassembled.  That mat need replacing.

Of the few dozen or so Daiwa saltiga reels that I had serviced, I havenít replaced a star yet. I had replaced several gear sleeves sue to stripping.

Good luck in your investigation.

Hi, thanks for reply Bryan.

Yeah, the star is wobbling in all directions.  mostly on the bottom part of the gear sleeve, so i guess I need that as well.

ANy idea where to source both parts?
Thanks

Daiwa is in Cerritos. Sav-on Tackle in Santa Fe Springs is a warranty center, maybe thatís what you were thinking about.
