Recently received a 16/0 for some upgrades.


This one is really in excellent shape, I was debating wheater to do it or now




Broken down

will also get new gears and sleeve

double dogs of course


bearings all cleaned and packed

new Titanium handle blade and a new drag kit from Motive Fabrications

a little more work and it will be ready to be reassembled and on its way out to catch a fish of a lifetime.

Benni, get out there, you now have a competition Grin

Best,

Sal

Very Nice Sal.
You are in your Element.
Even with all my Custom Reels and Everol's.
The 16/0 has a Special Place.
The Ultimate Upgrade will be coming soon. Wink

Nice work Sal, your dremel work on the plates is getting harder to pick from the factory molding.

Great stuff Sal. Youll have to do a mini video of how to dremel the side plate.

Sal, I know how you were torn about upgrading a nice 16/0.  I have one in primo condition that will remain stock.  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

Thanks guys, especially you Mike, you could appreciate hand work a little more.

Yup Dominick, I was having such a hard time with it that I told the owner to buy  a 14/0 plate to send it over to me... and he did Grin

He was happy that I recommended a 14/0 plate to save the very hard to find 16/0.
With that said, it is still a 16/0, but Benni has the matching numbers on his Smiley
Sal,I have one in primo condition that will remain stock.  Dominick

This one will remain stock as well Minicuccio Wink, I believe you two already met Smiley



Ok, back on the assembly of the 16/0 Shark Tank#2
bridge and dogs go in

drag insert next


you should end up with two custom metal keyed washers on top and the stock belleville washer

shield next

installing the large delrin washer right under the star will make it possible to move the star with one finger while up to 50lbs...no joke, try it!

and this one will be heading out to battle very soon.


Best,
Sal

McMaster-Carr, I used to buy sheets from them and punch my own, but haven't in a while. let me check the drawer, if I see one I'll send it over.

I'd never seen a 16/0 drag insert - hefty!
Fantastic work Sal.
All the best, Justin

Hi Sal, thanks for showing the 16/0, good photos, my largest reel is a 14/0, has a good free spool like the spool is well balanced, just wants to keep rolling around, I love it, thanks again Sal, cheers Don.
