Nice! I gotta come back out there for a rigging / splicing class! How's Joey?
John, you set up a trip and I'll join you. Maybe we can talk him into a boat ride. After the class, of course.

here's that shim washer that i was talking about earlier.  just finished two of these and they did not have or need the washer.  now this third one has a washer,  it provides a little space between the drag pressure plate and the left side plate bearing.  maybe there were differences between some of the different runs of side plates......   Undecided

this little guy was torched and still took 20 minutes.  just add grease to the screw and a little to the screw hole.  no need to clean it out.  grease alone will work fine.

Balance the reel weight/CG to the center of the spool?? Not including the handle??

An uneducated guess.

not sure who wound on the braid for this guy, but this pin will come flying out if pulled hard enough.

Haven't tried casting this way but here is a partial description of the Torsa from a Shimano retailer:  "The handle side of the spool is taller than the non-handle side. This extended spool lip gives the angler a very consistent surface to thumb during the cast. It has shown to be valuable as it provides more manageability than thumbing the inconsistent surface of the line on the spool."

Of course, that only means something if you cast with the wrong hand!

Not necessarily many fellas will across the spool to thumb the shoulder of the spool.

Had a friend who I guess was watching me cast over a period of three days on the river.
He asked why I sometimes thumb different sides of the when casting.
I didnt have an answer because I didnt realize I did this.
I soon realized I get better leverage & better finesse using different sides of the spool during a cast

I cant explain it but I can feel it & see the difference ... Jeff

now this was a disappointment.  12 pounds of drag at strike before losing freespool.  the reel is rigged with 300 yards of 60 pound hollow on bottom and 300 yards of 80 pound hollow on top.  the limited drag range makes this reel suitable for a 40 pound topshot and that's it.  i think this one is a single drag system, not double, which would explain the poor drag range.

I agree.  I started with Accurate because of the well-tested dual drag system.  Small reels, big fish.
