QuoteNice job Jason!Are those aluminum bars available through AT?Gotta ask why you don't have a bling handle on there though?
Quote from: thorhammer on May 31, 2023, 06:04:47 PMNice. There's power handles specifically for Abu; I put them on all my 6000- size builds without issue. Like the doublke down on the AR. IMO you should yank the plate stickers and polish- I saw what you did on the Spinfisher.
Quote from: JasonGotaProblem on May 31, 2023, 05:14:04 PMThis is a fun one. I used a 6500C3 as a base, swapped the brake plate in from a 5500C donor to have a mechanical AR in addition to the IAR in the sideplate. I also got steel main and hardened bronze pinion from Rocket.
Quote from: Gfish on June 01, 2023, 03:40:57 PMHmmmm, maybe that's why those old school 5000's had such small handles. I put the same Daiwa 27H handle on an '73 Ambassadeur 5000 and it works without any handle movement—kick into gear—-problems, yet...Nice reel Jason. An ARB + Abu dog might be a great improvement for FW. For SW I wouldn't add an ARB.
QuoteI've done it a few times. Always on levelwinds with a power handle. Sometimes bumped into the handle during the cast, sometimes a mystery engagement. Heavier handles/counterbalances make it more likely. Apparently the one way bearing makes it worse, because any handle movement will start to kick it into gear. Yet another downside to one way bearings.
