Quote from: streetnfish on April 28, 2014, 06:17:25 AMHey guys, Finally got all my parts together and can start upgrading my reels. First reel done was my 501. Upgrades were A Tiburon frame, Alan C's SS package "A", Bryan's 5 stack drag kit, Alan T's SS gear sleeve, a 5:1 SS gear set from Global (until Alan comes out with his), and a 24-56 handle from Scott's. Everything went together well and the parts looked great. No problems with the dog springs or the jack that I could notice. Dogs are pretty quiet (My Trinidad dog upgrades make a lot more noise. The gears are a little rough but not horrible. Alan T's gear sleeve really makes a nice snug fit for the handle which I like. Didn't do any max drag test as I don't intend to fish super heavy drag and I just want the smoothness. I just want to thank everybody mentioned above as everybody made ordering parts easy and shipping was prompt. USPS on the other hand could use a little help as they were slow processing some of my packages. (at least they didn't lose them). And also thanks to all the members who contribute their knowledge and experience to this site. It helps guys like me to "tinker" with fewer mishaps.

Quote from: Alto Mare on April 27, 2014, 01:27:25 PMHere are some shots, as Alan mentioned aboveand breaking the reels down to check the gearsthese handled 22lbsand the 112Hhere is a shot of the damaged gears from the 112Hthe 112H failed at around 16lbsMy take on this is that these jigmaster gears could handle 20lb, but I would use the new spacer and Bryan's kit, that one was smoother. I'm still not sure what's causing these gears to fail in the 112H at 16 lbs, we will need to wait and see what Alan's people come up with, I believe they're already working on them. Sal
