Instead of starting a new thread, I'll post these pics in the original by The Fishing Hobby.

I got this Daiwa 8600 on eBay in a lot of 9 assorted spincasters, baitcasters, and spinners.  All reels averaged $4.75 shipped each.

It was scuffed and dirty, handled turned very stiffly, needed serviced very badly.








Wouldn't doubt it had ever been serviced.








Cleaning this one was a chore.  Lacquer thinner, Simple Green, and Dawn dishwashing detergent took care of it.


Reinstalling bail trip lever and spring.


Used Ardent Reel Butter reel oil on the bearings.  This reel had one pinion bearing and two bearings on the main gear.


Almost got it back together.


Still scratched and scuffed and definitely not a looker but this reel will be fished.  It's missing a side plate screw I can probably find either in the laundry room or garage.




These reels weigh 18.4 oz not including line, and are approximately the same size as a D-A-M Quick 440 or a Shakespeare 2081-A.  They should be able to handle many of the larger freshwater species such as catfish, striped bass, carp, buffalo, drum, lake trout, and paddlefish.


That looks like it cleaned up well! The history marks are no big deal  Grin
Hope you like it, they are very good quality reels!

Nice work, festus.  Impressive reel.  I noticed on one of the old ads that Daiwa had a lifetime warranty on the 8600 (maybe others too) & I wonder what hassles might result to enforce that warranty today.
