this is a chinese import.  it's a typical design and it actually works very well.  lots of stainless steel where it counts.  i cleaned out the bearings and replaced the drag washers, then loaded it up with 300 yards of fresh 25 pound mono.  the line underneath looked like it was loaded loose.  it was a mess.  it will be a great salmon reel now!

a 114h.  this one was likely submerged.  somehow the click tongue broke.  water got into the drag stack and caused the gear sleeve to seize up.  i got apart, but only after torching it for a very long two minutes.  i find myself torching stuff alot more these days!  total time spend on this one was two hours!

an beautiful avet sx raptor, loaded with 250 yards of 50 pound seagar hollow threadlock and a 25 yard topshot of 30 pound berkley big game, drag set to 9 pounds at strike, 12 pounds at full.  not a big fan of the cast control.  even at the lowest setting, the freespool is very poor.  the magnet is easy to pull if you ever want to disable it.  you literally reach in and pull the magnet out.

ah, remember that i said that this would be a problem?  well, here it is.  one of the new toriums with a bad bearing.  then entire reel has to come apart to replace the bearing. 



yup, the right spool bearing.  surprisingly, it's in incredibly bad shape compared to the rest of the reel. 



and here's the reason.  there is a gasket that holds water in.  never noticed that before.  well, the bearing is being replaced and the gasket is being tossed.

Alan I have to torch the gear sleeves on the H2 models more than any other.

Today I was repairing a Calcutta 200B. When I removed the pawl cap inside the little hole in the pawl was a click spring and click pin used to put pressure on the pawl Huh?

the calcutta 700 B was a redesign and a big improvement over the old 700.  very straight forward reels to service.
