I love my Pacifica, but it is now a 4:1 with a steel Jigmaster gear set. The 5:1 brass Pacifica set are in a 501.

finally got three reels to work on at once, to make it easier to see the "before," "after," and "in between" shots!

Hey Alan, thanks for doing that video. Most people who know me know that I am not a big fan of Shimano reels. But the TLD's I agree are fantastic reels... Jeff

like many of you, i get a fair number of calcutta TE's.  nice reels, but they can be a little tricky.  here is the most common mistake i find.  the leave spring dog is not properly grabbing the ratchet gear.  the first photo is what many of us see.  the second photo is how it is supposed to be.  if you allow the drive shaft to turn in the "forward" direction, you let the dog out!

the more i work on these reels, the more like them.  i just wish they had a higher "power to weight" ratio!

  Alan, I agree. As I learned more about lever drags it took the Avets some time to grow on me. But after working on a few I finally relized that in the Raptor version they were pretty much every thing I looked for in a reel. Being simple to service & as bullet proof as any reel made. When fished with in their specs... Jeff

Those Raptors have pretty high specs! The std reels have to be fished with their specs, not their looks. The G2’s are what the std should’ve been.
