haven't done up one of these in a long time.  it's a topless frame for the charter special that tom makes up custom for me, plus the stainless steel arm and 3/0 grip.  if holds 300 yards of 50 pound daiwa j-braid.  nice inshore reel!

the frames for the TR1000 and TR2000 basically turn the charter specials into TLD 5's and 10's.

the accurate valiants have been out for a while.  i'm curious to know how well they've held up.  it's a pretty simple design.  it has the same small pair of anti-reverse roller bearings found in the old boss (pre-extreme) two speed reels, the same shielded bearings, the same tiny frame screws and the same tiny gear teeth.  the new thing i see is the open drag system, similar to the avet.  i'm guessing spool bearing failure, AR bearing failure and shredded gears would be pretty common.   Undecided

an old school penn 349!  i changed out the old gear sleeve for a stainless steel one, then put a #6-875 penn ht-100 drag washer under the main gear and five #6-115's inside.  i installed a pair of #6-115's into the main gear, then a keyed metal washer, then two more #6-115's, then a slotted metal washer, then one #6-115 and then the final keyed metal washer.  the main gear has a slight rub against the side plate, but it goes away when the star is clamped down a little.  this is the most economical way to upgrade the drag stack.

Accurate is proud of the ARBís in the Boss Valiants and swear theyíre much better than in the old reels. Iíve had my BV-300 since soon after they came out and my only issue was the drag ramped up too fast and the lever was hard to advance. They put one of the newer cams in and itís been fine.  I have 300 yds of 50# Maxcuatro with a 40# topshot.

uggghhhhh!!!!  this is really bad.  i found a box from this last july with a saltiga and a torsa.  the saltiga was tedious but very straight forward.  the torsa as well, very straight forward.  it's interesting how this shimano is so simple, yet so horribly expensive!  i'm going to finish this one next and get it shipped back asap.

earlier today i knocked out an old saltist.  these are a great reel and a great price.  it was the accurate atd 50 that took most of the afternoon.  they're not hard. just tedious.

I serviced a couple of Saltists earlier this year that looked even worse than that. I found that after getting all of the salt out of it, everything was pretty much perfect! No corrosion or pitting and everything operated the way it should. Very good, durable reels!

Nice Alan. It's been a busy year so far for me too. I took the day off to help Ruth with shopping and house work. I'm done!

Good morning Alan and Handi,

Should I take your observations to mean a thumbs down on the Valiants? If so what Accurate reel would you recommend?
