Hey Boss, does that shift or is it a synchro like the 8000 you did for me? I remember seeing those in the first BPS catalogs we ever got- around 1988.

I think the syncro drag could be backed off by turning the handle backwards to lighten the drag setting. Then forward to return to the original setting. I had one, I think it’s in Hawaii now
Tight lines, Brendan.

this came in from the east coast. the owner wanted it dialed back a little. normally this reel would be loaded with 600 yards of 130 pound braid and a 130 pound fluoro topshot, but the request here was for a 100 yard 80 pound topshot. had to soften up the belleville stack from "(()))" to "()()" to get the proper drag range. when i was spooling it up, i found a problem with the low gear. had to replace it and the cross bar because it was slipping. you see this with the both the older penn vs/vsx line and the makaira 20's. a new cross bar and low speed main gear took care of that issue. the drag curve is really nice! in the video, you can see the problem with the low gear. it's the type of thing that you would only figure out with the reel on the winder (or when you're fighting a fish).  it's all done now. came out really nice!!!!!

Hmm?  How many times do I fish this reel before I wash the salt off?  Surely more than one time...  Grin  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

This was done a while ago...sorry, I like to go back and read again at times when things are very interesting to me Smiley

As shims, a spacer does great things on fishing reels, are you still using Teflon?
Those will get the job done, but you might be better off with a Delrin spacer.
Delrin material doesn't compress as easy as the Teflon, it contains Nylon, making much harder but still just as slippery...just a thought Smiley.
