i can't believe i'm actually saying this about a shimano reel. don't crack open the new tekota 500 hg line counter to do a pre-service before you fish with it. you don't need to.......

I have several of the older model tekotas and I love them only improvement I made was greased carbon fiber drag washers and replaced the plastic bushing with a bronze one.  I bought one of these new models last year and itís a fantastic bay reel, I troll salmon with it and itís great for mooching.

You sure you just didn't stumble across one that was done properly Alan? I do Tekotas all the time and some (few) are greased well while others looked like they missed that part on the construction line.

You know that moment when your steak is on the grill and you can already feel your mouth watering.
Do vegans feel the same when mowing the lawn?
