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.

Bellevilles were changed over to a "((())" configuration to steepen the drag profile,  the drag pressure plate was shimmed to keep it straight,  the right spool bearing was shimmed,  the white canvas drag washer was replaced with greased carbon fiber,  a signature handle was installed,  the reel was loaded with 500 yards of daiwa j-braid x4,  I was able to fit 150 yards of 40 pound Berkley big game,  and the drag was set to 12 pounds at strike and 20 pounds at full (30% and 50%).

Nice touch with both the drag and line stickers.

Cool reel. Appears to be all aluminum. Are you going to do a full service on it?

Curious to see the insides.

Cheers

Splash anodizing Steve - The surface of the Al is porous when it comes out of the bath and will accept dye until it's sealed in hot water or a propriety sealing solution with nickel acetate or some secret mixture.  I don't know for sure but it looks like this one would have first been dyed red then randomly wiped with a masking agent. The unmasked areas were then bleached to remove the red from the unmasked areas and then dyed yellow/gold. Masking agent was then dribbled or splashed where they wanted the yellow to stay and then bleach the rest of the yellow out of the unmasked area and dye the rest black. Then remove all the masking agent to uncover the masked red and yellow pattern and seal the surface to trap the dye. It's not as simple as that to do it properly and the grown-up anodizers that specialize in custom finishes on paint-ball guns and stuff keep their secret techniques and dyes pretty close to their chest.
