Quote from: Keta on September 21, 2022, 02:20:24 PMOne can hand fit double dogs so they engage at the same time. I am in the alternate engagement and creating a smoother drag at or slightly above factory spec. camp. Drag on some reels can be safely increased, usually narrow reels, but post frames can twist under higher than designed loads. A half or solid frame will help. You can invest more into building a custom reel than the cost of a modern reel and not get close to modern reel specs but the "cool factor" is not there.
Quote from: oldmanjoe on September 22, 2022, 07:28:30 PMWhich bridge assembly would do better under a heavy load , both are the same diameter posts and sleeve diameter with the same ratchet radius . The one with .004 thousands gap or the .018 thousands gap ?
Quote from: oldmanjoe on September 23, 2022, 01:02:29 AMLets break this down some . With .004 or less , the ratchet radius can act quicker to help stabilize the post verses .018 . Lets look at the cut of the main gear , when it`s under load which way is the gear heading toward the bridge or toward the spool ?
Quote from: JasonGotaProblem on September 23, 2022, 04:16:24 AMWhat if I scavenge some bits from the spool caps of one of my less interesting reels and put it behind the bearing? Am i just grasping at straws here?
Quote from: oldmanjoe on September 23, 2022, 03:25:10 AMThe fun of it all is can any of us really build the reel according the blue print . Can we check every part for the designed fit , not the production run fit , not the parts that come from 3-4 different manufacturers and think you are just going to assemble it with blue print tolerances.
Quote from: steelfish on September 22, 2022, 04:16:50 PM.....or just static mag that reel.make some casts to check what would be the average weight you were using and static mag it accordingly, it works!!
Quote from: Keta on September 23, 2022, 01:08:46 PMContact Alan at Pro Challenger about having a run of spools made.I have more $ in a all metal 349H than a new Penn FTH40NLD2 costs.... however the 349 is a much "cooler " reel.... ;0).
