Bob/BMITCH,
Did you ever finish your reel?  If so, please tell us about it.  Photos would be nice.  I have a 700 coming in the mail so I'm kinda interested in them.

Thanks,
George

Sorry to say George, this is as far as I got Sad  got kinda side tracked. I completely forgot about this project.



So, now I gotta find someone to paint this bad boy. Any suggestions? I know someone on here does that kind of work. Anyone?

Nice Bob, can't wait to see it finished. Did you do the drilling yourself?

    Make sure if you fish with it not to tighten the drag down to tight. This is the result of that. Cast metal and you have weakened it even more by drilling it. Looks cool but not when this happens!

Oh No!! Shocked Shocked that's very uncool. I've never seen this happen. I know a lot of guys vanStalize their greenies. Never heard any issues like this before....then again I wasn't looking. Thanks for the heads up   Wink

Here's a 706 that wasn't drilled. It happens quite often on the greenies and black spools. The gold spools are not cast metal and won't do this. The tackle store where I worked quit spooling the green spools due to this happening. The problem is the mono line. It stretches  out if tight then it will retract and it has nowhere to expand so it "explodes" the spool. I blew up a plastic spool once from a cheap reel. Was new and didn't know to just lay the mono onto it. I was so proud cause it looked really nice when I was done but about a minute later it was a different story! Embarrassed

Braid doesn't stretch so "no" it doesn't happen but the older reels were not designed to handle braid since it was not around when they were made. Rollers will not hold up due to no bearings.
