My views I can see the photos without right jigging back and forth.
Quote from: bnz on February 03, 2014, 07:13:40 PMThanks for chiming in Justin! One question for you? Have you guys thought about sleeving the reels at the factory? I found that sleeving will increase freespool as well as any binding at high drag. I know on my two reels without the sleeving only at full drag do I get a little binding. I've got my brass tubing on the way and would be glad to make a few extra for you to try on your reels too.

I realize that the reels are now shipped with a back up mechanical dog, but if the ARB bearing gets some salt water in it, it's going to sound and feel horrible -- if it doesn't seize completely.

A handle nut lock could be designed to fit with the aesthetic of the reel. Finally, aluminum screws will reduce corrosion -- but so will grease. And steel screws are much, much stronger. These are all easily fixable problems, but until they are fixed I won't be fishing Release reels.
