    Regrip to deckhand... advice needed

    all those decoration wraps look nice but the bottom line is that tuna cord or paracord get old real fast if you actually catch fish on them with any amount of drag. My 2 cents: Heavy drag/rail use: Shrink over cord Under 40lb: shrink over cork tape. Your hands and cap rail will thank you.

    3m or sea shield products for buffing, Colonite products for wax. I prefer insulator wax. But it is really all about the soap you use.

    this is a perfect opportunity to have a very scientific side by side comparison of both reels. as others have stated, set both drags at the same value, set each handle at the same orientation (pref 90* to angle of resultant load, ie drag pressure) and do a static test of how much force is needed...
  173. brice


    not true at all. you have parasitic power (torque) loss from friction in the gear train. increased gear mesh (helical cut) also increases the "smoothness* of the transition from tooth to tooth and results in a more fluid power transfer.

    there should be a "star" shaped hole either in the middle or on the side of the top of the capstan. use your star key that you still have to unscrew it (haha yeah right) or jam crap in there until you can turn it.

    What would a pair of used like new Fraser-Volpe cost?

    i haven only used the fraser's a couple of times vs the stabis 'a whole buncha times' so i can't comment on that. i can say hands down i like the fujinon's better though. maybe i just haven't used the FVs enough to get used to them. have you used both?
  552. brice

    What would a pair of used like new Fraser-Volpe cost?

    if you do end up looking at the fujinons, the thing to check for (read, the part that breaks) is the engagement ring actuated by the switch/knob on the side. if it is hard to actuate then it is on it's way out. there is a fix for this issue when it breaks, but it's expensive.
