    I just got a 500 Turn that works great for catching 20-30lb yellowtail. When i was casting jigs at the island for grouper in Bay of LA if seemed like the handle was a bit long to get a smooth fast retrieve. I was wondering if you have a shorted 3" handle that will fit my 500?

    removing spool from reel or taking spool apart and srevice. the top of spool unscrews counter clock wise, remove small screw inside top and unscrew nut. the bottom cover is just a press fit so push the top shaft down and it is apart.

  162. baja tailhunter

    What happens when you adjust the drag when not in free spool ?

    I am calling BS.You can not turn the knob tighter on a Accurate at strike the pressure on threds is to great to do by hand. when you adjust drag pressure all you are doing is moving the knop and not anything to do with drags.
  163. baja tailhunter

    SR DRAGS

    What is the max drag on your SR 6-12-20 and 30? Also the extra washer that comes with the reel is it to be added to stack and will it make drag stronger or is it a lighter or stronger washer that is installed as a replacement to change drag setting?
  164. baja tailhunter

    Just go to sears and buy craftman pliers and when thay rust thay will replace them for free.

    60llb reel

    The Accurate 600 is a great reel.But may come up short on line when loaded with 80# spectra. I think IMO that a better choice is a BX2 30 loaded with 100# spectra then you can top with 50 to 80# with less chance of getting spooled. IMO there is not a fish worth throwing my accurates in after.

    accurate 665??

    the twin drag puts even presure on both sides of the spool. less heat build up, 2 full seperate titanium washer with carbon fiber drags in one reel. avet uses 2 drags on 1 washer faster heat build up. plus the accurates look cool.
  549. baja tailhunter

    reel care

    never store your reels on end before thay are dry or the salt water will not drain and rust the bearings. i wash in warm water with the drag on full, then spin the handle as fast as you can to get the water out of the spool. then back off drag and lay flat till dry.
  550. baja tailhunter

    accurate 665??

    the question was is it a good reel and how does compair to the avet. IMO the accurate is a great reel that is worth the extra cost. list price is 459.00 the only avet in a single speed that size i can find for sale is the lx or jx at 249.00 I like avet and own a sx,mxj, jx, lx and a 50 2...
