    Its too bad they dont machine the gearbox forward. That would make for a killer upgrade at that point.

    Some pics with the new handle and crank. Mike sent two cranks, one long, one short and two knobs one straight and one angled. This is/can be a complete kit now. The only exterior parts that are stock are one screw and the star drag (that I tried to t/u with a sharpie). I will strip the finish the star and powdercoat it when I get a little time.

    Hey Spize909,
    Just wondering if you could you ask Mike if he sells just the main frame for the SL20SH with the screw holes for using a reel clamp? I've got the older frame and was wondering if he would sell just the frame. I've sent a few emails but have never received a response. If he made just the frames without side plates, it would greatly be appreciated.
    Thanks!!

    You can use the Daiwa cap but a little bit of a mod needs to be made to it. I don't know the handle arm you have but I have a Tiburon and with my handle a screw came that is is used for the Tib handle and the nut cap. On my handle the screw was bigger than the stock one from Daiwa and the hole for the screw cap needed to me moved closer to the gear shaft by a few mm's. First with a rotary tool I plunged an area closer to the shaft in the plastic nut cap. Then I drilled a little wider hole with the same tool for the thicker screw from Tib.

    I don't have a pic right now on what the new area in the nut cap looks like but it is pretty easy to do, well at least for the handle I have. If you have the same thing doing on with your reel I can take a pic or two that shows better what I did, if you think you need it.

    This last pic showed the cap better on the handle arm but the pic was taken before the excess grease was wiped out of the cap.

    Just saw this. PM sent. I think I can help you out.

    Got my X done now too. Here's a pic of it that also shows the size comparison with the old frame.

    Going to make a entirely new design to the SL & SlX series. 20's,30's, 50's.

    They will be a very new unique design, addressing all the input from people who bought my product over the last bunch of years.

    Thanks to those who bought my product.

    The balance of the current product inventory is going fast.

    Solid as a rock.

    Mike,

    Details please! I'm buying a SLX20SHA just so I can upgrade it with your frame kit. Is a preorder available? Any ideas on when they will be ready to ship?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    as long as it takes to break down a reel all the way to clean/service it.

    Time it takes depends on how knowledgeable you are with the breakdown of the internals of this reel. If you service you're own reels, this should take you between 20-45 mins depending on how careful you are with cleaning off the old grease and applying new lube on the internals. Also, some people grease the drags and take apart the bearings to oil them up, so that may take a little more time. Go over the instructions a bunch of time until you feel comfortable: http://www.socal-fishing-hunting.com/SL20SH.html
