Use the BLUE loctite. It's not permanent.Shane said:You should put a small dab of loctite on that screw HOOK, itll still be able to be backed out with a screw driver but it will never work its self free again. I like to take a look inside my KF after each trip to make sure its clean. Its easier to give it a quick wipe to clean out fresh borax rather than trying to scrub out crap thats been in there for months or weeks. Plus it helps prevent premature wear and I'm kinda anal about things that cost a good chunk of change and keeping them clean.
HOOK what type of fish would you be targeting with that pin? Id be scared of warping the drum with any fish of a decent size.HOOK said:yes well if i fished with roe as much as you Shane i would be cleaning mine all the time. I rather fish artificials than real stuff :thumbup:
and yes i guess i could put some loctite on the screw just never bothered cause it had never came loose before.
check out the Bob James lightweight, that will be my next pin reel :thumbup:
Hooking a hot fish, then "applying the brakes" could warp it, as could snagging up badly then trying to break your main line. What type of fish would you be targeting with that reel?HOOK said:how the hell would you warp the drum?? the line comes off the reel straight does it not :cheers: I dont see how using a reel to fish with would ever warp it
