Re: C.P. care, how to?

ive had my green Streamside for 2yrs now and havent needed to clean it yet. the bearing reels are pretty closed in :thumbup: which means alot less cleaning and greasing


one thing to watch out for though is: the bloody screw that holds the reel together does loosen so make sure you have a small screwdriver with you when fishing. I actually had mine pop apart while reeling it in one day. my dad managed to find the screw, put it back together and kept fishing otherwise it would have been a bad day.

Re: C.P. care, how to?

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.

Use the BLUE loctite. It's not permanent.

Re: C.P. care, how to?

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:

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.

You shouldn't be putting anything on your bearings...Oil, grease mean dirt and grinding crappy performance...leave um alone...

Kingpin, when you get good enough with your islander...you can move up to an Angspec. ;D let me know..mine is collecting dust!!!

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?
