  1. Yeah, I was intrigued by the double handle Nasci for $60 ... but I definitely don't need it lol
  2. Just arrived. Perfect unused condition. Incredible steal @ $73.50... now to sell my Curado K and get an ultralight Vanford
  3. *IN THE TIME IT TOOK ME TO POST HERE, IT SHOWED SOLD OUT* Walmart just had Curado 150 MGL $73.50. Shipped and sold by Walmart. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Shimano-Fishing-CURADO-MGL-150-Low-Profile-Reels-CUMGL150/789639749?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222227789639749_167635139001_19190274142&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=704237339194&wl4=pla-1409824743790&wl5=9028322&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=789639749&veh=sem&gad_source=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI56rQ2sCkhwMVhHJ_AB3j3wHhEAQYBiABEgJRyvD_BwE Not sure if it was a pricing mistake or it was legit sold out but I picked one up and am hoping it doesnt get cancelled.
  4. Looks like they only got into the marketing business tbh
  5. So to confirm, pinion and bearing are out of the reel but fused together? If yes, then a 50/50 of acetone and trans fluid is the best penetrant I've found.
  6. IMO those two sizes aren't different enough to make a difference when it comes to line memory or casting distance. If bass fishing, I also don't see a scenario where you need more line capacity. Using the right type of line and preventing line twist (making sure line roller works, closing bail manually) have a far bigger impact on line management than spool size.
  7. I believe that trophy bass hunter Bill Murphy mentioned something about most of the largest bass all sharing spots as a feature. I may be mistaken though.
  8. They should be screwed in tightly. I've messed with knobs on a handful of Fuegos and all have tightened fully. Whenever I experience that issue it usually had to do with the position of the shims. On some it was bushing > shim > handle > bushing, others had the shim in other places such as nearer to the screw. I messed with the handles a ton and never really could determine why the order made a difference but it did.
  9. I wouldn't say they're necessarily bad quality. I have a Mod/Med casting rod going on about 7 years now? that has help up perfectly.
  10. Just seeing Ultegras for $100ish ... great deal! I'd definitely jump on that if I needed/wanted one
  11. I would make one of those a MH/M or H/M for deep cranks
  12. A tiny bit past hand tight with retainer over the top ... sounds like you dont have the retainer?
