Need instructions on cleaning a Shimano Calais 4X8 DC

Recommended Posts

Here is a don't...

Don't do anything send it in to Shimano®....

I don't do any DC reels, and I have 25 yrs doing reels. I spoke with Shimano® on the Calcutta DC's and unless you are one of their warranty centers it is advised you send all DC reel's into the factory..

Just my .02¢ from the bench....

Thanks Reel Mechanic.

I will do that when speckled trout start hitting inland. I really don't want to tie the reel up right now, because its great for throwing weightless trick worms into the wind.

It's working almost okay, the tension knob has gotten real critical to set (just a minute adjustment goes from to tight to too loose). It wasn't like that when I first started using it

I don't have a schematic they won't provide one on this reel. So I can't give any comments on what could be the cause.....If it has spool shaft end shims I would look there, and see if they are worn, if the reel doesn't have them then I am guessing and I don't like to do that...

Good Luck & Tight Lines!!!!
