Doesn't help either having my right thumb but in a splint today by the Physio as I have De Quervains syndrome.

your not the only one to have a crap day. although 240m isnt too bad a distance to say i was disappointed was an understatement. i think its back to basics to try to sort out my timing. i can hit 240m without the wind.

I thought it was just me having a bad day ,I found the strong wind hard to deal with
ended up with 228m but felt i could have done a lot better . But now know what i have to

Picked up my new Zziplex last night and also had a 2 hr lesson in reel tuning. It wasn't suprising that I was not getting any better. A new set of bearings having been flushed out completely, which is an art in itself, lightly oiled and it now runs for 4min 35 secs. Mag got adjusted as well. The old bearings, although hybrid, were obviously cheap as he showed me the difference between the old and the new.

Then started on my fishing reels, can't wait to use them Very Happy

Or making some lovely birdies Laughing Thats a huge run time on the bearings. Where did the bearings come from out of interest. I noticed on mine that one bearing runs well whilst the other is very sluggish.

"RIOVISTA" sells bearings on Ebay for all reels, and cheap, but good(ABECS).
he lives on portland. if you want to see a few bearings pay him a visit. he literally has bearings by the hundreds of thousands.

They did come from the USA.........and I would probably go with Richards hypothesis in that I will probably have more birds nests than getting 250m Very Happy Will just have to go steady and see how I get on but it WILL be fun. Smile Smile

As long as when you spin them up with mags full on they only run for about 10 secs then it makes no difference how long they run with mags fully off, it just proves that they are running very smooth........ just dont be too greedy winding them off in the middle of a cast Wink

Thanks Shane but he set up my mag as well so it runs around 10-11 secs with mags full on and I have scope to take them a bit further in for more braking. The best thing I found out about cleaning bearings is that they all come with dust covers on them which are fixed on by a spring clip (and fiddly to get off). To clean them properly u need to take these off and wow, what a difference it makes.
