I have a reel with a mismatched side plate, when I palm it the side plate can't be seen and when not in use it's covered, nobody sees the little freak and it works so I don't really mind! lo

Paint is always an option too.
The stuff I used on my Caenan is just now started to look a bit rough, but I didn't let it fully cure and I've put that reel through hell. It's been loaned, dropped, thrown in the lake, has had things dropped on it, and spends a lot of time rattling around in my trunk.

You may want to think about armour plating for it.

Nah, that'd cost more than the reel. It's one of the pawn shop reels. Still great, although one of the arms is now broken off of the star drag.

My pawn shop Caenan was missing the spring for the drag clicker when I bought it, so I just tossed the tiny pawl.
LMG's right, it makes no difference in operation, just removes the audible and tactile feedback when you adjust the drag.

Also, Lawrence, what kind of line are you trying to spool it with, and have you tightened the drag down? We've had anglers here on this forum with years of experience who have thought they'd broken their reels after mistakenly trying to spool braided line and forgetting to use a backing, AND after trying to spool their reels with the drag backed off almost completely.
These are understandable mistakes and can happen to anyone.

It was just mono. Iíve sent the reel off to Mike and he mentioned something about some parts being put together wrong.  Itís already on the way back to me. Hopefully Iíll be reeling in bass with it in no time.

I'm sure that reel will be as good as new when you get it back!

I just finished this curado BSF frankenreel. The customer said go with the side plate we have so the reel was complete disassembled and rebuilt and is now like new. It has worked well for more than 25 years and he can probably get another 25 out of it!



And guys, be careful putting your spools into your reels if you have old style centrifugal brakes! I had to tell a customer the bad news his reel is now junk because he ruined the centrifugal brake pins by shoving the spool into the reel housing without retracting the brake shoes so he bent every pin down towards the spool binding up the brake shoes and he wondered why it does not free spin any longer...
