Sweet. I am in need of  a relatively inexpensive, emphasis-on-strength reel for my 7'6" XH XF Carolina rig rod. Have had my eye on these for a while.

With the weight of the reel, it will help to balance the rod.

I have been tossing this thing around for a few days. I have to say, being that its a little bigger than most my reels, its in no way uncomfortable for me to fish. In fact, being all metal construction its not over bearingly heavy. It makes the reel very solid feeling, similar to my TD Zillion reels. Im gonna try and hook up with some fish this weekend. Need to give this and the Conquest a workout.

I bought the same reel on Ebay and loved it until, after catching a few bass, the reel malfunctioned.  The handle was hard to turn and actually spun backwards.  Looking at your post, I felt like I could tear mine down and fix what seemed broken.  I was wrong... I have cleaned and replaced the drag washers, springs and drag bearing but no luck.  I still have the same problem.  I lubed some of the internals with Penn reel grease and put a small amount on the washers.  Is this my problem?  Any suggestions?  ~b~

If your handle is turning backwards, your anti reverse bearing is shot.

I replaced the Roller Clutch Bearing with part number BNT2925.  Is this the right replacement part? When I put the sleeve inside the bearing and try to turn it backwards as seen in the picture it does not turn (works correctly.)  Is there something I should be aware of when putting it all back together?  I think it might have had a little oil on it the first time.  I am going to clean up and reassemble and see if I get better results.  Any input would be appreciated so I can hurry and be back to  ~gf.

I just called my supplier and told them to send me one for the reel. Not sure what the part number was..

Hey! I just bought one of these reels off eBay. And it's making a weird sound coming from inside. I've never cleaned any of my reels before (yes I'm ashamed) but I was wondering if you could help me out??

Please let me know. Much appreciated.

What kind of sound, and when does it do it?

It makes the sound whenever the handle is turned. And it just sounds like a bearing is broken or something of that sort.

There is a bearing that is next to the AR bearing that may need replacement, or the pinion bearing may need replacing. I have both in stock.
