    Re: Any sniffers good with taking apart reels and putting them back together LoL

    I have a pair of komodo, they served me well it's been 2 years and they work fine. But I know how to service them. I also got daiwas which work great. All you really need to do is open them up and clean them. Please go to Alan's website awesome Information.

    I had a lot of coldwaters and SST's get returned. On the Coldwaters the drag would losen up on their own and the SST's the reel seats would break free. Only okuma stuff i would trust is their big salt water stuff cause i know it's proven. Oh and a regular customer of mine had a komodo and thought it was one of the biggest POS he's ever owned. Very much a YMMV situation but more often than not i've seen them get ready to be thrown in the garbage.

    Re: Any sniffers good with taking apart reels and putting them back together LoL

    Ok, had me curious because I hadn't looked at my new ones yet so I opened one up. Handle side just below the line counter is a chrome cross bar that is knurled and slotted for a screwdriver, unscrew that. Don't need to pull it out, just far enough the threads are released from the clicker side. Rotate the outside cover on the clicker lever side. Will only rotate one direction. Gently pull the cover off. There you have it, opened up. I don't have my smaller screwdriver set to go any further but it looks like one additional screw to remove the black plastic "cover" to expose the clicker and a second screw to remove the clicker gear if it is broken.

    Or you could take it to FW or Gee. Not sure on the low profiles but the new clicker assembly for the 203s is available online for $4.99. However, if you call Okuma chances are they will send you one free.

    I've had good luck with Gee reel repair. He's located in Sacramento Pro Tackle.
