Stradic

8 posts in this topic

I have a Shimano Stradic. Best spinning reel I’ve ever purchased. It’s about two years old. I’ve run it threw two Mn. Bass master trails, and a trip to Canada that would destroy any normal real. The eye’s there are unreal, you’d swear they were crossed with small mouths.
The problem I’m having with it now is that it wants to go on back real every now and then on it’s own, but the lever on the back is in the off position. How do I fix it/?

I use them too, Open Water and on Ice.

I haven't had your problem, but if it's still happening after the cleaning, I'd ship it back to the factory for repair.

Does anyone have info on where to send this, or what the time line is for getting it back? This reel is like my right hand! I don't know if i can get by with out it.

I own 3 of them and they definately are a great reel. I have had mine repaired and cleaned at a rod and reel repair place in Bemidji MN. The name is Seagull rod and reel. It is worth a shot and had good service there too.

Shimano.com, has a list of service centers where you could send your reel.

I cleaned my two Stradic's last year for the first time in about 3-4 yrs. They were starting to "stick" a bit. They are not to bad to clean if you are mechanically inclined. Essentailly I recommend you have a large flat bright area to work and some good quality small screwdrivers. Go slowly taking off only the minimum amount of parts at a time. Wash/Spray each part down with Rem oil and then use youre aircompressor to blow off all the excess oil/debris and then reassemble. They were just like new when I got done.

Or like some of the other folks said if you are not comfortable doing this most dealers will service them for you for a nominal fee.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to give the cleaning another try. I was scared at first because of the way the bearings wear sealed, it looked like i needed to know how to disect a transmission to figure it out. What the heck i'm sure i can pay someone to put it back together if i screw it up to bad. If not i guess i get to buy a new one.

    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
    • That's rough DrJ, were you on public or private land?   
    • They're finally playing someone outside of the central division tonight, so we'll see what happens. Did Sano get suspended for throwing a punch yesterday?
