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.

    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
