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.

    • The new ones don't stay in place very well either. I don't think you would want to put your weight on one either but they work for what they are. Now I kind of seem to remember seeing them at their shop, one the reasons they were redoing them was because enough air didn't go thru them too well.  I think a product right between these two designs would be perfect.Thanks for the reply, 
    • If this happens I will move to Canada but not for the healthcare, just the fishing. Any more bailouts and I riot, we all should, I don't care what they are for.
    • Nah, you and your glorious leader have already shown that you are intimidated by men in tights.
    • Well despite our so so play that last couple of weeks we are still doing pretty well. Really wish we could have closed out that game against Vancouver this road trip but its a long season and we will win/lose games that should have gone the other way many times. Wild are currently sitting 6th in the conference, we have the best goal differential in the west (+16) and 4 games in hand on the two teams behind us. Read somewhere our advanced stats are good too. Dubs is playing amazing, our D is alwasy solid. Scoring is still somewhat of a issue but we are sitting middle of the pack in the NHL so as long as the D holds we should be ok.
    • Those are the 1st gen covers. They done stay in place, at all. Definitely not child or dog proof. I bought the new honeycomb version at the show and they seem way better. 
    • Start one? Bahahahahahaha!
    • Well the teriyaki sticks are very good, I made them to Curlys recipe but with powdered milk (RH1) and more water to compensate. Then I made the pepper sticks but instead of water I used Grainbelt Nordeast, close to three bottles for a ten pound batch. I also added powdered milk, minced garlic from a jar and mustard seed.  What a great flavor! These mixes are proving to be tasty.    I'm smoking 3 loins of canadian bacon on Saturday.    Come on ice!
    • You guys need to start an HSO drama club..    
    • Just hold the bottom of the ducer to your ear with the unit on and if you hear it clicking it's good. If not it's junk.
    • Where did you get those heavy duty hole cover with the holes in them? I just checked their site and don't see them. I might have to stop over at their office today.
