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.

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.

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
