glad it worked!!! anyone else give it a try yet?

btw, keep the drag setting under 5 pounds, preferably around 2.5-3 pounds. high drag settings, probably greater then 8 pounds, will shred the soft brass main gear. thanks! alan

Finally got around to giving this a go. The pictures and instructions were excellent to work with! Thanks again, Alan.

I've got it on a Lamiglas MBC86MH, spooled with 14# super braid, with visions of stripers swimin' through my mind.

These reels are easy to put together. I recently figured it out myself for the first time, just cleaning the reel - not replacing drag washers. But your post has helped confirm that I did it correctly. thanks

I'm getting a 5600 and will use it for stripers so I will definately do this.
