Didnt wanna spend money on new reel so I decided to upgrade one I had sitting around.
Upgraded bearings
Custom Mono mag addition
Shimano torium 14.
Nerve wrecking drilling a hole in side plate but upgrades transformed reel.

Thanks! Not yet but the spin test alone was a huge difference in rotation time. I added a larger mag that I purchased from Home Depot for 5 bucks.. stops spool very well.
Cant wait to do some casts to tune it to my liking. I've attached where I sourced my mag parts. (See photo).Check him out.Very nice guy. Super responsive.
Cheers

Good job!

Kwang @ SurfCastPro is the Best and has all the right goodies for serious casting.

I just finished Zeta mono magging an Akios Dynamo 656 CT and next up is an old beat up Daiwa Millionaire 6HM.

Had no idea the torium14 had this potential.
