The engage mechanism in my thunnus 4000 spinning reel was not locking after the bait setting was disengaged.  I've gotten used to my tranx and avet but this little spinning reel has monstrous capabilities supposedly if a get a monstrous hookup opportunity someday.  The list they replaced for 37$. seems like they overhauled it and seems basically new.  They threw in a new spool as well.

4-6 weeks turnaround.  The only concern I had was not putting a reference note in the shipping envelope.  Trusted the USPS and did not pay for insurance.  I put the repair reference # on the outside of the envelope and possibly one other #.  Next time I will put all info. inside.

So far Kokotat fits that support as well.  I went on a study of what the anti reverse switch is for on some spinning reels including this one and found some funny explanations.

Nice! Shimano is good stuff - I am (was) big in mountain biking - solid stuff there too.

Love me a bait feeder reel, just makes sense for so many applications.  What rod do you pair that with?

So far Lamiglas x11 8'6" 12-25# 1/2-1 1/2 oz. or some of my older fenwicks for Sabiki.... :smt006
