The Story of the cursed shimano TR200G

Got this reel in about a month ago, the client told me that the reel only works in the day, at night it has no drag and no ratchet sound as weird as it sounded I gave it a service.

Washed the reel put new grease in tested the drag checked the ratched , all worked perfectly.
Next day he came and collected the reel I told him that he must take a video if it happens again but the reel is brand new nothing is wrong.

This morning the client returned with he's video and reel having proof of the reel only working at night, with a smile I said let me have another look, this reel is not going to beat me.

Placing it in the freezer to replicate the cold at night, the cursed showed it self, inspecting the reel opening it freezing unfreezing checking the spool and then it hit me, the braid on the spool goes loose when it gets cold shrinking the spool gives the line enough space to turn around

Taking off all the line to see he only wraped the line once around the spool we respooled it for him and lifted the curse


A Torium 30 I serviced for a client as can see before and after photos of the reel completely stripped and wash. Fitted with a gomexus handle as they tried to fix the old handle and failed, after the service and new handle knob the reel feels and looks new


BigBoss 3 6000 rocking a new Gomexus Handle. Even though the BigBoss comes out with very nice knob the client insisted on a gomexus handle as it just feels better.
My personal opinion it does the reel feels like its on a different level

Weight is reduced by 22g doesn't sound like much but it sure is

Well Donald Olivier brought this reel in quite a while back said I must have a look at it when I have time. So as its lockdown time with alot of time on our hands, I had some time to work on the reel.

All that was wrong with the reel after people told him that it is unrepairable is one part was put in wrong and it was a bit dirty

What I like about these reels are that you can clean it to the point where it almost look brand new.

Check the slidshow below and enjoy

And hope all stay safe in these hard times


So Gary went out fishing enjoying a night with his mates, after his first cast he tought his going take the net to try and get some mullet. With having a check on the rod for a bite his rod has disappeared from his sight, running like usain bolt he only sees a line in the sand where bis rod used to be as the fish took off with his rod and reel. Dissapointed as his night of fishing was over he went back home thinking of the one that got away

The next night he got a call from he mate giving him some unbelievable news he got a present from the sea, and it was Gary's Rod and Reel with not to much damage

See photos below of how the reel looked


Out with the old in with the new
