SERVICING — Shimano Aernos 1000FA

Post by LLCC »

I must admit first, that I'm a noob at servicing modern spinning reels although the first reel I ever stripped and serviced successfully was a Fixed Spool Shakespeare in 1976. However, my path went down the way of "conventional reels" and there, I had spent my time at, servicing the Ambassadeurs, Penn Internationals and the Shimano Calcuttas and more recently, the likes of Antares, Zillion and Alphas.

So it is with trepidation that I approach a modern spinning reel, after having spent an hour puzzling over how to strip apart a Daiwa Freams 2500. Armed with that experience, it was with equal caution and restraint that I chose to break the servicing of this reel down to 3 sittings; when I was finally compelled to service it after several visits to the sea.

I chose to break up the servicing into (i) The Spool and Drag system, (ii) The Bail and Line Roller and (iii) The body. Since I had serviced (i) and (ii) earlier and had not documented the process, I will talk about how I stripped and reassembled the body this time. On a later date, I shall add to this step by step, how I did the first two stages.

This is what it looks like after the reel is stripped. To my pleasant surprise, it was not complicated at all, and I grabbed the opportunity to relube the bearings.

The full step by step with photos are detailed in the link below:
