  1. Looking forward to trying it out regards Micky
  2. So idiot me and many other fishers I learned today I clean my reels the wrong way . I’ve now learned to wipe reel over with a damp cloth then a dry cloth . Now the issues with the Diawa Laguna 1000 that I had ( besides the rust I found on the handle ) since 2014 new . The size 1000 of this Diawa Laguna compared to a Shimano Sienna 1000 of the same age it was half the size basically. Made the spool of the reel to small to handle 6 lb braid I was using . This new 1000 reel is a better size . Will clean my reels differently from now on .
  3. Ok this reel I remembered in the tackle shop yep 1000 size bought it and it’s spooled with j8 braid 6 lb hopefully sometime this week I’ll test it out .
  4. Thank you Adrian they had some but not the size range or some reason they didn’t have them in stock this brand they had was a few hundred out of my price range
  5. Thanks Adrian something to look at
  6. I guess I’d better go looking one day when I have time .
  7. I’m getting their Adrian free public transport for me now . I’m trying to do what I do to relieve stress lol then I go lure fishing . Do love my lure fishing concentrating on shallows at present . I’ll get there in the end thanks Adrian
  8. Looks fantastic and cold your a way better fisher than me
  9. Seeing the Diawa Laguna 1000 from around 10 years ago has basically gone to a better place not sure how I missed the corrosion on it . I do have a shimano sienna in better shape from that age and a larger reel I’m using . If I decide to go looking for a better quality 1000 reel which isn’t to much money but great for flicking hardbodies around any clues ? hope that makes sense
