    I did not replace the drags. From what I was told the 500's do not have sticky drags like the larger reels. I did not have any issues with them on the fish I caught this year.
  7. 4 Tekota 500 LC reels I have for sale 4 like new condition tekota 500 line counter reels. The reels were bought new this spring and are spooled with 40lb braid. I found a small scratch on one of the side plates and a couple very minor scuffs on the plastic line counter one 2 of them. I would rate these 9.5 out of 10 or better. 125.00 for each reel, free shipping if you buy 2 or all 4. Call or text 716-673-6614.
  8. https://www.greatlakesfisherman.com/fishing-hunting-outdoors/topic/15617-reel-fill-calculator/ You have to set up an account to be able to download it. I have found it to be very accurate.
  9. Will do. I was hoping to get out for walleye a couple more times in the next couple weeks so I will probably put them up for sale in a couple weeks. I have 6 total but will probably sell 4 of them. I bought them new this spring and are all in like new condition.
  10. I had looked at both previously a few months back and decided to go with 19 strand myself.
  11. I'm pretty sure but not certain they will be about the same. From the info I could find online, torpedo 7 strand and 19 strand had the same diameter at .015" according to one website that sold both.
  12. According to the reel fill calculator that I use it shows that 250 yds of 19 strand will fill a Tekota 500 to 100% capacity. I am actually going to sell my Tekota 500's soon and buy Tekota 600's so that I can put 1000 ft of 19 strand on them for divers. I tried using my 500's with braid this year and had a couple issues with fleas which convinced me to switch. I primarily fish walleyes on erie but want reels that can pull double duty for salmon also.
  13. I don't think a 24v system would work for what you want to do. I have a 24v 80 lb terrova that I use only to steer my fishmaster. At walleye speeds, around 2 mph, I can get a solid 6 hours or more of use with the motor on 3.5 or so to help steer the boat. When I use it for salmon trolling at 2.5mph or more I have to bump up motor speed to 5 or 6 and am lucky to get 4 or 5 hours out of it. There is no way i could get 5 or 6 hours out of mine if I was using it to pull the boat without my 9.9 for propulsion in any kind of wind or waves. Maybe if the lake was flat. I have 2 30 series AGM batteries that power the terrova. I have no experience with a 36v system.
  14. They have a couple different options but the one I listed is around $400 I believe. I saw that they offer a foot pedal that can be used with an electric drill which should make it easier to use. I will only be re- spooling 6 or 8 reels at a time which is why I was leaning towards buying this setup. If your going to buy a cordless battery operated drill look at Ridgid. I have several of their products and they offer a lifetime guarantee on the drills and batteries which is why I purchased them.
