Difference in tekota linecounter number colors

Recommended Posts

Anyone know why some have white numbers and some have blue numbers? I'm assuming one model is older than the other possibly. I just ordered a few and they have the white numbers.

white numbers and green numbers.

 

white numbers are the new ones.

 

and I don't want to jinx anything, but all my tekota's with white line counters seem to have problems with the counters ...

 

sometimes not starting, sometimes numbers not lining up....never ever had a single issue with the green number tekota counters.

 

i certainly can confirm there doesn't appear to be any difference in the reel itself, just the counter.

 

my guess is the white number counters were made cheaper for savings....

I have 4 with white numbers and they have been working fine for the last two seasons. Hopefully it is not something that happens as they age. But so far so good.

mine happened right away, brand new.

 

but they weren't bought all at once...over two seasons...so not like one bad batch.

 

i generally fish in colder temps than most, but still had problems over the summer...

 

two biggest problems with the white number counters is the counter simply not starting when you start letting line out and the numbers don't line up....generally the "1"00 number....

 

would gladly trade my five tekotas with the white counters for older tekotas with the green counters....but still no better reel on the market...
