    Are they still in business? I E Mailed them on 4-27 and still have not got a reply. They have a Facebook Page but it is old and not getting any use. I might just get a sheet and make my own!

    Calling them is the best bet to get in touch with them, they are quick to answer and quick to ship.

    It is a husband and wife couple that own and run the business on their own.

    YUMOSHI. My son got them for me. They are supposed to have 12 bearings I found 7 but did not take it all apart. I was tuning the insides up one reel had grease on the drag the other reel was dry. After a little tuning they really feel good. But these are not the first cheap reels that I have put Carbontex drags into. I just measure the size washers I need and look on the chart and go by size not reel. I had other reels that the line would snap before the drag would slip after a few trips. Once I put the good drags in they worked great. So I hope these do to! I saw a article on SUPER TUNING REELS years ago. And any new reels I get I give them the once over. They cast and reel in a lot better after wards it make them feel really smooth fighting a fish.
