Oh, I always make sure I have the schematics by my side LOL.
The Metaniums are some of the easiest to take apart, that is one reason I love them, not sure about he Chronarch.

I usally do use the hook keeper but wanted to take a cool pic :big grin:

Its the 852c and it works excellent for smaller sized jerkbaits, I use mine for jerks, shakeyhead and tubes.
The other rod is a 842 GLX and its amazing also...

That is a sweet reel. I love the handle addition and the clear corks.

I like to call this set duality :big grin: The Brenious was all Royal Purple at one time, the Chronarch was all gun mental but I decided it mix and match the parts and use orange parts I had laying around. A handle will be in the future for the Brenious .You probably have seen the Chronarch from the XXX Orochi forum. Enjoy ;)

My recently acquired Citica E. This is a BNIB reel. I decided to mod it a bit to give some really nice performance and aesthetic upgrades. Inside I replaced the bushing on the driveshaft with a bearing. Swapped the gears out for CuradoE7 gears. JDM Shimano spool bearings. Carbontex drag upgrade. HawgTech handle and cork knobs. And last but not least, I searched for the Curado200E drag star that is obsolete. Rounded all the parts to switch the drag stars. I use it for frogging with 50lb braid.
