Here's my 710 i've been working on, still debating on paint but the finishing touch is going to a 704z power handle.

Not bad, considering no drill press and hand measured! I found a sweet bit for the dremel which helped me get the slots straight after i cut them with the cutting wheel.

Also rj, i did a light sand on the main gear as well as the bushing and man was that a noticable difference, i have't even put grease in it yet, and also the bearing you sent is veryyy smooth!

Trick is not to sand material away, just the gunk that builds up. I also was surprised how well those bearings were made!

hey guys i'm new to the site and opened a thread asking the same question i'm about to ask here. any advice would be much appreciated. i just got a 704z thats in great shape and really want it tricked out. i ordered the manual bail kit yesterday so there is a start, however, i also want to get it drilled, painted, power handle and know, the works. i am machine challenged and don't have the tools. is there anywhere i can send it to have the work done. again any advice is much appreciated. btw, love the work you guys are doing to your reels. i have been looking a long time for this reel in this shape and can't wait to get it done.

RJ that looks sweet!!! I am building myself an AFAW surf rocket that is going to be all black as well. Going totally stealth on it and I am hoping this reel will pair up with it nicely.

Thank you for your diligence on getting this done

I know they took a while, but they had to. I was bitching about the extra work after the Hot Coat, now i can adjust to the thickness of the coat. In the end she came out sweet.

I got it today. I asked for black....why is it purple?




















Just kidding. RJ this thing came out stunning. Just absolutely stunning. And I promise you this thing is not going to sit in a collectors case. It's going to be used. I can feel the mojo in it already.

If you need any references send them to me. Absolutely top notch work
