In preparation of my upcoming Panama trip, I shipped my 665 and kaikon to Alan Tani for service.. Glad I did, as a had at least one bad bearing in each reel. Jared's double amberjack catch about fried the drags on the kaikon. So new carbotex drags are there now.. They are good as or better than new.. I had him put one of his handles on the 665 and I love it.. with the new bearings, the freespool is much better. Anyway... He had them serviced and shipped back to me promptly.. Thanks Alan. Now if April 23rd will just get here... I can put them to the test..
