At station #7, i insert the lever drag handle, the preset knob, two bushings, and a quadrant, though this part's function still escapes me. The reel looks complete, so it's on to situation #8, where I polish it, spin the spool to check for smoothness, and check the clicker. Next I hook it up to a digital scale, set the lever on "strike," and preset it to 21 pounds of tension. Finally, it's time : I shift the reel into freespool, put on the clicker, and turn it slowly. Click...click...click... Then a rousing spin for the cescendo...zzzzzzzzz. Ahhh, i love that sound. I record the serial number and send it down to the packer, who drops it into a box with a manual and parts list.
