Default Re: Modify Your Old Pfluger 1494

I still have a couple of old 1498's with the "Kreh" conversions done to them. I'd almost forgotten that I still had those old war horses until I read your post.
For the younger folks; this consisted of opening up the back of the reel so you could apply extra drag by inserting a finger against the spool (no exposed rims in those days) and epoxy gluing a SS, 1/4X20 nylock nut 180 degrees from the crank knob as a counter-balance.
