  • Time for a 325' reel

    I think I maxed out my mini, lol. Glad I'll be ordering a 325' color full size from AJ Coleman this week.

    There is a pretty new one on ebay and I think it comes with a top of the line digital monitor too price was up there but maybe near the price of a 325 reel new and you get the cs1000, didnt look real long at the ad though for shipping etc.
    I have one and they are heavy too

          I'll be getting the full size reel soon too. Mini is great, but it's undersized a lot on my jobs

            I'm sure you know what you need and the product as well as anyone. A couple of specs to think about though. It's what I would think about for situations I get into.

            Your current mini:

            Length- 200'
            Weight- 24.5 lbs.
            Reel Frame Diameter- 20"


            The 325' Full Size:

            Length- 325'
            Weight- 53 lbs.
            Reel Frame Diameter- 32"


            You can figure out the rest as to the benefits and drawbacks.

              Been trying to tell him its a monster of a reel. Ive rarely needed more than 200' and even more rare to push out 200'with turns.

              I have a brand new 325' b & w thats never been out of the box.

                I'd be interested if color. With what I would use it for it would have to be color.

                  A color camera head will screw right in.

                        I start getting issues at about 100' in on concrete or clay sewers with my mini. I definitely need the full size.

                          Here's the secret. Use a ball skid and wrap electrical tape on the front side of the ball skid closest to the camera head. Then run water(as you always should) but add a 5 gallon bucket of water.....it could be through a toilet, cleanout or vent. Put foward push on the push rod and when that 5 gallon slug of water hits it, it'll take off another 10-15' easy but you gotta push fast and short, hand over hand. Works amazing and I've gotten consistently out to 160'+ with this method. Told ridgid about it but they didn't seem interested. The reason I'm going full size is because I'm often watched by my customer and the job has to be smooth and seamless.
