So I was looking into some easy mods to do for my SS65 and came across a very simple, reversible mod.

I just did this mod using some 6lb Mono fishing Line, and did roughly 4 wraps weaved in different patterns throughout the needlewheel, and I can't believe just how much of a difference this mod makes. Make sure you use Mono fishing line, as Braided line is very difficult to tie off, and the knots can easily come loose. I had a very big issue with getting this skimmer to dry-skim, and this simple mod has it dry skimming very well! i'll get some pictures later on today!
