I really love old tackle and have a collection of old Reels at home. The one that wobbles the most, is the DAM Quick 550N. I glued a led weight in the rotor once, which gave the rotor almost perfect balance. But to be honest, just as @Baitman said, one feels the wobbling only when the reel is not fitted to a rod.

Iíve balanced all sorts of engine parts and stuff like that normally with the use of various adds. Iím not that bothered about the wobble to be fair just thought Iíd do it if it was easy these are only my spare set of reels so not that bothered was just giving them abit of an update

When people spin an older reel, maybe in a tackle shop, and it has a bit of wobble it worries them.
Spin a modern shimano and it's a piece of pure engineering genius, like a Swiss watch.

But put that old reel on a rod and reel in under tension and it's absolutely fine.

Have you balanced anything in the past?

Can you make a photo of the inside of the rotor with the spool removed?

I suppose you could try a bit of tungsten putty until you find the right spot, then maybe use the stick on weights they use for balancing alloy wheels.

Hi all does anyone on here know or have any tips for balancing the rotor on Daiwa tournament/ss reels, I see Weston offer it as part of their servicing but would love to know if it can be done at home and if so any tips on how cheers all
