ABU GARCIA BAITCASTER

5 posts in this topic

i have an older(10Yrs?) baitcasting reel and the line feed on it is hanging up on the right side of the guide. Is anyone aware of an easy/cheap fix for this issue - i don't think that i need to replace the reel, but need to figure something out.

Thanks-trav

You just need to replace the pawl in it. It's a matter of unscrewing the cap on the bottom side of the levelwind, taking out the old pawl, and putting in a new one. You should be able to get a new pawl for free or a couple bucks from Abu.

I have heard from a couple people that Abu is very good to deal with and they are fast to get parts out to you. They have the parts breakdowns on their HSOforum to look at and find the right part that you need.

First look to see if there is some gunk (scientific term) on the worm gear that the pawl rides in. Might be that there is and cleaning it out is faster than getting a new pawl.

Too bad they don't have the secret compartment with spare pawl like the old pfleuger supreme had. :-)

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
