Reel Repair Help

7 posts in this topic

This week I had two reels break on me. One of them is a C3 7000 which I had the worm gear bend on me. Anyone know where I can get a replacement worm gear? [Edit: Called Abu and they are sending a replacement worm gear total cost of $12.97]

The other is a C3 5600. This one i'm not sure what broke. I am able to reel line in, but if I take my hand off the handle it will spin backward allowing the spool to also spin backward. Any thoughts? Or any suggestions on where to bring it to have it looked at?

Where are you located? If nothing else, you could send your reels to Pure Fishing. They're great to deal with and are usually very quick.

South Metro. I'd like to find a place within driving distance so I can be back on the water sooner than later if at all possible.

Sounds like the anti-reverse bearing went out on your 5600... Nothing you really can do but to look for a replacement face plate for that reel as you cannot replace the AR bearing... its pressed in the face plate... Thats how my first Abu was no-good...

I don't know how much you fish, but if you can afford it I would throw that ABU'S in the garbage and start over. You will find yourself putting money into those year after year. Try out a 400B. Just my two cents!

brings back memories. I second PostFrontal, Wayzata Bait, give them a call. I also second esoxhunter, switched over to a shimano curado's and calcutta's and have been fishing with no worries.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
