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.

    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
