      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

ABU parts

Recommended Posts

Not sure how, but some of the threads on the nut that holds the handle on one of my 7000's stripped. Originally I thought i bent the handle but figured out I got a bad nut...

I may try to find a fine thread one at a hardware store, but if I can't do any of you know who sells those parts. Not the best time of the year to send a reel off for service.

thanks - erik

Try the Bass Specialty shop on HWY 65 in Fridley. I understand they do reel repair nowdays. I ordered parts from Mikes reel repair in Canada and it took like 3 weeks to get them. I won't be ordering again from Canada.

Erik... just go to Abu Garcia HSOforum, get the address... then on the box, write down this "Abu Garcia Attn: Reel Service Dept" along with the rest of the address and ship it... make sure you add a note explaining whats wrong with your reel... and if its under warranty, they'll repair it or, more likely, replace it

With insurance and confirmation, amount comes to about $8.50 maybe less... and the turn-around time is quick...

I blew out two of my 7000iC3 in August and both got replaced within a week after them receiving it... and one of those replaced blew out again... I shipped it back last Thursday and they got it on Monday... so the new one should be back before I head to Mille Lacs on Oct 14th...

Hope this helps...

If you're out of the warranty period and want to fix it yourself go to their HSOforum and look at the online diagrams for your particular reel and get the parts numbers. Then do as follows:

Thank you for contacting Pure Fishing concerning parts for your reel. In order to ensure that we are providing the correct parts for your exact reel, we must have the following information when you call.

• Reel Model Name (e.g. 5500C-3, M300, C100B)

• Reel Foot Number (this is like a serial number, stamped on the underside of the mounting foot)

• List and quantity of parts needed

• It is best to have your reel with you for additional information.

Once we have this information, we can determine if the parts you need are available and the cost involved. If you’d like additional information concerning these parts, wish to place an order or would prefer to contact your local authorized service center, please call us at (800) 228-4272 (M-F 7:30 A.M. –4:30 P.M. CST).

We accept Visa or MasterCard. If you do not have a credit card, you can send a check or money order for your reel parts. Please enclose a list of parts you are purchasing. After we receive your payment, we will send out the order.

Thank you for your loyalty to our reels. We will be looking forward to hearing from you.

Good Fishing,

Customer Service

P.S. If the parts are not available, we will offer you an accommodation price on a new reel with submission of your old reel.

I'm sure its not secret, but thumbs up to ABU for taking care of me quickly. Once I got off my arse and called them they put the parts in the mail and the reel is as good as new. Now I just gotta find an ice fishing shack that will hold me and a 9ft HVY action rod... wink
