Recommended Posts

My buddies calcutta been to the shop several times...love my toro winch

will be getting the high speed model for buck tails soon

The HS is good for small bucktails but not the DCG's, All my Toros have been in the shop at least once a couple more than twice, so has my Calcuttas...none are bulletproof...

For my toro it was $16 to ship it and they fixed my striped spool for free in 3 days. It was great service sending it in. I had previously tried to get it fixed at a local (respectable) shop, but abu wouldn't send the parts. It was cheaper and faster just to send it in.

I wonder what they would charge me to go through a couple older reels I have. Do they typically fix whats broke and really look them over? I mean, my drags suck and I think they just need a good going through after 15 years of hard use.

My ABUs have been pretty tough, except the drags have been troublesome.

Bought a Toro last year with the 5.4 gears and I love it so much I may just switch the reel to other rods throughout the day because they are TOUGH to find now.

Yeah, if it was going to cost me the price of a new reel I would just go that route because I am not that attached to them anymore. OVerall they work fine, just the freespool buttons dont engage real well sometimes and the drag is troublesome after a long day. And that is after replacing with the carbon discs. These are older Tournament Pro Abus. I like the smaller round reels, but LOVE the Toro, just wish they didnt dump the 5.4 ratio one.
