Shimano Stella 2500FA

Recommended Posts

Well....it's official.  I finally wore out my Stella that had been a gift many years ago.  It has caught an unbelievable amount of fish from Steelhead, Salmon, bass and a number of others but yesterday fishing for smallies if I didn't have my left hand on the handle it would back reel when I set the hook.  Or when I pop the line when snagged....it happens then too.  Now the ol girl also started making grinding noises and the handle is loose.  (yes...screw is tightened)

Ohhhhhhhh....gosh.  I called Shimano a couple weeks ago and it sounds like there are not many parts available for the ol girl so am debating wether to send in and gamble on the money.  Believe it's around 30 bucks....not bad but just don't want to throw away if ya know what I mean.

Thanks for listening....(these are morning thoughts over coffee)

:)

Call @Delaware Valley Tackle and talk to him about it. It sounds to me like there's probably just a part or two worn out, or maybe even needing cleaned. No way I'd even be considering throwing a Stella out.

Thank you much....will do.  I was hoping to maybe hear some positive notes.  Would not have thrown away.....it would probably get hung on the wall with a thank you for your service plaque!!

Sounds like it been a good friend to ya. Id definatley send it to Mike to see what he can do. Shimano may or maynot have the parts, but Mike may have other resourses that do, Hope you get it back in your arsenal soon :)

The AR is likely just dirty and should still be replaceable. I'll have to see the handle to see what's up there.
