I used to be a big gear head in my teens and 20s and spent a lot of time wrenching on and modifying cars, reels are much simpler by comparison, and a heck of a lot cheaper too. What I spent modifying my cars back in the 90s and 00s, I could've bought my entire tackle collection many times over. That's not counting the tickets for driving like an idiot either lol 1 hour ago, bulldog1935 said: @Eric 26 Especially Ambassadeurs - they're just so much fun to work on, everything is simple and makes sense, and large enough to handle without tweezers and Ott magnifier. First off I’m out of reactions so those will have to come later. More importantly I appreciate the words of encouragement as far as working on these reels, as I’ve said before my first foray into taking apart/maintenance on my reel resulted in all the parts being put back but a reel that just wouldn’t operate properly. Although an inappropriate rant, as for the Abu reel I’m referencing this is one of the many reasons I no longer speak to my sister in law due to my brothers fishing collection being promised but never delivered to my family after his death. Seeing all these cool looking round reels on here has me thinking I may have to keep my eyes open for one after all. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
