Abu 7000

Hi, I have an Abu red Ambassadeur 7000 reel that I bought many years ago. Can anyone tell me anything about it? I believe it needs some repair since when it retrieves line is uneven on the spool. Is this worth a repair?

 

Thanks

No, it is not worth fixing. Send it to me and I will dispose of it properly...redface.gif

 

 

 

In Jersey try contacting Paul at Grumpy's Tackle in Seaside Park--he's a great Abu man.

 

 

 

Good luck--

It just might be a case of the spool not being centered. Use both of the tension caps on the side plates to center the spool before you take it to a shop. Even then, all you're likely to need to repair it is the little pawl that sits inside the level wind guide. Last time I bought some, they were less than a buck apiece.
