Shimano reel parts?

Rate this topic

8 posts in this topic

The Handle Screw Cap for my Shimano Spheros 8000FB is MIA. Any ideas on where to find this part? My two local (we don't promote or discuss them here) shops are a no-go and the service center listed on Shimano's website blew me off. Help!!

 

Also, suggestions if i can't find a replacement?

What he ^ said.......although you have to be patient, as many times you can be on hold for 15 minutes+.

 

If you called that number and they blew you off (hard to believe), did they say why? Usually they are very good, and for something like that, will send it out gratis.

I didn't call that number. I called a local service center listed on the Shimano website. They weren't overly helpful.

 

THX for the phone number. i don't know why i didn't see that number on the website.

 

Ok to just tape over the opening until i get the part? I don't plan on swimming with it, just some fishin off a jetty.
