Abu garcia seven (made in Sweden) ..short overview and pics

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

I swooped up some abu garcia seven side plates thinking they'd fit a older 7000 . Turns out they fit but are slightly different. The hole for the button to disengage the spool was a little larger.  So i googled and found out the abu seven is a different reel ,it's alot like the 7000i under the side plates. Read it was marketed to new Zealand.  Anyways ,I happened to get one in a trade locally and thought I'd share some pics since there doesn't seem to be any on google... excuse the gross grease and dirt ,I'm working on that.

 

Things I've noticed so far in taking it apart.

 

It uses a old 7000 main gear and dog paw. 

 

No bearings ,it uses bushing behind the end caps,and a black nylon bushing on the drive shaft like the old 7000.

 

It uses the old 7000 drive shaft and drag washers 

 

Instead of a button it has a switch to engage/disengage free spool . It's very 7000ish and old 7700 

 

Cog gear is metal ,and has a Swedish clicker setup ,and old star drag

 

It has the standard old screws ,no phillips 

 

I'll post more later as I finish swapping plates and cleaning

Finished cleaning and putting back together. It feels like the kind of reel you leave in the car . It feels meh,but works. Cool concept ,it probably wouldn't be too bad with bearings on the driveshaft and spool.
