  2. Reel Repair and Maintenance
    OK so come to use my Abu for the first time. When casting I press the thumb bar and release the spool. Occasionally when casting mid cast it will reset locking the spool and causing a crack off. Any ideas what this could be? It's useable but difficult, I'm having to keep pressing the thumb bar...
  3. Casting
    Hi folks just recently shifted over my 6500s to braid and today I had nothing but bother, with mono it cast like a dream but with braid its being a bit of a nightmare overrunning nonstop, I'm fishing the braid straight through with a full set of magnets on maximum and the reel braked up to the...
  4. Reel Repair and Maintenance
    Hi folks, Been speaking to @blakdog about a Abu 7500C3 CT schematic. I'm wondering if anyone out there happens to have one as the only schematic I can find is here and it doesn't say its for the C3 CT version. Can someone clarify for me, please?

    After treating myself to another new rod, this one is now surplus to requirements. In pristine, as new condition including the spigot and tip ring, not a mark on it. Would make a great second rod (what I originally bought it for) or one for somebody finding their feet, but casts very well and...
  6. Reel Repair and Maintenance
    Will the TSR take any other spool/spindle from other 6500's, or is it the case that it will only take the one it came with, also, i am led to believe that the bearings are glued into the spool (ceramics ?) which means to change bearings I would have to buy the entire spool.

  9. Angling Clubs
    My CT-converted 6500GR came back from Pete Coogan a couple weeks ago. Pete replaced one of the parts in the anti-reverse and installed carbon-fibre drag washers. I don't know what I'll use it for now; I used to use these to catch skipjack and small yellowfin tuna on light tackle, but no longer...
  10. Angling Item SALE or SWAP.
    I am still looking for an ABU suveran sx. I know there is one on ebay but that guy wants to much even though it is new. I was looking for 2 but now have 1 so need another. If you are out side of Tayside, Angus, Fife would require posting. Even if you have a pair at a decent price would...
