Hey guys,
Just looking for some advice, I have broken the tip ring on my abu spinning rod (and lost a rig in the process of breaking it:oops:).
Could anyone advise any shops around Llantrisant/Bridgend that would be able to fix this for me?
Also I am looking for a new reel, any opinions on the following reel?
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/MITCHELL-701-...12|39:1|66:2|65:12&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14.l1318

Only getting back into fishing after a 15 year break.

Cheers

Hi Mate I don't know to much about that Mitchell reel, one bearing is the minimum you can have so you would have to question the life expectancy and performance under pressure

My preferred choice on fixed spool reels are diawa's and shimano's they do cost more but they last (well the one's I have used do)

sorry if this adds to the confusion, is the reel for spinning only

I always use Cliff Harvey Angling Supplies for rod repairs/re-ringing. Costs next to nothing and always a top job.
The shop is on Albion Industrial Estate Cilfynydd, Pontypridd

cant help to much on the rod mate! around that area, in barry tho barry angling centre would fix it up easily for you! but bound to be more local shops to you which can do it! :D:clap2::clap2:,
for a nice spinning reel i would have a look in argos mate, nice shimano one in there for 24.99 , i have the reel and its a great reel for spinning float fishing , etc , :D and really good quality with a metal spool , and great drag system on it , page 938 if u have the magizine lol , !
.... the reel on ebay might not last long its a bit plasicey , best to buy something which will last :D
