Hi Folks

I have been a Abu fanatic for about 10 years 6500-7000 mainly, just recently I acquired a 7HT none mag version.

Any hints or tips or idiosyncrasies to pass on would much appreciated

Very funny, take a knife, nice,

I notice from your fav reels you are an Abu acolyte, been there, trying a different flavour, I have nothing against Abu 6500, in fact my Chrome rocket is still going strong, albeit much noiser than it ever used to be, in need of a decent service.

I picked up this 7HT for 43 squid so its not a mahoosive blunder if it all goes belly up

Make sure there's some brake blocks in (you'll find them under the left hand end plate). Under fill the reel by about 3mm, once the spool is centred, give yourself about a 1mm of lateral play on the spool and listen to it purr when cast :thumbs:

Thanks for the tips Wooky, I have seen some posts stating something about the sleeve replacement ?
I also sent an email to John Holden the guy in the video, he makes a whole bunch of ebooks and training material relating to casting, I didn't expect a reply, but he got back in touch almost straight away, really nice guy, very helpful
