Well the time has come to scratch this off the list of serviceable reels. Cabela’s will not sell parts for their reels, instead they just want you to buy another reel. One and done. Seems short sighted to me and many others but hey they are in the business to sell new reels. If your like me and invest in quality equipment to be used over many years I would avoid this brand.
All these manufactures are still producing parts. Many have had supply constraints due to the Virus disruption to global supply chains.
