Looks like a quality reel... As soon as I see an AR that works off a rachet near the pinion I start to think that...
Quote from: foakes on January 14, 2020, 09:43:50 PMIs it a coincidence that 9 times out of 10 -- it is a plastic or pot metal part that fails?Shortcuts in materials & quality parts -- always lead to an early demise of a decent fishing reel. Even when the reel has not been used much, if at all.Plastic's nature is to break -- pot metal blocks are lubed with grease that turns to hard beeswax over time -- then an unknowing angler tries to "crank it back to health" -- and the block busts into pieces.You should have let me know you needed a block, Tom.EBay seller likely figured it went too cheap -- but was locked into selling it to you. When an $$$ adjustment was on the table -- he was just happy to get the reel back, install a new block, and sell it for twice as much later.Best, Fred
