Hi

just wondering if it is always wise to order original parts for reels or whether there are generic parts that can be used.  I know a number of parts seem very specific.. but i am really meaning in relation to common parts like e clips, washers, bearings, springs etc.

Would also be interested in some good sites to source parts from. I live in New Zealand so cost of postage also needs to be taken into account.

Thanks for your help.

like so many thing, it sorta depends.....   Undecided

we've all taken shortcuts or have had to improvise, and i know what you mean by postage costs.  they're crazy!  you can ship first class with no tracking, or get tracking at double the price.

as far as shipping goes, if you have several guys here that you are purchasing from, probably any one of us can take all the orders and then ship at once.  i've done that several times.
