Hi guy's
I bought the above reel new from ebay a few weeks ago after a few beers, on using the reel i find the bale arm is coming over and locking the line.
Mike Sullavan had a look at the reel and suggested tightening up the arm.
While looking at the reel he suggested the bearings have issues.
Not sure if Shamanio will look at the reel under any warranty so would any body recommend an outlet to have it looked at.
I paid £50 which i know is no the end of the world compared to some reels but i really like the feel of the reel but don't want to pay a fortune on repairs.
Lesson to learn always buy from a shop with a good reputation.
Cheers in advance for any suggestions.

Hi mate,

there is a real good reel repair guy in Plymouth, I think his name is Quentin. He has a small industrial unit near the ski slope.

PM Toby Harnet. He has his details.

hope this helps

I don't really understand what is wrong with the reel Andrew. Have you taken it out and used it, and found the bail arm closes to easily? A new reel shouldn't do that...
