    THOUGHTS ON THE DAIWA SOL 3

    I don't know this model you refer to, as I don't think its yet available in South Africa. I would however recommend the BG series of Daiwa. Its not only a very good strong model, but it made a huge name in my country. It may also be cheaper than the model you currently consider.

    Pure Fishing - Abu Garcia Reels

    I can support this post. I am repairing reels, for over 20 years in South Africa and always received a very good backup service, from Pure Fishing, South Africa. Not only on the ABU parts, but also the Penn parts.

    abu 7000 reel problem

    Hi I am a bid late on this post ,but was wondering if your reel problem have been solved ? You should also look at the sharp points of the worm .They tend to get damaged and then the pawl will stay stuck in one place .
  6. Bream111 well done mate . I like the part of buying another reel to fix the original reel !!! I service and repair reels/rods for a living in South Africa . I receive many reels in plastic containers , after owners wanted to service their own reel and just could not get it back together . I wish I could charge $100 for a service/repair of a reel . I only get less than $15.00 and then the owners still complain I am to expensive.

    boat stolen

    Here by us they even steal your stuff behind lock doors and gates . They just brake it open in full day light and no one will lift a finger to stop them.

    Stolen 3.9 Sea-jay Tinny with Honda Outboard

    Sorry to hear about your loss . I understand what you mean by using the boat as a bonding with your son after a divorce . I also used my boat to take my son fishing after me divorce and we could enjoy quality time with each other . Hope you find your boat soon !!!

    A word of warning

    Interesting point there . At our cost the officers also only check certain people !!! Then we must have fishing permit with us or else a stiff fine . No excuses accepted here !

    Alvey Questions

    Very true words !!! Used my fist Alvey in 1980 very low maintenance reels. Not to fond of the new models with graphite frame as the old stainless model lock was working for me better . Enjoy your new reel
