Rocket launcher

Many moons ago when I lived in Victoria, we built a mortar out of 1m length of 70mm PVC pipe. Glue a butt cap on one end, install a flap valve half way up the tube, and install a bike valve. From memory I think we put in some wire mesh just above the flap valve so that the bait and wouldn't interfer...

Grinding 2500C

kris I have exactly the same problem. I bought an old 2500C, stripped it completely, regreased and oiled and now have that funny grinding going on.

Thanks John The main reason for wanting a high speed overhead vs. a threadline is casting distance for a start, and as you say strength. Abu do a Big Game 7000 HS with 5.3:1 gears and was hoping to find them somewhere in oz. I only need a little more speed out of my reel, I don't need to match a TSS...

Converting a Abu 7000 into a high speed suicide machine

I love my 7000 but high speed spinning off the rocks wears me out and I can't get the retrieve of my mates TSS4. Is there a gear I can put in to increase the retrive rate (and where do you buy them)

Cheers

Level wind problems on amBASSadeur Lite Plus 35th annive

Hi, I won this reel many moons ago at the Oakdale Fishing Carnival in Victoria, which is why it is not in the bin. The level-wind mechanism does not re-engage. Part number 19506 should swing up on engagement.

Can anybody help or direct me to someone who can???

Cheers
