Text or call me for quick response
Thanks Doodle I'm looking for a trolling or jigging level wind combo, I should have been more specific. I want a heavy set up for offshore, I already have a Shimano Surge (Spinning) set up. Thanks anyways! Still looking!
Don't know if it's too late for you, but I order from Cabelas and have whatever, (usually offshore fishing gear) and have them ship it to my destination. It has always been there waiting for me when I get there. It has always worked for me without fail,(knock on wood) plus their gear is top notch. Their express shipping works for those pressed for time too, just a little more money over regular shipping costs. If you do go this route, ALWAYS talk to someone LIVE when ordering to help with the process. They are very helpful and insightful. Good luck and good fishing.8D
Hi Paul (Doodle)
Last month I was in the Bahamas and I broke the handle of my old Shimano AX 500S, tripping in the rocks while fighting a nice jack. I just learned that the replacement handle (Shimano part # RD 1724) is discontinued and I can't find it anywhere. So the only way to save my old reel is to buy another old one to get replacement parts including the handle. So my question is: Is your old Shimano AX 500S still for sale and would you be willing to sell the reel only? If yes I will call you.
Thanks and have a good day
