    Re: Repair Abu Garcia Ambassadeur C3-5501 tension knob

    Nice! I do make my way to Sacramento every once in a while and can bring the reel next time. I'm closer to the SJ location so I can try bringing the reel in there too.

    Don't know if these are near your location or not?

    Repair Abu Garcia Ambassadeur C3-5501 tension knob

    Hello - I have a C3-5501 reel that is a few years old that appears to work fine, but has a broken plastic piece inside the tension knob. When I loosen the tension knob all the way and remove the cap, I see a round black plastic piece that is broken into three pieces.

    Is there a place I can go to easily get this repaired? Hopefully one of the tackle shops around can do it, as it seems to be a pretty trivial piece of the reel.
