I've got a Daiwa Emcast Plus 5000 reel and I think one of my boys wound it up and a bunch of line got wound underneath the spool and damaged that little piece of metal and spring that's part of the spool. Do they sell those two parts separately or do I really have to buy an entire new spool? :crazy: They don't appear to be on the schematic unless I'm just not seeing them. BTW, anyone know what they're for? If broken would they cause the spool to spin while winding, thus not allowing you to actually wind any line onto the spool? That's what I discovered my reel was doing AFTER we drove over an hour to get to the beach. Lesson learnt. :tounge_out: Luckily I had my bass outfit, with which I ended up foul hooking a loggerhead, which I eventually landed and safely removed the hook from and let go after letting the kids enjoy her for a minute or two while she rested for a bit. Really beautiful and gentle creatures.
