    I have been looking into adding Drag replacements for all major Manufactures reels. And lots of Spool Bearings to our website.
    Just wondering if this is something that would sell enough to even handle them?
    Would ever handle Carbon fiber drags for lots of the Abu's. And the metal washer sets also.

    Pete,
    Had to go with
    "Not sure I would ever upgrade the drags or bearings "
    But if I did need either of those parts and you had them I would be happy to get them from you...W

    Thanks Winston. I'm like you most of mine will never need to be upgraded. But I have one Abu 7000 that I will update Its one of the red ones .
    Also I need to get a package out to you. I have you some hooks to test out been meaning to get them in the mail.

    As for me if i ever need such i had rather buy from you than order from some company that could care less. I appreciate what you do for this site, the same as our other sponsors.

    Pete I put that I would buy them, I have 2 Abu 6500 that have the original drags and I bet that replacing them would make them that much better to catch those 2lbrs that I always get LOL. Really tho I would probably buy them, I like Shelby's idea of the power handle also, a one stop shop to get them and support a supporter would be nice.

    I will be upgrading some things on my Abu's also. I will be glad to give you my business since I have to mail order the parts no matter what. If it wasn't for mailing costs I would gladly buy everything from you, you being a sponsor is appreciated. I agree, the selling of power handles will get you a lot of business ; )
