    Greg do you have a local reel repair shop in your area? It would only take a second and probably would not cost anything. Especially if you took the boy with you.

    Buy another one and take it apart! Then you will have two to send in to ZEBCO lol No,you will have a back up reel for when the big one steals your son's unit because he wasn't watching after you told him a hundred times...:wink:

    I have an 808 magnum, is there something I can look at or take a picture of for you that might help?

    But Zebcos are not made to be repaired. I've got a Daiwa Silvercast 120A that I just love. And I can get it repaired or fix it myself if need be.

    Dont listen to that rubish . A zebco can be repaired . I do not use them myself anymore but have used them in the past . I have an 808 out in the garage that has been in there awhile . I can take a few pictures if needed to try helping you out .
