    If it's cheap, buy it. Most everything can be fixed as good as or sometimes better than new...W

    Hi Brandon,,
    223 Reload pointed me at your "Want to Trade" post.. I can see from the picture, looks like you need a new frame.
    That would probably be the cheapest and most effective fix..
    or sell or trade the rest of the reel as a "parts" reel.
    Good Luck
