    You folks may wish to see if PF still offers a price break after a 50.00 order. They used to offer (if memory serves) 20% after 50.00.

    If I order from PF, it's 4-6 weeks before I get the parts. So:

    I prefer to shop local if I can. Local to mean the shop downtown, or the warranty center for Abu in Abbotsford BC. (Mike's Reel)

    If I want to spend an additional 50.00 in brokerage and freight, I can have the PF parts in 4 days.

    The problem with ordering directly from the company is the shipping. I needed 2 fly weights (.89 each) and my bill was going to be 11.00 and change... I asked the lady to put it in an envelope and put a stamp on it, they didn't weigh anything...

    GOOD LORD!!! I know the postal service is hurting, but give me a break...

    Hit the local reel shops, they got that stuff and usually on hand without the arm and leg shipping

    Cast Away Lakes is a good source for parts and they have the ceramic bearings too. Ship fast. Usually have parts in a few days. Shipping ain't too bad either.

    I ordered a couple of small parts from Abu Garcia directly, from the link I provided. Total cost for parts + shipping was LESS than $5.

    After re reading this I noticed your link was to a different place then I tried.

    I tried to call the # from abugarcia.com!!!

    I didn't even think of calling the factory outlet here in Iowa... :embarassed:
