    Wondering if anyone has ever rebuilt one of these reels? I have several and a few are needing bearings and the level wind is starting to hang up when it gets to the end of the reel. A friend said its not that big of a deal to fix them, anyone tried it? Chris

    ive had my 300l apart to clean and lube, havent need to replace any parts yet. they are about the same as any other reel except the cover screws if i remember are different but close enough that if you dont get them back in the right spot you might strip out a hole.
