    i don't know about abu, but penns are easy enough you should be able to do it yourself. alan tani has a step by step tutorial on the 209 at his website. schematics and parts available at pennparts aka scotts bait & tackle. i've overhauled 3 so far this winter, my 9, 85, and surfmaster 200, still have the 209 to do. if a clown like me can do it, its likely you can too. have fun and save money!

    Don't know where in Ohio you live, but there a guy in Newark, Ohio that people bring their reels to from all over the state and further. The business in Farquhar & Steinbaugh, 116 Union Street, Newark, Ohio 43055, phone: (740) 344-6200. I know there are people on here that use his services. Rollo does I know.
