    I just bought an Abu Garcia 7000, and one of the things it came with is a wire rectangle about 2 inches long and 3/4 inch high that looks sort of like a bow tie. Does anyone know what this is for? Thanks, James

    Sounds like maybe a keeper that holds a bearing in place. May be a replacement, or maybe they forgot to put it in and just threw it in the box! Can you post a pic of it?

    after looking at some schematics, I found nothing that looks like what you have described. Its not a line threader is it!

    I did get a rod clamp with the reel but this is something different. It looks like this: >____< but with another line on top and both lines connected to the ends. It looks like it is made out of steel about the diameter of a large paper clip and has the wire cut where the bottom peice and one end come togeather.

    Sounds like the wire clip that is used to hold the reel in place in the box for display.

    Thanks, it does look like it probably is a clip to secure the reel foot to the packaging.
