i have an older diawa gs1655t. although this is not an exceptionally quality reel, it has quite a bit of personnal signifagance. first flounder, striper, drum, blue, 8 lb largemouth, 27 inch rainbow, native brookies, etc. this past fall season put quite a hurting on my baby, and i'd like to get her ready for the new season. this beauty is pushing 15 yrs old and since i got her when i was about ten, i no longer have the diagrams. also the diawa internet site does not list this model. stripped gears and a broken anti reverse are the main dilemmas. does anyone know of any local technicians who repair older reels? do you have experience with them? are they reliable? i could ship it to the shop i grew up supporting in pennsylvania, but would rather start a new relationship locally that i can utilize in the future. any and all help is greatly appreciated. please let some warmer weather arrive soon.
