Received the parts shortly after speaking on the phone. Great that you take the time to source parts for what i consider the best fixed spool reel made, Abu Suveran, and because off that my reels will probably outlast me!!!! Hope to see you at the Redditch show later this year.

Reel received today and I'm very impressed. Condition was never a big issue for me as I wanted a reel to fish with but it has far exceeded my expectations.
I'd recommend your site to anyone & will be watching for other items.

Hello, from York Pennsylvania, USA... Found your excellent collections while searching for Foster Bros Ashbourne as having recently acquired an Airsprite 7ft. fly rod. Also have several other "Made In England" fly rods & reels and have sometimes need of repair & replacement component parts. Presently hunting the round black threaded Butt plugs or bumpers used on Foster Bros., Herter's UK-made St. Alban Grand Deluxe & Hardy fly rods - did not see them on your site but hopefully you may be able to direct me to a source to purchase in small lot or bulk order.
Thoroughly enjoyed looking through your posted collection items and reading your excellent comments.
Best regards, Mike Cavanaugh, York Pennsylvania, USA

I have been looking for an Abu Cardinal 66 for very many years. Thanks to you my unused, new reel arrived this morning. Incredibly, I was also able to access genuine spare parts that you had in stock. The quality of the reel was exactly as described...superb; and the service you provided was excellent in every way.
I cannot commend your company highly enough and look forward to the pleasure of shopping with you again.

I must say you have a wonderful website. I am an older fisherman, and to see some of these wonderful old reels brings back memories of past fishing trips and past friends. Thank you for a much needed trip down memory lane.

hi....i'm looking for info on my cardinal 44x,serial number 741000...i've looked at the images on your site and found that the badge is different to the ones you have pictured,mine has a square badge with abu cardinal 44x in it only,the body is green with a cream head and the spool has what looks like a cork liner....any help with this would be fantastic as i was taught to fish by my father with this reel many many years ago
