Ambidex Mark 6 Bale arm

Post by FreshwaterPhil » Sat May 12, 2018 10:27 pm

Hello all,
When starting to set up for an evenings fishing last night l clumsily dropped my reel and bent the bale arm badly - tried to bend it back but instead snapped it in two on the threaded side of the arm. Does anyone have any ideas or leads as to where l might possibly get my hands on a replacement one please? The arm is not the ‘roller’ type but the solid wire type - l shall go and have another cry now as its my favourite reel! Cheers.

Dear FreshwaterPhil
I had also a problem with my Ambidex deluxe bailarm and Garry Mills from Mill Tackle was able to help. He is recommeded also from YW Young for the early reels.
Kind Regards
Mötti
