There's enough information there to tell me not to attempt any tinkering.

Funnily enough, having found that an interesting read, as someone who likes to fettle with reels it may just have persuaded me not to invest in a reel I don't have!!

Reading about it makes it sound more complicated than it really is so dont let it stop you buying one.
A couple of simple tools can be made which will help if you are going to do Altex repairs on a regular basis but once you have done a few of them, they are really nice to work on. Spares are the main concern but some worn parts can be given new life with a bit of work.

Cheers Wal. If I'm honest, I've always preferred the looks of the Exalta. Having dipped my toe in Hardy reels for the first time in the last year with a Hardex (I love the feel and simplicity of them) and a Conquest, I suspect my wading up to my knees Hardy will be an Exalta!

I'm not suggesting for a moment that an Altex would be stepping in over my head. That was the ABU7000 I stripped down as a teenager when I was trying to improve my casting distance!
