Fishing Tackle Avet Reels - Local Service Please ??

    Is there anybody local that can service/repair Avet reels? I've had an SXJ single speed for a while and it is super easy to strip and service but I've just bought a second hand SX Raptor (cheap thankfully) and there is quite a bit of play in the handle.

    It also feels like a bag of spanners if I tighten up the drag. I could be wrong but I think a new pinion bearing will sort the latter? The play in the handle is a mystery.

    It's nothing to do with the anti reverse mechanism. It seems to be coming from the drive shaft/high and low gear assembly but that is the one part of the reel I'm struggling to get apart. Any help or recommendations of a person that could fix the reel would be greatly appreciated.

    Question From Facebook Here.

    Hi Glen.

    I post my Avet raptors & 2 speed accurates for an annual service to Ron at info@unit5reelservice.co.uk. He is down on the south coast.
    I was put onto him by lads on the World sea fishing forum.
