    Default Its a want .. for an old guy in club. Shimano 3000 gtm Super Aero Bail arm

    Hiya All.

    Its a want request, just a chance someone might help.

    An old guy in my club needs a bail arm (broken bail wire) for a Shimano 3000 gtm Super Aero.

    Either provide the bail arm.. or a contact where I can get one.

    Many thanks in advance

    Rich

    If half or more of the broken bail wire is still attached at the operating side, then the other side can be cut off & used as a "Half Bail".

    I had a Mitchell Half bail sea reel (the idea being that should the bail accidentally close during the cast - a crack off is far less likely)

    It worked & fished perfectly fine during use - It was made/modified that way when I bought it 2nd hand.

    Just like these for example.

    There’s a guy on eBay who seems only to sell Shimano bits! His Ebay name is Felindreinnovations.
    Try him , you never know, good luck!

    Here's the Shimano UK Contact phone number, give them a bell - might get one for FREE??

    Guess you're now looking at a full Bail Unit now as reckon the wire stub is broken off level??
