    Posted: 26 February 2015 at 5:26pm
Hey, I have broken down and am rebuilding some old Penn 25 GLS reels (these are the lever drag reels).  One of the parts I need to replace is the drag disc.  It appears that the old one is glued onto the spool.  Have any of you made this switch and is there any advice for removing the old drag disc?  Appreciate any insight!!!

Call Cindy at A REEL FIX. She has over 20 years experience on reel repair and probably has your parts in stock. She is at 843 756 7335.
She will walk you through any tough areas too.

Send it back to Penn.

I sent them a 209, and they went through it completely. Replaced drag washers, a gear, and even put a new handle on it.
They did not charge me for parts - only a $25 service fee (and shipping both ways).
Penn has great customer service.

Scott's bait & tackle is a great source for NOS parts.

If it smells like feesh - eat it.
