WANTED - Kilwell Genesis 567 Spool

Post by Whio » Sat Sep 29, 2018 3:20 pm

A long cast I know but wondered if anyone out there might have a spare spool for my Genesis 567 reel that you'd be willing to part with for a few $$

Would be happy with a dead reel if the spool is still good ;)
Cheers

I have a Kilwell Genesis II 6/7 if that's what you're after?

Thanks for your offer Jim. Sadly the Genesis II model is different to the original model that I have.
Cheers Dave

It's been a while since I owned a Genesis 2, but I remember the drag as being very simple - although it's a long time since I sold my one to a guy in Hawkes Bay. Any chance you can put up some pictures, or send them to me and I will try to help you (PM for email address)?

I may still have an exploded diagram for how they are put together, as I tend to hang onto them.

Hi Jim
I don't know too much. As Andy says, they're quite simple. I've pulled a few apart and given them a service. My Shimano had a major drag problem. All it needed was a clean and lube and it was back to new again.
