    Will this be ok to fish? Headed on a LR trip next week..no time to get repaired. The other three screws are fine going to clamp it to an 8 ft GUSA hoping for 100 lb class YFT.

    Thanks

    Where do you head out for LR trip? I know Okuma has some departments right by most landings.

    You could go to a local shop I'm sure they could do it also. Look for a okuma authorised repair shop

    Okuma was pretty good they are getting a couple,of screws in the mail tomorrow. Wondering if i should attempt to replace myself or just fish it amd fix later in case it goes sideways.

    If you can get a good center punch in there it will be fairly easy to drill and easy out. Be careful though!

    I would not fish it on 100lb class fish... The failure point with that much stress on the reel seat is not worth it.... They have had the TLD series (graphite) reels crack and break.... Just in case you hook into a freight train you want to at it’s best!

    Should be easy to get out with a super small drill bit, low speed.... The drill bit might even grab the screw and spin it out for you.... the hole goes all the way through, so you could get it from either side of you opened it up and removed the spool.... local hardware store may even have that screw in stainless available....

    If you’re not handy, maybe one of the BD guys who is will chime in and help ya out...

    Thatis what okuma said it will probably fish but...... They have a great SD and screws are on the way. Wondering if i get 3 out if i can spin the reel seat on the broken one until its off then grab and remove. New reel to me just not sure how the reel seat butts up against the reel frame.

    If you’re going to drill it, I would drill it with a left-hand drill bit it may unscrew it.

    The hole and threads go all the way through.... either drill bit will likely do it...

    This and use an extractor. Pretty easy job. Use a small bit to start and increase to size of the extractor. If you can't do this, you need to turn in your man card.

    My opinion, you asked, so suggest getting a pro to do it.

    Maybe Anglers Choice has the part you need... and they can just bill Okuma as a warranty part.
