    Anybody know who can service an Omoto Ulises 100Z II -2 speed reel? My reel seems to have lost its free-spool.

    Their website lists a Philippines address for warranty service (One of the many reasons I wouldn't consider buying one).

    You could try cracking it open yourself, or if you're really lucky, take it back to the dealer you bought it from...

    That usually means saltwater got into the bearings, any good reel guy should be able to replace them...

    Thanks guys, I frequent Oceanside quite a bit. I thought about Ken's so I'll see what they can do.

    Just remember to take in the schematic with you, especially if it is the same model (or came with the reel, DUH!). It will help them a lot and save them time.

    Since you are by there often enough, Ken's would be an easy choice.

    You're right, but no Schematics came with the reel, bummer
    I'm told the Omoto insides are very similar to Okuma 's

    Omoto reels are similar to the old Okumas, not the current ones. And the few I've had in the shop have had some odd sized bearings. I hope those aren't the ones you need...
