Question,   I used some Ambassadors and the worm gear on every single one would stop on the right side of the reel after 4 or 5 months. I would remove the worm gear and turn it around and it would work again for about 4 months......then the same thing. I tried them in the early 80s  then again in the early 90s with the same results. I fish several days a week. The shimanos(bantams,corsairs,citacas and curados) and  have always fished flawlessly for me. But I was trying a new brand that was just a small bit less expensive.
  I guess that my question is have others had this problem and why has ABU not corrected this?

Every ABU I owned had the same problem. Most people think the worm gear is bad but most of the time it is just the pawl. If you change the pawl out and get the same results then it's time for a worm gear. When I fished with ABU i always kept extra pawls in the boat.

With any baitcaster you have to keep the worm gear clean.I check the worm gears often and carry Q-tips and real butter oil in the boat.Debree can clog up a worm gear fast and if not cleaned can cause worm gear failure.I have never had a worm gear go bad on my Revos yet.I did have worm gear problems in the old days with the round reels.

Been an Abu Garcia fan for over 40 years, used the round reels, XLT's, Revos and many others.  As long as you keep the reels clean and oiled they continue to work forever.  I have an old black 6000C that is at least 30 years old and have done nothing but clean it.  Have never needed to replace a single part in this reel and use it for Striper and Musky fishing to this day.  My wife is still using my 1980 XLT plus' that I use heavily while fishing the tournament circut.  The C3 and C4 series were not built as well as the newer Revos, but these reels kick butt and with reasonable care will last for years.  As far as your problem with the worm gear.  With the dozens of Abu Garcia reels I have owned have never had a worm gear go bad and only have had one pawl that needed replacing.  The only thing I have seen that has needed replacing is the drag washers in the C3 and C4 series reels and even that was rare if I took good care of the reel.

WHY WOULD YOU COMPARE ME TO A RABID TERRORIST?
Thats much funnier than any ball breaking I have done on the net in years ~roflmao
If someone takes time to prove a point you do not agree with , then you compare them to a person who planted bombs and killed and maimed folks? I am glad I never had to turn down a loan for you, you might link my name with Mike Vick or even worse Richard Nixon, now that would be worth fighting over :o
 

BK, is it really fair to label Ted as a RABID terrorist?  Terrorist I can go along with...but RABID? 

As to the sophisticated HUSTLE?  Ever watch all those ads on TV for various drugs?  How about the old Wonder bread:  '...builds strong bodies 9 different ways...'

I always keep my reels in the best shape possible. I clean them about once every two months. I was just wondering because of my experiences and another friend has the same thing happen. Thanks for the imput.
