    I know these reels are pretty much old , outdated and shimano doesn't back them for parts anymore but is there anyone out there who does work on them? I need to have one maintenanced and have a few drag washers replaced and was wondering if it's still possible... I happen to like these reels and wanna keep using them ... If anyone knows of a shop it would greatly be appreciated
