how much are they?? a twister is about $3500 now.

how about a chain and sprocket, or belts, they work great, for a fraction of the cost.

Thanks Pugsley, the price didn't come thru on the kolstrand, they want 5900.00!

Are ya looking for AK or NJ fishing ?? Have you looked on the Copper River Boats site, Margaret has a lot of used gear listed there and you can post a wanted ad for free, i'd bet there are a few of those boxes laying around. The twisters need to be lined up correctly to the reels shaft or they eat the seals and the gear box fill up with water, the kem drives are bombproof. I had one on my bowpicker that i dug out of the dirt at a guys house, it had laid there for 15 years i got the kem a fiberglass reel and petrazellica level line for 200 bucks, i cleaned up the kem & level wind junked the reel and installed it on a reel i got out of the junk pile behind a cannery in cordova and it worked great for at least 10 years till i sold the boat and its still on there with a inbred russian kid beating the shit out of it and my boat :p. I've got a level wind here, a reel stand and a couple of fiberglass reels if you need them.
Call this guy Luck Hall 907 349-0048 or 949-525-7883, he's selling all the gear his dad (Larry) had, he fished CI & PWS in fact we've talked about him he had the Nights Edge & Summer Spirit that your buddies had. He had a lot of used gear laying in his yard in anchorage, i'd bet there might be a gearbox in the pile somewhere.

Steve,
I'm looking for a level wind and power roller. Got anything in the bone yard? A project unit is ok by me.

I've got a kinematics level wind out in the yard, i think its aprox 48" wide, i'll try to get a ruler on it tomorrow & pictures. I think a guy had a power roller on the copper river site.

Thanks Steve, I'm Looking for AK fishing, have to get up there this year, I want to try to get the boat set up over the winter so it's ready to fish when I get it up there, thanks for the help I'm sure I will have a lot of questions.

When i was in cordova every spring i would always be looking around the junk piles for goodies like a jew in a junkyard !! Those guys would throw away whole corklines &leadlines because they had a couple of knots in them:confused: I had the guy in Redden marine tell me he didn't have any weedline in stock for a net i was hanging, i say to him whats that there on the shelf, he says oh thats to short only 600' and you need a 1000' reel, i say to him just give me 2 spools and thats why God invented knots !! He just looked at me and says "will that work"!!

Lots of good reels laying in those junk piles just have to look around and be willing to do a little patch work on them. I guess a new reel w/level wind goes for close to 6-8 grand these days. There must be some reels down in Homer around those boat yards i'd bet.
