 While out fishing a few days ago I found a Shimano CU200 reel in the lake. After taking it apart to clean,I found a bad pinion gear.My question is,is the reel worth fixing if I can find a gear for it? The reel cleaned up real nice and I would hate to just throw it in the cabinet and not use it.

   If that's the only thing wrong, it's... from Funky  6/12/2012 6:14:57 PM
 certainly worth fixing. You didn't say which model, but if it's a B, some of the pinions are getting scarce. What is wrong with the pinion gear? Kinda hard to damage one without damaging the drive gear also! Any idea how long it was in the water? Make sure you flush all the bearings, including the anti-reverse roller clutch a couple times to get any sediment out.

  Do you know the pinion is bad???? Do you have a grind. I could see the spool bearings the AR Bearings and such but the gears are brass and I cannot image those gears getting bad in fresh water unless a lot of lime in the water. It is worth fixing and if you cannot find the gears locally I do have some.(200B that is)

  It's the Curado CU200. It couldn't have been in the water for no more than a week,as I was fishing the spot last week.It was on a Allstar rod with the crankbait still attached. The hooks still looked new.

Stamp on the reel seat shows BD-S

   The right thing to do.... from Alex from GA #10518 #10518  6/13/2012 10:47:22 PM look for the owner first.

   Alex, That would be ME! from Bender, MS Gulf Coast  6/13/2012 11:39:46 PM
 I made a long cast and it slipped out of my hand (I have arthritis you know) and it went flying out of site. I did not see where it landed.

 Found a local reel repair shop that had the part I needed so it goes in the shop tomorrow.If I could give the reel back to the owner,I would be more than happy to provided he reimburse me for the money I sink into having it fixed.The lake I fish is like 185 acres so finding the owner would be impossible.I have found a couple of canoes over the years and towed them around all day checking with landowners to return them.
