    Does anyone service Favero reels. I don't have the time to mess with mine but would like to get it fixed ASAP.

    Don't know about 'servicing' them, but can work on them. What seems to be the issue?

    You might try asking YeOldeArmorer. I don't know if Tim is taking on any new work these days but if he is and if you're in a hurry then he may be closest.

    I'm fairly certain there's a break in the cable, since resistance varies from under 8 ohms to infinite when I spool the cable in and out. Right now my shop is stuffed with tools and hovering around freezing so i'm not inclined to take one apart for the first time and have various parts go sailing away into dark crevices while freezing my butt off. plus I am virtually blind after having PRK surgery. I am in Montana, but will ship anywhere and pay a reasonable shop rate to get this reel working again. It's 2-3 years old so it's probably do for PMC anyway.
