Reel Repair Parts, Where?

I want to fix my friends Penn Battle 3000. It'd needs the bail spring mechanism fixed. Anyone know a shop near Sarasota to buy parts? If not, I can order online.

Thanks,
John

    There's a guy named Tim that everyone says is the best. He was about a 15 minute drive south of Siesta Key when I dropped of my reel last month. I don't know his last name, but his cell is listed below. He works out of his home and has limited hours. Call ahead before just stopping over. I'm not sure if you can order parts without him repairing it personally. He is reasonably priced. If you want to do the repairs yourself I would just call Penn

    Thanks, I'm good now. Ordered parts online. $7.25 with shipping.

    I'm originally from PA where real Penn's use to be made. We would drop them off at the counter and pick them up a week later cleaned, rebuilt for next to nothing. They were the days!

    Scott's is a great place to order Penn parts for reels still relatively new or common.
