Hi 

When it comes to repairs of reel and rods we need to remember that some parts of our tackle can be repaired and some parts can only be replaced for brand new parts -  the price for replaceable parts is always this same at for example at 1% and at 31 %. I will give you some figures here that will allow you to save some silver when it comes to repairs and replacing your tackle parts.

 

Reparable part - restoration

The golden rule of RF4 repairs -  better to go once and repair for example your mechanism at 30% and pay for example 800 silver than going twice at 15% and pay 500 silver each time. Repairing it once will save you silver. As with all RF4 repairs, you pay a base fee + second fee that depends on the damage to the part you want to repair. The more damage a part has, it means more to pay but your base fee stays the same when you got at 15% and 30%  - that's how you save silver with repairs.

 

2 x 15% - 1000

1 x 30% - 800

 

Replacing the parts - as mentioned above the price for replacements stays this same no matter what % damage is on the parts.

 

Please see an example of Rebellion Match rod - Line guides replacement cost - 

Cost of replacing it at 6.6%  is this same at 7.4%.

You might even consider getting the brand new or even better rod than replacing line guides.

 

Reels:

Mechanism - you can repair it - my advice is not to repair it below 30%

Ball bearings - replacement - my advice is not to replace them below 50%

Friction brake - replacement - my advice is not to replace it unless you can see yourself that fighting the fish is becoming more and more difficult for you - I would not replace it below 30% if you want to save silver.

Spool - replacement - my advice is not to replace it below 50%

Grease - replacement - I would not replace it below 15%. 

 

Rods:

Line guides - replacement - my advice is not to replace them below 50%

Blanks - these can NOT be repaired or replaced at the moment.

 

Lines:

Lines can't be repaired - you need to replace them with the new lines. It is up to the player to decide when to do this. With every 1% dmg on your line strength of this line is reduced by 1. So if your 30kg line got 10% dmg on it, the max weight on that line is reduced by 3kg. 

 

Obviously, the more damage on the reel or rods, the less strength your equipment will have. If your reel can handle up to 10kg drag at when in pristine condition, it will be able to only handle up to 5kg when at 50% wear. This too goes for rods and lines. Some players might decide to replace their brakes earlier, so the reel will still be able to handle the big fish better. It is your decision. 

 

- Check all the tackle shops before repairing for prices - prices when paying with silver can be different from shop to shop.

- The cheaper cost means more waiting time - you need to be online when waiting. 

- Repairs and replacements paid with silver might not be always successful - the unsuccessful rate is low but it might happen.  

- Repairs and replacements paid with gold are always successful and are instant (no waiting time).

Hello, 
Guide lines will make difference on how quickly your line will be damaged, more wear on guides, more it damages the line.
Rod blank/body wear will change its load capacity, so 10% wear of 30kg rod, you will be losing 3kg of load capacity of your rod, reducing its breaking point.

What are the effects of damage on the reel parts?
We all know why the friction brake is so important but what about the other components?

Hello,
Damage on your mechanism lowers the load capacity of your reel, it will break easier while under stress.

Hello Levo, I hope this is the right place to ask some clarification.

I bought a Beluga Narga 8000 for silver, and from the tackle shop info  the limit  is "i cannot send to other players".

Checking in the workshop I discover that some replacement part like ball bearings and friction brakes can be repaired only with gold meanwhile mechanism can be repair by silver.

I think is unfair, should be indicated once you buy a reel if some replacement can be done only by gold.

Otherwise my choice was on another reel.

 

Thanks

Poldo

 

PS by your indication I know i can carry this reel  a little bit before repair it, thanks.

Not all shops can carry out every repair or replacement, try another shop. Beluga shop in Ladoga can repair all parts of all Beluga reels.
