I have a couple of H2O mettles that needs parts. One of them is missing the side plate. I was hoping that someone else might have a couple of mettles laying around that are broken or unused that I can tear apart for parts.

I have one with a missing sideplate as well. That is a HUGE design flaw. I was fishing Tawakoni this past weekend and off comes the side, falls overboard, and I watch it sink before I could reach down and grab it. That button on the side is a bad thing to release it.

There's a guy in Euless that is selling 4 of them for $20 a piece. He doesn't want to ship otherwise I would have bought them all. His ad should be on the first couple if pages.


I love these reels but I agree. The side plate shouldn't be so easy to take off. This is the second one that it's happened.

I am just going to keep that other one for parts and tape the other 3 or 4 that I have to ensure it doesn't happen again. I wish H2) would recall and replace those reels for that reason, but the more they fall apart, the more they can sell. I wont buy any more with that button I assure you.

Will Academy exchange them with parts missing? If so, I would take all 4 that I have back and swap them for reels that don't have the buttons.

The manager at my local academy is a scrooge. He hardly lets you return anything.
