Quick Abu Zenon question

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Quick Abu Zenon question

Post by Big-Donkey » Tue Sep 20, 2022 8:18 am

I talked with a gentleman at abu and asked if the reel only comes with one spool. He said he wasnt sure so he checked on it. He talked with someone briefly and came back to the phone and said the reel only comes with one spool. I know the TT review mentioned something about it coming with two. Could anyone comfirm that its supposed to come with one or two? Thanks for the help.

Ok, I called Abu again today. Talked with the same gentleman. He talked with his manager and again stated, the Zenon comes with one spool.

karirick, Do you own one or is this something you heard? I dont know anyone else to ask. Does anyone know someone at Abu-Garcia thats a bit higher up?

Had one and it came with a shallow and stock. Mentioned on gere in another thread as well; but won't shock me if this is a cost cutting measure and they did away with it in this crazy world we are living in.

Spinning reel right? Casting won't come with 2?

Good luck.

It's unclear if you're asking about the casting or spinning reel. The casting reels do not come with a spare spool. The spinning reel should come with two, as pictured:

Cal, Yes, its a spinning reel, a 3000. As I stated, I have called twice and both times the same gentleman told me they come with one spool. If you are saying they come with two, who can I talk to at Abu. I have never bought anything from Abu before and this is definately stearing me back to Shimano. Thanks for your help

Call the retailer you bought from; or did you order on ABU website?

Guess there's a chance they could remove the spare spool; but never heard of that.

Return it and buy elsewhere man.

.. and boom.

The reel should come with two spools, a deep and shallow spool as shown in the review. PM coming.

My JDM 3000MSH only came with one spool, maybe USDM and other markets include two? Sweet setup though paired with the USDM Zenon 6'10"ml. My youngest daughter is a dropshotting machine with it.

Correct, the JDM models only come with one spool. The spare spool option is only a USDM perk.
