Hi,

I’d like to obtain info on the line guide behavior while casting with Abu Garcia reels:

Eon 3601,
Eon 5601,
5600 D6.

What should the line guide do while casting:

1. Stay solid
2. Moving by the worm shaft
3. Moving freely

The reason of asking is due to the fact that the two Eons I have behave differently.
I need to know which one to get for repairs .

Also have 5600 D6 where the guide stays solid (while casting only).
On my 5601 C3 the guide moves by the worm shaft while casting.

I called many repair and pro shops for information. Received mixed info.
There is no consent on the proper guide behavior.

Your information is highly appreciated.

Thx,

Mike is certain the guide should be solid (stationary) during casting.
Reel Doctor from Edmonton are certain the guide should be free.
I'm looking for somebody with experience, using Eon and D6 reels.

Thx,
