Broken JW Young 1535

I have an old JW Young 1535 that has a broken drag pawl pin. It is really not worth much, except my wife gave it to me as a gift several years ago. So because of the sentimental value I'd like to fix it, or have it fixed. Does anyone know where I could purchase a part like this? I was told that the Hardy pins will fit. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have two 1535's and a Hardy Marquis Salmon #2. Pins certainly look the same...the pawls certainlly can be swapped...so I can't see why the pin couldn't be. Question is why would you rob a Hardy to fix a J. W. Young...wife notwithstanding The Young has two pins anyway doesn't it ...why not just use the other or get some machinist in one of the local paper mills to have a look at it...some of them do fantastic work.

Chare,
I certainly wouldn't rob a Hardy for a JW!
No... the parts are hard to come by for the JW's, now that the company is defunct. The ol' JW's were great workhorses of reels, if a little heavy. I currently use a Hardy Marquis Disk 9,10, 11 on my 9'6" 9wt HMG, and have a Hardy St. Aiden on my 9' 8wt Eagle GT. I still have an old JW 1530, which is currently relegated to backup duty on an American Outdoors Graphite 8'6" 6-7wt. Despite that, I would still like to have the old 1535 at 100%. It does still work OK with the one pawl. Thanks for the feedback!
Incidentally, what part of the Rock are you from??

You wouldn't know anything about the Hardy Viscounts, I suppose?

My buddy has a Viscount click pawl drag. Nice sized reel for grilse and medium salmon, with lots of room for backing of 150 yards or more, and pretty light for it's size. The dark finish is a tad finicky, so you have to be careful where you lay it down, because it scratches easily. They are LOUD! If you like to hear a reel scream, nothing sounds as sweet as a big Hardy click pawl with a fresh atlantic on the other end! He loves the reel, and doesn't regret the price of buying it. Some tout the fact that the "new" Hardy's don't have the quality that the "old" ones had. I quite disagree, they've been great performers for me. I personally purchased the first Hardy (St. Aiden) after hearing my buddy's 25 year old Marquis Salmon scream up on Mercer's Pool, Adies stream. Personally I think if you are looking to buy a reel to handle medium to moderately large fish, and plan to use it in fresh water, the Viscount is a great choice.
The Bougle... now that's something else altogether. Just wish it wasn't soooo expensive. Hope this helped a wee bit.
Tight lines!

I want to load it with 300 yds of gelspun backing and SA Mastery Spy XLT line (140 ftr). I don't know if the 9/10 will handle it. But I think they make a 10/11, too.
Are they discontinued reels or new models?

Good question. They were just introduced in 1999, however they don't seem to appear in the 2004 line. Odd. They've (Hardy) joined forces with Cortland, so you never know what we'll see from them now. Regardless, they will still put out a quality product. Albeit at a price.
Tight lines!

I just e-mailed Hardy in England...they should be able to straighten it out. Do you know which model your buddy has and how much he paid for it?

Sorry about that, he has the 8/9 wt model. LeBaron is a Quebec mail order company, with some very good prices. http://www.lebaron.ca
According to the online catalogue, they have the MKIII, I think at 185 plus tax and shipping. Hope this helps.
Tight lines!
