    The automatic spring on my Robbie Dalton broke today. Where can I find replacement parts. I believe it was called a "gypsy". But I am not sure, I was only told that.

    The spring is 4 full turns. It is 13 mm across.

    thanks,

    You can buy springs like that either at www.mscdirect.com, or at a fishing reel repair shop. The bail return spring from a Penn 706 is what I used to convert a Boker Top Lock.
