    Baitcaster and Spinning Reel Service

    I have a number of fishing reels that I would like torn down and cleaned up and greased/oiled. Considering my schedule and free time is limited (and when I get free time I want to be fishing not servicing) I am looking for a recommended individual or local company that comes through first hand referral. Name, phone number and last prices paid for service would be greatly appreciated. If for any reason you don't want to post the info for all then please just PM me the details. Thanks.

    Mike, The only one I am familiar with is Carolina Reels. Tommy can be contacted here 864 231 5914 and you can drop your repairs off at Lake Hartwell Fishing & Marine (use to be Garretts) and he'll pick them up and deliver then there. Can't talk prices and don't know how quick he is. HTH
    Good Fishing

    This is a late response to this post, but maybe others have the same question.

    A guy on the Lanier board posted this place a while ago: Cow Harbor Tackle - COW HARBOR HOME
    Here's what he said about them:

    "I sent 4 Penn Levelwinds and a Daiwa to these guys, only 10 bucks a reel plus parts to clean, lube, and repair. Ended up getting charged around 20 bucks per reel including shipping. Some reels required parts including a line counter part They replaced all the drag washers and cleaned them like new. They feel like brand new reels. Worth every penny and even fixed one I thought was surely dead."

    I usually repair and service my own reels, and have found the following place to be excellent for getting the right part for about any reel, good prices, fast shipping: Tuna's Reel Troubles Store

    My neighbor was the one who cleaned my Penn Fathom II Star Drag Reel. He's not a professional at cleaning reels but he has decades of experience in fishing. He did an wonderful job cleaning my reel. He was able to go through its nooks and crannies. Its good to know someone like him. I also found these sites to be helpful choosing fishing gear

    Post Fishing Gears and Services

    My cousin alexa was the one who taught me basic use of my Shimano Reel. She is a fishing lover, & love to rebuilt the fishing baits. She is a wonderful at teaching the tips and tricks of fishing. Its good to have someone like her in family. I found below sites are helpful choosing fishing gear for beginners or under a fix budget.

    This video has been so helpful to me in doing basic repairs for my Revo SX. It goes over basic steps of taking the baitcaster apart and putting it back together. If you take things slow, and have the time and patience for it, you can do a lot of these repairs yourself.

    Thanks wkelly thanked for this post
