I can help you with all the service and upgrades and offer a 10% labor discount to members here. I would refer custom painting to Calfish. Painting and  mechanics are best handled by respective experts imo. I'm in Central NY. shipping ona  single reel should be around $6. Let me know if you have any questions.

Try: Stan's Tackle Repair Shop, 8 Fletcher Circle, Chicopee, MA 01020. Call first as this business is in his home. Phone: (413) 593-5085. I've been doing business with Stan for over 30 years. Great guy, low prices and excellent service.

Mike at DVT is about the only person I'd trust to do my reels were I no longer willing or able to do them myself. 

 

I work in an industry that requires extensive knowledge and exacting tolerances, procedures, and hand-fitting, and through my talks with the man, I have confidence that he has the knowledge to think around any problem which might arise with any reel on the market.

 

I also trust him to outsource any work that he cannot/will not do to the proper people. 

 

A mechanic is not a body repair man, and a gunsmith is not necessarily a gun refinisher.  However, good mechanics know good body men and gunsmiths generally have excellent firearms refinishers on call. 

 

Likewise, I'd send a reel off to Mike with an itemized order form of what I want done, and I'd feel confident that it would come back to me in the exact way I wanted.

 

Regards,

 

Josh

Mike @ DVT doesn't offer painting services.

Trey and Calfish have a thing setup between them. You send your reel to Trey and you'll receive it back painted and ready to fish. He's great to deal with and has good prices.
