Reel Repair

Recommended Posts

Does anyone in the Kansas City area work on reels. I bought a used reel a while ago and I just bought a rod to put it on, well I just found out the tension knob does not work. The only way to use the reel is have the brakes all the way on 10 and even still I have to use alot of thumb just to keep it from backlashing. Thank you for any help.

Try flipping the shim inside the cast control cap.

DVT is a sponsor and offers a discount. The link is on the right.

I don't have a source for reel repair.

I found the issue. This little black piece that goes in the pinion gear (I think it is the pinion shaft)is broke. It looks like it was snapped. Now I just have to get a new one and I should be back in business.

Look into Mondo Tackle.  He has a very skilled guy that does his reel repairs.

Contact Delaware Valley Tackle.  Like J Franco said: their sponsor link is on the right side of this forum.  I've had several reels serviced/upgraded by Mike and am very satisfied with his work/pricing/service.

DVT does a great job and is a site sponsor.

 

Raymond at Mondo has a guy that does it but haven't heard or seen anything he's worked on.

Thank you guys. I will probably go to mono and see what they say there since it is local.
