If Everett isn't too far for you I see a lot of guys on a striped bass forum talking about Fishing Finatics B&T for rod/reel repair and service.

The only other I could highly recommend is just over the border in Nashua NH

Granite State Rod and Reel.

Jeff, I send my gear out to DVT. 

 

I do go to Arlington Bait and Tackle for last minute senko buying. I like to throw him business. Nice guy, but he doesn't service reels.

Ditto on the sending my reels out to DVT.  He’s cleaned and tuned most of my baitcasters.  Mike’s work and pricing are excellent.  He’s upgraded some of my reels too, always telling me what does/doesn’t need upgrading.

 

I have The Sportsman’s Den near me for live bait, quick tackle purchases, and firearms.  I don’t know if he services reels though.

I also do my best to get over to Arlington bait & tackle.   He has a great selection of stuff including lead free jigs and weighted hooks along with many lures you wouldn't expect a small shop to have.   Rod is a great guy!!

I've recently started working on my baitcasting reels myself, a little bit of research, time and practice goes a long way.  Perhaps not for everyone but now that I've cleaned/serviced and replaced numerous parts in my Reels I can't see spending money for someone else to do it.

over the last fifty years ive tried them all, some are good, all do their best, but,....Mike at Delaware Valley Tackle has outshined them all as far as im concerned,...He gets all my reels from now on.

 Steve at Als bait and tackle in beverly across from the public pier used to do my repairs and servicing and did a good job. But I haven't been up there in a few years and I'm not sure if he still services reels
