Due to the current Covid-19 issues going on we are only servicing reels that are shipped to us no in-person drop offs or pick ups.
We can replace the plastic bushings on your drive gears, drive shafts and spools with stainless steel bearings or ceramic bearings.
Shimano Spool Ball Bearing Upgrade Factory Plastic Bushing removed.
Shown above is the factory plastic bushing removed from the Drive. Shaft of the older ”D” Series Shimano Curado and an upgrade to Ball bearing. This is now standard on the new 2008 Curado “E” Series. If you own the “D” series, your model may or may not have the ball bearing, upgrade to the Ball Bearing before the damage is done! The cost of this upgrade is only $8.00
Citica E Series drive shaft plastic bushing to ball bearing – $8.00
Luna drive shaft ball bearing upgrade – $8.00
We can replace the plastic bushings on your drive gears, drive shafts and spools with stainless steel bearings or ceramic bearings. A small investment for lasting performance. This will keep the gears in alignment, eliminate excessive tolerance and reduce wear.
We stock over 50 sizes of bearings to meet your needs. We only sell high quality bearings. No cheap substitutes.
All reel parts will be thoroughly cleaned to remove grit, grim, oil, dirt, and grease. Once your reel is finished, we will reassemble it and use premium grade lubricants. We will fine tune each mechanism to ensure bearings, spool, crank, and drag properly functions without hesitation. High quality reels will receive the same professional treatment but with higher grade lubricants for long lasting protection and functionality.
All repairs will be done as quickly and efficiently as possible, but we do take extra time for cleaning, maintenance and making sure your reel is restored as close to or exceed factory specifications. We are NOT a production line. We take great care in servicing your reel and we intend to do it right the first time. That said, if you have an immediate need for your reel such as an upcoming tournament, let us know and we will try our best, within reason, to accommodate you.
We are accumulating a large parts inventory, but due to the vast number of fresh and saltwater spinning, baitcasting and conventional reels on the market, we may or may not have your exact part at the time of service. These parts will be ordered as quickly as possible to get you fishing.
REELS TODAY ARE FAR SUPERIOR WITH THE ADVENT OF CNC MACHINERY AND LIGHTWEIGHT METALS. DISASSEMBLING, CLEANING, AND REPAIRING YOUR VERY EXPENSIVE INVESTMENT IS NO PROBLEM FOR US. ASSEMBLING THEM BACK TOGETHER IS A BREEZE!
