Reel Repair Crawfordville/Tallahassee Area

Postby KayakMacGyver » March 8th, 2019, 11:03 am

Can someone recommend a reel repairman in the Crawfordville/Tallahassee area.

Not interested in Reel Repair by Jim - If anyone wants specifics on why I won't use his service, you're free to PM me.

I wouldn’t use the guy Kevin’s uses. I had him service one of my new ci4’s and it came back making a noise, that now Jim is having a bear of a time figuring out. Good luck

I've used Masters of Gun and Rod for some of my firearms and I've liked them. I would recommend them if that quality carries over to their work on reels.

Jim does their work. I think he does a great job, but has a really long turnaround right now( do you want it done fast or do you want it done right?) :wink: ..... I’m sure KM has a reason l, and don’t want to hijack his thread. Just wanted to say it was the same guy......KM, if you have Shimanos, you can send them back to Shimano or to a certified repair shop, which I believe is half hitch tackle in pc...you can probably do the same for other brands as well. I’ve sent reels to them and had a pretty good turnaround.. good luck

Kast Kings don't break or need repair but if they do you just throw it away and get a new one. Image

Thanks Gator. That's a great suggestion that I forgot about. Going to go that route!
