Your fishing reel can often be the most expensive and technical piece of kit in your tackle box. The average modern fishing reel is a complex set of gears and mechanics containing lots of tiny parts – the purpose of each is only known to a select group of highly skilled engineers. It is for this reason that your reel must be treated with respect, and carefully cared for. Regular reel maintenance will keep your equipment in excellent working order, destined to perform at the most critical of times.

All repairs are completed on-site – no equipment is sent to third-parties. Our technicians will advise prior to repair whether the reel can be repaired by the manufacturer under warranty. Our technicians are available for advice and discussion on your reel, whether in person or over the phone.
Our workshop is fully equipped with all tools required for precise and careful servicing. We stock a large inventory of reel spare parts, including gears, handles, miniature bearings, drag washers, lubricants and specialised custom parts. Any parts not in stock are ordered from our large supplier network.
Reel servicing frequency varies depending on usage, however it is recommended at a minimum to have your reels serviced at least once per year. This prevents the build up of sand, salt, oil deposits, grease and other foreign particles that can clog the working components.
Every reel service includes a complete overhaul; all components taken apart, cleaning, inspection, lubrication, and moisture inhibitor application of all interior and exterior parts.

Australia-Wide Servicing by Courier
Reels: use adequate protection to prevent the reel from moving during transit. We recommend either bubble wrap, plenty of newspaper, foam packaging etc and a sturdy cardboard box.
Rods: if the rod is more than 1pc, take apart. Place cardboard over all guides and tips. Place the rod inside a length of PVC pipe or strong cylindrical cardboard packaging. Note: most couriers have length limits of 1.5m.
