Fishing Reel Service and Repair

New Product: Fishing Reel Lanyards!

If you are looking for expert Fishing Reel Service and Repair, you've come to the right place!

Hi, I'm John Finsterbusch (Fin) and I've been servicing and repairing most major makes and models of fishing reels since about 2010.

If you have a fishing reel that is either performing poorly or not working, you can get it to me and I'll clean it up and repair it as needed for you.  I can also super-tune your reel, equipping it with Smooth Drag Washers and Boca Bearings.

Service Includes

Service includes completely dismantling, cleaning, lubricating and inspecting your reel.  (And putting it back together!)

If I discover broken or badly worn parts that need to be replaced, that is where the repair comes into play.  I will ALWAYS call you to discuss your options and give you costs before I start repairs!

Repair Includes

Repair includes the replacement of broken and/or worn parts with new ones.  I do not charge any extra for shop time for this, only the cost of the parts.  I do not add any handling fees to shipping, either.  You pay only what I pay for shipping back to you.

I service and repair the following brands: Shimano, Daiwa, Penn and more.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
