Professional Reel Repair Services

Servicing All Makes and Models of Fishing Reels

fishing reel repair servicesGoose Creek Rod and Reel offers professional, high-quality fishing reel repair services.

We have years of experience servicing all makes and models of fresh and saltwater fishing reels, including baitcasting reels, spinning reels, and conventional saltwater reels.

Fishing reels can be very complex depending on the make and model. Professional reel cleaning and yearly maintenance are highly recommended. Fishing reels should be disassembled, cleaned, and lubed every year. Regular cleaning and maintenance can extend the life of your fishing reel and bring it back to top performance.

Professional Reel Cleaning

reel cleaning by ultrasonic cleaning

All reels are completely dissembled, down to the smallest washer. Nothing is left intact. Metal parts go into an ultrasonic cleaner and all other parts are scrubbed by hand. Bearings are completely disassembled (shields removed), flushed out, degreased, placed in the ultrasonic cleaner, and tested on a bearing checker. Metal drag washers, pinion gear, main gears, and main drive shaft are cleaned and all corrosion removed. Drag washers scrubbed, degreased and a touch of Cal’s Drag Grease added. 

If needed, or requested, factory bearings replaced with new high-speed bearings and drag washers upgraded to Carbontex drag washers. The cost is only for upgraded parts and shipping.

Cost: Starting at $25 (plus parts)

Vintage Reels

Vintage reels were built to last. Chances are good that your old heirloom reels are still solid. Get them professionally tuned up and give them another fishing trip. They deserve it. Those great old classics are an absolute blast to fish with!

Cost: Starting at $35 (plus parts)


Goose Creek Rod and Reel now offers high-speed bearings as upgrades at an additional price. We also offer Carbontex drag washers as a great upgrade to stop those lunkers.

Some of the Common Brands We Service:

NOTE: We DO NOT service Daiwa reels that have the “MagSeal”. The oil is very costly and is rarely used. We have made the decision to turn down all Daiwa MagSeal reels. Our suggestion is to send those reels back to Daiwa for repair. 

Turnaround Time for Reel Repairs:

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 work on jobs in the order that they are received. We take great care in servicing your reel and we intend to do it right the first time. 

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.
