2024 Pricing

GCR highly values quality and attention to detail above all else.  Fishing reels are completely disassembled, down to the frame. Metal parts and bearings are first pre-cleaned by hand and then placed in an ultrasonic cleaner for deep cleaning.  We hand clean once again to get rid of any remaining grease or corrosion, fresh water rinse and then reassemble using high quality lubricants.

Drag washers are cleaned, dried and inspected. They are replaced with Carbontex drag washers if needed. Ball bearing covers are removed, flushed and then put into an ultrasonic cleaner. They are flushed again and tested on a bearing checker. If not free-spooling, the process will repeat. If still not responding well, they are replaced with high quality Boca or similar bearings.

We repair most makes and models of fishing reels, specializing in saltwater applications. Give us a heads-up before you come on what brand and model reel you own and what’s wrong and we’ll do our best to make sure the parts are on hand before you arrive. Email photos of your rod or reel repair to Reggie@GooseCreekRods.com or text 704.236.0897.

Due to increasing costs, GCR is continuously evaluating our pricing structure, sometimes on a weekly basis. everything we utilize in repairing, restoring, and crafting rods and reels is increasing in price, so we are forced to adjust in order to remain in business. Thank you to all our loyal customers who understand, and know that we will continue to keep costs as low as we possibly can.
