Fishing Reel Repair


Professional Fishing Reel Repair Services

Fishing Reel Repair, Indian Trail, NCLooking for professional fishing reel repair and reel cleaning services in Union County? You've come to the right place! Dixie Rods offers expedited turnaround, personalized service, and professional, quality workmanship.

Dixie Rods has years of experience servicing all makes and models of fresh and saltwater fishing reels, including spincasting, baitcasting, spinning, and conventional reels. If you are not completely, 100% satisfied, we will make it right or you owe nothing!

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.

At Dixie Rods, we completely disassemble the reel, clean all metal parts in an ultrasonic cleaner with degreaser and reassemble, applying just the right about of oil and reel grease to keep your reel operating at peak efficiency for a long time.

Bearings are opened, cleaned and reassembled, and if necessary, replaced. The outside of the completed reel is lightly sprayed with a silicone lubricant to help prevent moisture buildup and corrosion.

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!

Upgrades *NEW*

Dixie Rods now offers Boca Bearings and their famous Orange Seal bearings as upgrades at an additional price. We also offer Carbontex drag washers as a great upgrade to stop those lunkers.


Turnaround Time for Reel Repairs:

All repairs will be done as quickly and efficiently as possible. We are accumulating a large parts inventory, but due to the vast number of fishing reels on the market, we may not have your exact part at the time of service. These parts will be ordered as quickly as possible to get you fishing.
