Fishing Reel Repair
Fishing reels can be very complex depending on the make and model. Professional cleaning and yearly maintenance are highly recommended. Reels should be disassembled, cleaned, and lubed every year. Regular cleaning and maintenance can extend the life of your 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!
