Jim's Reel Shop Service

Abu-Garcia, Akios, Penn & Mitchell fishing reel servicing

We service ABU, Akios, Mitchell and Penn reels 

Reel servicing at Jim's Reel Shop comprises of a total parts breakdown of a reel. Reels are stipped down to their components. All parts are degreased and ultrasonically cleaned to remove all contaminants from internal and external surfaces. This way we are able to inspect all reels properly. After a parts inspection all defective parts are replaced with genuine Mitchell or Abu-Garcia parts and reels are tested. After satisfactory testing reels are lubricated with top quality oils and greases. Our telephone number is 0752 314 2760 if you wish to know more about our reel servicing.

We do our best to offer efficient servicing. We are able to do this as we have many thousands of parts in stock.  The price for a complete breakdown and overhaul including any repairs is £19.99 (not including parts and postage, these are extra)

Please send your reels with a note including your name, address, contact numbers along with a brief description of any known faults. No need to send any payment, we will invoice you at the end of the servicing. Please send your reels well packed to:-
