- Return for general service on all reels that have been Blueprinted before by us
Can we just service a reel and not blueprinting it? ....We do offer regular service on reels, but first time through our shop your reel “must” be Blueprinted by us. Also Blueprinting / service does not include cost of replacement drag washer if needed. Reel blueprinting and servicing does also not include the cost of replacement parts such as bad bearings or broken parts.
What's Blueprinting? ...The process includes maching the stainless plate and cam in your reel. We then custom build your reel so it has 1-2 pounds of drag when you put your reel just into gear. Then we build your reel for the specific amount of drag that you asked for at strike or full ... for example 25#'s of drag at strike. Add itionally we have a few models where we can do what's called Blueprint plus ... what that does is guarantee 50% more drag pressure when sliding the lever from the strike position up to full/sunset.
Do you sell / put on braid? Yes... We us a variety of different brands of hollow and solid braid. Usually best if you call to discuss top shot length and then we can give you all the details.
Do you clean braided line? ...We offer Braid removal & cleaning for your reels. We will remove your Braid, wash your Braid in warm water and completely dry it, inspect the Braid and clean your spool. We then apply Carnauba wax to your spool, and we will re-spool the line back onto your reel. The cost to do this is $60 min for the first 500yds and $10/per 100yds over 500yds.
Do you NEW sell reels? Yes.... We are an authorized seller for Okuma & Penn. Call us if you think you are interested in getting a new reel.
Gears... Higher high speed or Lower low speed? Yes ...We can ... depending on the reel model and sizes of your reel ... quite often we have gear modifications.
Handles? Knobs? ...In recent year’s fisherman have been looking to gain even more advantage while fishing. In turn they have been putting longer handles on their reels to gain even more power. Also, fishermen have been experimenting with different handle knobs on their reel. We can also put a longer handle on your reel depending on which one you currently have and/or we can just change your ‘handle knob’ to one that feels more comfortable to your preference. We have done this to numerous manufacturers reels. So if your favorite reel can use a longer handle or just a different knob, you can check with us and we’ll see what we can do for you to make that reel even better.
Why don't you hire someone else so you can get more reels done? In short the answer is this .... (Cal / Eric) We both work on every reel that comes through the shop and we build them like they were our own reels. We don't cut any corners ... and having a 1st class reputation is everything to us... and we stand behind all of our work. We are lucky that our customers are so awesome and understanding that the custom building of their reels is not something that can be done efficiently overnight.
