    Had 4 salmon reels that needed varying degrees of repair, and on the recommendation of this board I boxed them up and sent them off to Tuna Reel Trouble in Ludington.

    Man was that the right decision! Tom and Pauly are great guys and do great work. All reels were completely torn down and cleaned, drags upgraded and line counters replaced on two. And he had everything back to me in 2 weeks. Pauly said that if I was in a hurry he could of had them back to me sooner. All reels are now like new. And the best part....$40 for labor + parts! How can you beat that? I highly recommend Tuna's Reel Troubles!

    I've had a few dealings with them. I've yet to be disapointed.

    They were nothing short of amazing for us to. We dropped off a reel at 7pm and we had it back at 3:30am the next day. Talk about hand delivery best out there IMO

    I sent them a Diawa Accupdepth that I was having problem's with. They fixed and sent it out the day after they received it. Great service!

    So right King, Tuna is the best and most reasonable person repairing reels that I've ever known. For me he's local, but his personna and willingness to service anyone/anywhere is also what keeps him busy and popular. Even if your equipment is old and looks worthless/hopeless, ask him, he may just have the parts you need. He's been at this quite a few years and serviced any reel you could imagine. Good post. ;)
