Rod & Reel Repair

Ben’s Reel Service has over 25 years of experience in servicing freshwater baitcasters of all major brands. That’s our specialty and that’s ALL we service. Tournament bass fishermen have relied on Ben’s Reel Service for years for the repair and maintenance of their high performing reels as well as custom crankbaits for the small “edge”.

We do NOT service freshwater spinning reels or saltwater reels. We recommend Goose Creek Rods for freshwater spinning and saltwater reels.

We stock a wide range of the most common baitcaster parts including bearings, pawls and more to keep turnaround time down to a minimum. We utilize ultrasonic cleaning (as well as pre cleaning by hand) and we break the reel all the way down to the frame. We use only quality OEM lubricants and reels are thoroughly tested upon completion.

We also provide high-quality fishing rod repair services. Whether it’s a missing guide, tip or handle or grip replacement, we’ve got you covered. We carry most guides and tips in stock.

“Bag” Reels

Ben’s Reel Service DOES NOT service reels the customer has tried to repair themselves and couldn’t get it back together. More often than not, no matter how careful the customer is, there is usually something missing. It is very important for us to inspect and note the order and orientation of the parts as we disassemble the reel for service. Failing to do so, it takes additional time to diagnose the issue.  So we have made the decision not to work on customer-disassembled reels at this time.
