    You beat me to it.....I have a real that needs repair too. Perhaps it is time to give Bob a try.

    I have used Bob, he took care of me at a reasonable price and time frame. I'd recommend him.
    He overhauled 4-5 Abu Garcia reels that were having issues.

    You can drop your reels off at 3 Rivers in Wasilla as well as pick them up when done which makes it nice and easy to get them to him.

    I had 3 reels overhauled there this last summer. Good work, too.

    I used Bob's reel repair. He did two reels for me. One worked great and one failed near the end of the season but I do not think it was anything he did so I would give him 5 stars.

    Thanks for the updates. I also got a PM from Bob. I think I'll give Bob a shot even though it looks like the tackle repair just moved.

    Happy New Years all! Is it spring yet???
