The worm gear on my Shimano Tekota 700LC started acting up a couple of weeks ago so I sought out a repair shop in Anchorage, B&Js recommended the Tackle Repair Center. Took the reel over and had it back good as new in under a week for less than it would have cost to send it to the factory. Granted it was under warranty but you have to pay shipping and that adds up.
The guy even had the parts in stock, looks like he has parts for just about every Tackle repair imaginable.
Now one of my two favorite reels is back in action for the remainder of the fishing season.
Just wanted pass it on.
561-0444 is the number.
