Does anyone know of a local shop to repair a Shimano reel? I seem to be having a problem with reel free-spooling when ever it feels like it. Sort of causes a few problems here or there. Thanks!

We may only see what we look for.

Thanks for the welcome and thanks for the info.
It makes sense to attend a meeting and I can drop it off then.

The name of the place is "Sportsmans Repair Shop". I have been using them for years and I can't complain. I usually send my reels out to them with a note as to what's wrong with them and an amount that I don't want then to go over for the repairs on each reel. For instance, A Garcia 7000 cost about $120.00 new, so I tell them if it's going to cost more than  $50.00 to repair forget it I'll buy a new one. Also I get good feed back from them as far as how to adjust the reels to work better and last longer. And how good some reels are and which brands just don't cut it.
Check out their web sight at: http://www.sportsmansrepair.com or phone them;(715)693-6634.

Thanks for the lead. I have heard of Sportsmens and I will actually be out there in Wisconsin (fishing in the lunge capitol of the world), so I will stop in and drop it off.

I got my first baitcaster last winter and am having some problems with it. Its a Shimano Catala 300. I'm sure its set up similar to the other Shimano models and I know that some of you are familiar with them so I thought I'd run it by the club before mailing it away. I'm pretty sure its not broken and that I just messed something up when I was playing with the breaks.

When I cast the line really screams off the real and then just stops in mid air. No backlashes but bad casts. I'm sure my inexperience has a lot to do with it but the other problem is that sometimes when I push the button down, the spool doesnt turn and it takes a hard tug to get the line out resulting in the backlash.

Any thoughts? If I brought it to the next meeting would someone be able to take a look at it? Thanks guys. I appreciate it.

nj matt-

this is what i think but take it to ray at the fishing counter when you go to g. he'll look at it.

sounds like the line is digging into the under layers. are you using braids - then it could be rthe problem.

also, after you play with the brakes, replace the spool. prior to putting the outer frame on, shift the grey thumbar from the down posiiton to the up posiiton. push the thumbar up essentially. then place the outer frame on. if you do not push the thumbar back up, there is sometime problems.

hope it helps

I just dropped my Shimano at the Sportmens Center in WI for repair. Found out there was a recall on it and I am getting a brand new one. Can't beat that!
