I ordered a part for a Hardy fly reel that I could not obtain anywhere else. 

Mike sent it to me from Canada to Scotland and it came very quickly and cost relatively little to send.   An absolutely fantastic service especially for obscure parts that are very difficult to buy.
  I will certainly be using him again, completely hassle free buying.

And by the way, for whomever needs to hear it, Cindy has been a tremendous help to me. You have a true gem in her!!

Hi Kristina,


Wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the service provided by Mike's Reel Repair.   The Spool Assembly (RD 7983) I ordered for my Stradic 4000 FH arrived in perfect condition.   It is an obsolete part but you had the one in stock and I feel fortunate that the person I talked to at the Shimano Service Center referred me to Mike's!   If I am ever in need of any other parts for any of my reels I certainly will go to your web-site first!   


Thanks again for your excellent customer service!


All the best!

Hi Cindy,
Hope you are well. Just to make you aware that I received all parts and my reel is as good as new. Thank you.
Would you mind forwarding this email to your manager as I think it is important they see this message.
I am ordering these parts from the other side of the planet, as I am not aware of a shop anywhere near to me. When I originally contacted you, I was quite skeptical to be honest as my order is tiny and you will need to go through some hassle to understand what I need and ship it all the way out here. However, I couldn't have been more wrong as I received a top class service with Cindy's help who went back and forth over email and phone with me to not only ensure I was buying the correct parts, but also to get me like a dozen different shipping quotes to pick from.
Thank you Cindy and everyone at Mike's Tech Shop for helping me get the parts I need.

All the best from Bulgaria.

After trying to repair 2 reels several times without success, I contacted Mike for advice.


After 2 emails my problem was solved.  My emails were answered promptly and great advice was given.


I will definitely be using his services in the future for parts, service and advice, and passing on the great customer service to all my fishing friends.

Hello- I just wanted to share that I received the parts for my reel today. I installed them and my reel is back in business. I wanted to thank you for your service.  I found your parts to be a lower price that other vendors. More importantly, I needed to amend the order and had excellent communication online and got a phone call to confirm and take my card number. People were kinds and quickly amended my order.
Thank you!
I will share your contact with my angler friends.

Hi Cindy, 

Thank you so much for all your help and the speedy delivery on the parts for our electric motor.

The rain & wind has finally stopped and my husband and a buddy are out trying things today…happy fishing  :0)

We will definitely be keeping your contact information and certainly have passed Mikes Reel Repair around to many friends!!



Mr. Ken R, via email:

Linda and Mike THANK YOU for your help !!! I had already come to the conclusion that if you want real help with something just go to a site in Canada and that still stands with all that you did for me !! I will keep looking but all the reels that I have seen on e-bay do not show the inside and look like they are in poor shape on the outside so can imagine what the gears look like. A recent one on e-bay with the reel spool still in a plastic bag and reel still in the box with all the papers sold for over $125 the last time I viewed it. I will try and sent a separate e-mail with the schematics picture and a couple of pics of the reel. I will keep your site as number 1 if I need anything else in the future. Again thank you for all the assistance and help !!! Ken

Mr. Ken D, via email:

Hello Linda
Thank you, the envelope was in the post box yesterday when I popped by. All is well. 
Thanks for the parts, they'll be used to refurbish a very old and well used Hardy Longstone once owned by the author of "Mooching The Salmon Fisherman's Bible".
Kind regards

Joey M, via email:

 So long story short I had previously called a shop close to Ottawa Ontario (where I am) & they had told me they didn't have it... The day you emailed me that it would work they had found one & called me back. So I took it, I wanted to let you know because the lady that helped me was extremely nice. I just wish you guys could be closer! And with the Canada Post situation (postal strike) it would of taken a long time before I would of received it & I have a small tournament this weekend.

So Thank you very very much & please tell the lady that helped me that I very much appreciated her kindness & help :)

Till next time,

Thank you for having available on your web site the schematic diagrams. I was able to fix an old Lew's BB that was given to me by a good friend who has now passed away. It had been reassembled wrong and I was able to correct that, thanks to the diagram on your site. I look forward to fishing with it amid fond memories of my friend.


Ed C, via email:

Hi Mike, I wont to thank you for you help. You were so into helping me, I was very impressed!  You don't get customer service like that any more.

Brendan M, via email:

I would like to sing the praises of one of your representatives that has been amazingly helpful. Cierra has helped find a small screw that I have been unable to find anywhere else for some time. She has been timely in her replies and as nice as could be. I just wanted to let you know what a great experience I have had with her. It is because of her I will continue to use this site and highly recommend it to fellow anglers. Thanks  for your time.


Mike M, via email:

I just wanted to let you know how amazingly helpful Cierra was to me regarding my part inquiry and subsequent order placement.  She was extremely kind and more importantly informative.  I can’t express how much that means to a first time customer…she should be recognized and commended for her efforts.

I've been looking for the screw cap for my Shimano reel for quite a while. After looking at the parts diagram from your site I found the part and It was in stock. Ordered it and it works perfectly. Thanks Mike's Reel Repair!


Sean, via email:

Hi Mike,
Thank you very much for the dual bearing levelwind and idler for my 7000C3.
I have had your kit in my 6500 rocket for a few years. The ceramic pawls are sensational as well.
Mike, I fish on cape cod in the surf. I have been using Penn synthetic oil and grease in my reels and like it. I use red (7000) and yellow (6500) RF in my spool bearings.
What are guys using to lube the bearings in the levelwind system and idlers?? I have been using penn synthetic thus far.
Also do i need to pull the idler off to lube it properly??
Thanks again for an outstanding product.


Via email:

You truly went above and beyond to help me, I wish there was a way to thank you! You rarely see this level of service anymore.
Kudos to you, Mike and everyone else at the shop! Thank you!


Rick C, via email:

Just a quick note to thank you for the excellent service and speedy
delivery of the transducer bracket I ordered on the 3rd and received
in the mail on the 7th. If and when I need any fishing equipment
repair I will definitely be in touch, as well as recommending your
business to friends . Thanks again, Rick


David, via email:

Thank you, I greatly appreciate that-customer service above and beyond anything I expected. You have made a loyal repeat customer out of me. I'm planning on upgrading 2 dozen ambassadeurs (over a period of time) and all of my parts will come from you.
I also service and repair all of my friend's reels and I've been bragging about the increased performance I've gotten from the parts of my most recent order.


Chris F, via email:

Mike, no need to reply, but your instructions were perfect - worked like a charm, and I already had the punch from my gunsmithing tools.

Again, many, many thanks. It is rare to find someone who takes the time to help out even when they are not being paid for service.....it will come back in spades, I will let every sportsman I know how great your customer service is.



Michael M, via email:


Hi Mike!

I finally got a chance to take the boat out and check the down-rigger after putting the new parts in.  It worked great!  It met all my expectations and saved me from having to buy a new one.  I really appreciated all of your guidance, help and quick responses putting it all together. You're the best!

Thanks Much!


D.F. via eail:


Hi Mike’s Reel Repair
Just thought I’d let you know that my Hummingbird 717 is now working!
   I want to thank you for mailing me the transducer. I missed the delivery the next day by 15min. but I picked it up the next day at the post office, tested it in a bucket of water and finally took the boat out on Saturday with sonar and everything else working perfectly. It’s nice to get good service from a company like yours. To send me the transducer free of charge and next day delivery is not seen much these days...
   Keep up the good work/service.
Thanks again
Glenn, via email:
Thanks again for your speedy and helpful response.  The world need more people like you that would go out of their way to suggest that another company might be able to help me.  I am very surprised and thankful for all your help.  What I have done is drilled out the old screw and re-tapped to fit another screw of lesser quality, should the owner need a better fix of this 1994 reel .  Thanks again It has been a pleasure doing business with you and I look forward to doing more business with your company in the future.

I just recieved my partial shipment. Thank you for your usual excellent service and communication. I have made purchases form many online stores and I can honestly say that your business is by far the best.

Thanks much for a wonderful website where a person can find something easily. And it is free! Thanks much again.
Rob W, via email:
I went through the reel and made a list of worn or missing parts!  Yep, there was a reel repair guy at a mall and he cleaned and oiled it for me a few years ago.  It didn't work right after I got it back so I went to have him check it but there was a note on the door saying he had passed away.  I found several parts that he left out.  I am also ordering a few extra of some the easy to loose parts.  Thanks for your help.  Great website.
Jim W, via email:
Thank you!  It’s an old reel, but one with many memories attached to it.  With your help, it will soon be out on the Mississippi River catching a record catfish.  I’ll mention Mike’s Reel Repair when they write me up in the newspaper!  ----Jim
