Fishing from a kayak at sea is tough on reels, even if they claim to be saltwater resistant. Rather than spend fortunes on big name reels, I now use a GE3000 on my light spinning rod and a GE6000 on my 8-14lb boat road. Both promptly supplied by John at a fraction of the price for a brand name, in fact the braid probably cost more than the reels.

I recently sent an Okuma Sea Ray reel in for servicing. I received a great service from John, with regular updates, and a fast efficient service. I would recommend John for future services.
I went looking for advice on reels which i got, i then went looking for advice on beach casters which i got, i then went searching in Johns labyrinth of tackle and what did we find.... my perfect two rod quiver and very very competitively priced reels to boot. In fact the whole deal was totally exceptional and i can not rate johns service highly enough. he will look after you for sure, he has a life long customer in me that is for sure.
About time I got some reels serviced and this was the place to go. Cheap, reliable and friendly.
