Great service, great value and quick too. Very pleased with my reel working well again.
Fantastic service. Sent my three Daiwa Emblem reels for a well needed service. John kept me informed throughout the process and turned the reels round really quickly. Got them back now and running super smooth and looking good. Highly recommended. Great service at a great price.
Ordered a Progic thermo suit from Reel Value. Hard to find in UK as wanted a green one but really pleased with the service from RV. Product is great and price was best in country.
John did a really good job repairing my two much-used and much-loved Mitchell reels and at a very reasonable price. I will certainly call on his services again.
Absolutely brilliant service from start to finish! Fantastic turn around time ! Great communication. I had a black n gold saltist reel serviced with new bearings inserted... great price too ... will 100% be using Johns services again ! πŸ‘
I found John after a reccomendation from prologic. One alarms from a set would not pair with receiver and without proof of purchase i had no warranty. They reccomended him as a repair option. Glad to say i took it up and no fuss or faff job done, well packaged, good price, quick turnaround.
Sent John my Shimano Twin Power with a suspected line roller issue. He rifler filed it for me and sent it back at no charge! Amazing. Very grateful and will certainly be using him for all my reel repairs and servicing in the future. Many, many thanks. Mark
Great service reels like new very fast and john give me great advice on my bait caster will be sending more reels over soon thanks again john cheers james
don't hesitate sending your reels to this man absolutely outstanding nuff said
Absolutely fantastic services, got passed Johns details by a bite alarm manufacturer and he did everything he could to help right from the start. He managed to source the parts I required and kept in excellent communication throughout. He also found me the best postage deal possible so the price was even smaller than originally stated.
Excellent service and I would definitely recommend him to anybody!!!
Sent my old centrepin reel to John
Who within a week had serviced repaired and had it back to me
Spins better now in fact had to check to make sure it was same reel can't wait to use it
Thanks reel value be using you again
I bought a set of pro logic bite alarms off ebay from John and one of them went wrong,without a quibble John took them back and fixed the alarm really quickly what a top man,cheers John.
For newcomers, I have sent reels to John for several months now and he has done an excellent job repairing my assorted woes,at a perfectly reasonable price, with no charge when nothing actually needed doing (ie my own incompetence).
I pay by credit card over the phone and it is always a pleasure to have a chat with him. There is no question that he knows his business. No difficulty whatsoever recommending him, and even if you have a (rare as hens teeth) local shop that can do repairs, it is really easy to keep the box and send it back next time I have a problem by post (UK about £4 for a standard reel in a box).
Thanks John and keep up the good work!
What a fantastic service John provides, ultra speedy repair of the ratchet spring on my Centre pin and a service, outstanding and very rare these days to find such a service. Great communication and great price. I have already recommended John to my fishing buddies and will definitely use again for my other equipment.
Thank you John. πŸ‘πŸ»
Just a few words about the great service I recieved. The cost was far less than I anticipated and communication was second to none. Top class service, which is a rarity these days!
My pride en joy shimano 3000xd got dunked in the water, then it seized up because I didn't rinse it. I didn't no who to trust it with to fix the problem. After a lot of searching on the the web I sent an email to Reel Value. I got a reply next morning, and the message gave me confidence that this was the place to send it to.
Posted wednesday, got a call Friday, telling me all fixed and what was wrong. Paid over the phone, and will be back with me on Saturday. And all at an amazing price. You can't do better than that. Totally recommend.
Great service .I would definitely use again. Reels came back promptly and running smoothly at a fantastic price as well.
Thank you
Well after John's success with a reluctant drag I sent him another reel I had dropped and bent the reel foot. Back and good for use again. Many thanks John.
Excellent service, contacted John as i needed an Okuma Epix reel handle,paid over the phone and here in 2 days, definitely recommend Reel Value, will be getting some overhauls once needed cheers for you help John
Just had Penn 525 mag serviced by John. Once again a great job , excellent service , very quick turnaround and excellent value.
Only heard about John recently. I had problems with the drag on an old favourite reel and asked him if he could do anything with it. All sorted in a week. Excellent service.
My Okuma Epix Pro 50's have arrived back after a full overhaul by John and they feel like brand new.! Thanks John, you're "The Man".
I just had 6 Shimano reels serviced. They feel like new now. Very good value to money, fast turnaround and good personal service. I recommend John's reel servicing.
Absolutely brilliant service, would recommend John and reel value to anyone wanting a reel servicing.
Very fast turnaround and brilliant pricing!! Cheers John!!
The name says it all - absolutely brilliant service. John explained the problem with my 2 reels and the cost of repair [plus P&P] was well worth it. Less then half the cost of one of the reels new, and they were returned looking like new. Would definitely recommend this service.
Really good company to deal with helpful with good advice on all aspects of Angling, fast efficient service and postage, I had 2 Okuma Power liner PL865 reels serviced and minor repair done very pleased with the result, very competitive price I am very happy and would recommend this company to anyone.
Sent my receiver and alarms to be repaired/replaced as the receiver had stopped working. Repaired in rapid time and at an excellent price! Will be using for all my service and repair requirements from now on! Thanks John
Sent my daiwa saltist bg30 for service. Reel was fully serviced and a bearing replaced at a very reasonable cost. Turnaround time excellent.
I am a new customer and am highly impressed.
Thanks Reel Value! Three Shimano spinning reels sent in, two for a service, and one for a repair. All three had been used and abused (by me) saltwater fishing for Bass and all three have come back to me in excellent working condition, including the repair reel which I had written off as not repairable. Thanks John, great service! I will use again for certain. Highly recommended!
I got Johns number from my fishing friend,sent 4 multipliers for overhaul,I got them back very quickly,well packed and fully serviced.Friendly,professional service.
I sent John three Daiwa tournies and a Emblem spod reel for service. The cost was very reasonable and the reels were turned round in no time at all. I would definitely recommend Reel Value and would not think of sending my reels anywhere else in the future!
Thanks Mark.
Brilliant service, honest and up front from the beginning. John obviously cares about solving your problem. Prices are realistic, turn round was swift. Thank you very much John!!!
I sent John four reels needing various repairs all were repaired and returned within the week and all smooth as silk,full marks for a great service and will definitely use again
My SL30SH was making some horrible noises. When I looked up how to service it I had flashbacks to the days I used to strip down Mini engines and always have a few nuts & bolts left over on re-assembly ! So taking the wimp option I sent the reel to John who serviced and changed a bearing in it in no time and as cheap as chips. I'm happy in the knowledge that I will never again contemplate stripping down my own reels. John you get my vote mate.
What a great service and very helpful along the way. I had a 4 th R2L bite alarm that I could not get to speak with the receiver John sorted this out very quickly and at a very reasonable price. I would strongly recommend him for all your needs. Many thanks
John found me a travel case for my Savage Gear xlnt3 rod for a great price and got it in the post to me here in Jersey in double quick time.
Fantastic service, i wont go anywhere else now!

Thanks John.
Brilliant service and very cheap too! Would recommend if anyone needed any repairs or maintenance to their equipment!
Thankyou again😊
What excellent service, sent a reel on a Wednesday for changing left hand to right and was told on Thursday the reel had been received and sorted and would be on it's way back on Friday, received on the Tuesday all sorted, now that is outstanding service when the reel travelled from Cornwall to Rotherham and back in less than a week considering it was fighting Xmas postal chaos. Many thanks John.
Big thanks to john on repairing my prologic r2l alarms. Gave me great advice and a real speedy service when required
Thank you John for simply excellent service. I do enjoy using my Mitchell Matches but they had become un-workable. Not any more thanks to your skilled and speedy repair to the old machinery ... smooth as my trotting now - lovely job.
What a pleasure to do business with this guy, great communication, professional attitude, sorted my reel in no time at all, and at a very fair price.
In future if anything goes wrong with my gear, I'll just post it off to John, simply not worth worrying about it. 10 out of 10, they do what it says on the tin, diolch yn fawr iawn (thank you very much).
If you're looking someone to service/repair your reels that you can trust look no further that John. His work is professional, top quality and amazingly priced. I wouldnt let anyone else touch my reels, thanks again John
I was looking for the right part for my discontinued okuma baitrunner reel for a couple of months before I managed to find John, taking apart other broken reels to try and see if the part fitted my one but had no luck so I sent it off to John to see if he could help, I also included a reel that was in bits with a note saying keep it for parts or if not bin it, not only did he repair my broken reel but also put the other one back together and fixed it for me no more than a few days of me sending them.
Very good customer service
Great price couldn’t be any more happier, will be sending my two more well used reels off for a service very soon thankyou again
What a find. I have an Okuma Beachcaster Pro which has been discontinued for years. John somehow sourced the parts, reel fixed and returned in no time and at a ridiculously low price. I have no problem recommending John. I will be using him again. Many thanks
This is the first time I have used john as I only recently found him. He was able to provide the replacement part I needed for my multiplier reel at a very reasonable price compared to every other place I found it. John was very quick to respond to emails which was fantastic and the delivery time was amazing considering I live on quite a remote island. Thank you again John you're a life saviour and I shall definitely be shopping with you again.
John was extremely helpful at sourcing 2 spare spools for my Okuma reels, where my local tackle shop had tried and failed. What’s more he did it effectively at cost making virtually nothing for himself. Will certainly come back for reel repair and service and might take him up on putting together a carp kit when funds allow. Thank you John. Really appreciated.
Had a Okuma Komodo not running right.Sent the reel to John and had it fixed in a few days.Loved the service and the cost was brilliant.Anything wrong in the future will get sent straight to him with no hesitation.Totally Recommended.Many Thanks.John
I have used John a couple of times now, he provides a very fast service and at a good price, I will be back.

I would also have no problems recommending him to anyone.

Great service John many thanks.

Had a problem with the receiver for some Sensora alarms (batteries had been left in and they leaked). It was beyond repair but John found a new one and gave the alarms a once-over then paired them up, all for £20. Highly recommended
Sent off a set of Pro Logic Sensora 3 + 1 alarms with a faulty receiver (batteries had been left in and they leaked!). Beyond repair but John had a new receiver which he paired up with the heads, gave everything a once-over and sent them back, all for £20. Highly recommended
