Had a problem with my prologic smx alarms not pairing with receiver sent them off to John and he soon fixed the problem.
Great service and price and very helpful person.
Thanks John.

The cam on my Okuma reel jammed through corrosion. I was advised to replace the reel [throw away society]. I decided to replace the cam myself , enroute to finding the spare part I was lucky enough to come across John . Not only did he service my reel but he resurrected the corroded cam and all for a very reasonable price . First class service from a first class guy , sincere thanks John
I wanted a spare spool for my Okuma 80 reel and I contacted many dealers, with no success. I finally came across the "Reel Value" website and sent a message. A few days later, John made contact saying he had indeed got a used-but in excellent condition-spool. Within two days I had my spare spool at a very reasonable cost, including postage. I'm very pleased with the excellent service and the condition of the spool. I wouldn't hesitate to contact John again.

Thanks John!
Awesome service, great price. Thanks John.
Well, what can I say?? First rate service. Sent my Daiwa SL30SH to John for a service and investigation into the horrible noise it was making. Send the reel Monday morning, Tuesday morning received a call from John saying that the reel was ready to send back, arrived back with me Thursday. Looks better than ever, and feels incredibly smooth. can't wait to cast a line with it. Brilliant service from the legendary John, will be sending my other reel at sort notice
John had previously repaired two Sierra salt water fly reels that the manufacturers were no longer supporting. Returned as good as new.

This time two very dirty and gritty Hardy Angel reels returned as good as new. Great service and fast turn around

Thanks John
Really excellent service from John who fixed up my completely jammed Daiwa reel. Personal responses, considerate, great value. I've been discussing pollack lures and other bits and bobs with John since and will be using him as a go-to resource. So refreshing in days of automated mass online buying!
John's customer service is outstanding. He repaired the handle to my discontinued Okuma multiplier rather than simply replacing the part. He avoided expensive solutions and also fully serviced the reel at a very reasonable cost. I have been recommending him to all my angling friends and will not hesitate to use him in the future.
John has provided me with excellent customer service in sourcing some prologic parts. He went out of his way to be helpful and was very friendly. Not only did he find the part I was after but also got it to me very quickly. Excellent telephone manner and did everything in his power to help. I wish him all the best in the future and I will be a returning customer. Thanks again John it made a change dealing with someone who actually understands how to provide 10/10 customer service. A very rare thing in this day and age. Pleasure to deal with. Thanks again
Just got my Shimano 4000 from Reel Value having sent it for repair. What a great job carried out by John, it feels better than new and all at a very reasonable cost with a prompt return. Without doubt I Reel Value will use again . Cracking service and a really nice bloke to do business with. Thanks.
I recently had some issues with an SMX alarm and receiver. I reached out to John and he shipped me out the receiver and the alarm paired together. I got them after about 7 days which is great shipping across the pond! Thanks for the service John!
Excellent service from my initial enquiry to receiving my reel NEW. 10/10 5 stars from me john.
just received my daiwa regal-z 4050brt which I ordered on Friday fast service most reliable you get my 5 stars straight away hope to deal with you again in the future thanks
A brilliant service. My experience with John left me to feel that he is very good value for money. He had a high level of costumer service. I will definitely use you again.
Thanks again, kind regards
Can't thank John enough for repairing my Prologic reel. Friendly and helpful guy who proved to be good value for money. Highly recommended. He is a font of knowledge.
Excellent service on a repair on an old alarm and supply and re-pairing of a new prologic SMX alarm. Cant recommend the service and professionalism enough.....
Thanks very much

I had a problem with my alarms and contacted Prologic who put me on to John. I posted them from here (France) to Reel Value on the 2nd July. John phoned this morning to say they were fixed and on the way back to me. What an excellent service, thanks again John
Just had my shimano charter 2000 repaired and serviced what a great service they give
Just sent my Okuma Magnetix to Reel Value for service. Sent on Monday and back on Friday looking like a new reel. Brilliant service and will be sending more reels there in the future.
First time using reelvalue sent John a okuma cz-10cs which was turned around in just a few days. John was on the phone or emailed to keep me updated couldn't ask for better service will now be sending all my reels to John for service or repair.
I had a set of SMX alarms I sent them on Thursday 21st June 2018 i get them back by Monday 25th June 2018, so a big thenk you to the postal service and to John Wordsworth for an out standing service and at a very reasonable price.

Just had my Shimano long cast serviced, wasn't sure how much difference this would make but how wrong was I!! The reel is so much quieter and smoother, the price and turn around was also amazing. Will be sending my other reels in now.
Just had two Shimano 5000FA's serviced by John and they are now actually better than when I purchased them 12 years ago can't rate reel value highly enough ! Thanks John
Thank you for your rapid response to my queries and excellent service. I would not hesitate to recommend you most highly.
many thanks for the great job done on my middy reel.
great price and fantastic service, would not hesitate to recommend you. thanks again
Thankyou so much for your prompt return of my salmon reel. It was returned and repaired with minimal cost, a credit to you. without hesitation, I would highly recommend you. Thanks again
I contacted John about a broken Bait-feeder I had and if he could fix it and if so could he also supply a spare spool.
John responded very quickly and once I sent him the reel, he repaired it and posted it back to me including the broken gear from the reel and the spare spool in a shorter time frame than he quoted to me.
Well done John, for the excellent service that you provide in such a genuine and gentlemanly way.
I sent John a 20 year old silstar baitfeeder reel not thinking he would be able to do anything with it, low and behold within a week he had returned it working.The price and service is excellent a very good job done.Thanks again John i would recommend REELVALUE to any fisherman thats thinking of bining their gear to ring John first.
Got in touch with John via email, received email with contact number next day,rang him he gave me details on what to do.Posted my 20 year old silstar baitfeeder reel to him not thinking he would be able to do much with it ,but within week i received back and in good working order.Would certainly recommend REELVALUE to any fisherman that needs his help. Thanks again John a good job done!!!!
Although me and John live thousands of miles apart (Malaysia-England), he had no problem sending me the broken section of a Savage Gear Spinning Travel Rod I ordered and at the same time gave a complementary fix of the broken section. Tight lines forever John!!!

I contacted John as I had a problem with my Pro Logic alarms and I was going to france shortly. He sorted them out as soon as he received them and posted them back all within 48 hrs, I will definitely be using him again. The service and price was amazing. Thanks again 😁 😁
Reel Value serviced my Hardy Marquis salmon reels very quickly and for a very reasonable price. Thanks Reel Value I will certainly use your services again.
I sent off 2 x Abu Ambassadeur 7001 reels as the level wind mechanism on both was seized and the reels required servicing after lying for a prolonged period in the garage unused. I found reel value via search engine and after prompt correspondence sent the reels off for a quote, service & repairs. Once John received the reels and checked them he contacted me with the quotation which was explained in layman's terms and extremely reasonably priced. All in all it took 6 days to get the reels sent from the far North of Scotland to reel Value, repairs and full servicing complete and returned to me. A fantastic service with sensible costs and I cannot recommend John & Reel Value highly enough. This will be my first point of call for my next reels once servicing is required.
I was recommend to Reel Value by a number of fellow Tenchfisher members. I initially sent 3 reels off to John and was so impressed another 4 followed by return of post. The 2 Shimano baitrunners came back like new. Amazing service and amazing prices. Highly recommended !!
I had all sorts of problems with my biomaster some very difficult to detect the cause no problem for John though reel back to perfection now -simply fantastic service !
Had my daiwa spod reel repaired.
Great service and great comms.
Will deffo be sending my basias for a service.
First class service from a professional..quick dispatch of 2 handles for a Okuma Sheffield, very friendly guy..highly recommended,a pleasure, thanks John.
John has just serviced 5 reels and replaced parts and serviced another with a fantastic turnaround. Value for money falls short of adequately describing both the level of service and the overall cost of the work done by John. I wouldn't consider anyone else when having future work done on my numerous reels. Thanks again for the 1st class job and great value.....
had a few problems with these reel namely the penn fathom put them back together well good service and quick many thanks
Just got my TICA reels back. Fantastic service really quick turnaround and a great price. Will be sending other reels to John very soon top class.
Thank you John.
just got my penn surfmaster 8000 back and very pleased and will recomend to all i can what fantastic service and a price which amazed me real bargain ,cant thank you enough i now have a full working reel again for a tinny fee of £25 when all others told me to bin it hats off to you mate top bloke
Just got my Shimano biomaster back from John prior to receiving it he phoned me and went over the problem in detail explaining the problem of obtaining the necessary part but giving another solution without the part the reel is not perfect but it is certainly better than it was .
Part 2 - great service very reasonably priced will be using again soon
I have dealt with John before,this time he excelled himself 3 reels turned around in 24 hours,he even managed to repair one that I had had to bits myself (I made a right mess of it).

Yes he knows what he is doing.Yes he does the job quickly.Yes he is very reasonable with his prices. BUT the biggest thing is that I trust him and am therefore happy to recommend him to anyone.
Ordered something off reel value and really satisfied, very helpful and polite will definitely be getting all my stuff from here in the future!!
Excellent service I had a good quality reel saved from the bin which was re vamped and returned within 48 hrs for more than a fair price, you cant ask for more that....
Thanks John, sorted my sticky fred crouch trotter centrepin. So much better and great value. Quick turnaround and a phone call to let me know plus free advice on maximising its potential. 10 out of ten . I'd use you again and recommend your services to anyone . You clearly have the knowledge and skill.
Sent in 3x fox reels for service and repair ( very few service companies will touch em!) , Reelvalue did an excellent job in double quick time , really can’t believe how cheap as well, all three together cost as much as some companies charge for one ! Very happy customer here !
Thanks again John for another fantastic service on both of my Abu Soron reels! Always a gentleman and so fair with your pricing, always a pleasure to part with my money☺.
