Sent John my Shimano reel, more than happy with the end result. Highly recommend him, pass his name on to others as he is the man we all need for our repairs.
Once again John many thanks for repair, Stephen
A really good and competitively priced service . Reel was repaired, serviced and back to me within a couple of days. Highly recommended.
I can't recommend John's services highly enough,i was given his number by a tackle shop after both of my okuma sea reals failed after a weekend fishing trip, I had given up on them and was looking at a renewal cost of £150 pounds, John repaired them and they were returned for just over twenty pounds. I have recently sent three very tired shimano baitrunners for repairs and service, again excellent value and customer service is second to none, many thanks James.
Many thanks to John for his fast and efficient service. He dealt with the repair to my Okuma Trio BF30 at a very reasonable price and was extremely helpful and friendly. I would certainly recommend his service and will definitely be using John in the future.
This man is amazing, two faulty Shimano 5000 GTE & RE reels, One with faulty oscillation the other the handle jammed solid within the body.
Sent off and returned within a few days looking like new and fully repaired and serviced. All this at a charge of £25.45 which included the return postage.
Highly recommended. :)
Once again John came to my rescue. I got to buy an old JW Young Rapidex centre pin. Some 60 years old. It spun about 4 times then old age had it gasping. Contacted John, who said send it in. He takes delight in having classic reels on his work bench. Within a few days it was returned, cleaned and sprightly and spinning like top. He is an amazing man, and full of Yorkshire integrity, and what good value.
These people really do know what they are talking about fantastic service and at a very reasonable price. I will be using you guys again sometime soon thanks for all your help.
A great thanks to John, I bought a new cheap reel off an auction site which after use I thought was great. I tried and tried to get some spare spools to no avail then an email to John, yes we have them in stock genuine and others that fit all at a great price. I rang him Tuesday mid morning and paid over the phone. They were dispatched the same day and arrived Thursday morning what else can I say superb service. Thanks again
Big thank you to John who fixed my bait alarm for me. Great service and got them back in a few days. He kept in touch and nothing was to much trouble. Top guy many thanks John shaun
John repaired and serviced one of my Daiwa Entoh's and feels like new now. Will be sending my others for a service. Top class service, excellent value and a pleasure to deal with. Would recommend to anyone.
John gave my old Daiwa Windcast reels a general service and now they feel like new, nice and smooth on the retrieve and the drag back to silky perfection.

Good friendly communication by John and a very reasonable price, highly recommended.
My Sheffield okuma center pin needed a new spring and a replacement screw which I'd lost. John came to the rescue. Totally reliable. Quick service and such good value. Highly recommended. Joe Palmer.
Top bloke who really knows his stuff.Made a great job of servicing my 2 shimano reels and got them back to me quickly,will definitely be using again and would recommend.
I sent my Okuma Solterra 15LX to John with a lever drag problem, he sorted the problem quickly and in my opinion for very little cost, excellent service and will certainly have no hesitation about using John again, Thanks John, great job!!
Literally just got off the phone after speaking to John and have to say out loud, THANK YOU JOHN.
Without his help I would not have got my senzora 13 receiver paired to my detectors before xmas 2017. With help like that it restores ones faith.
Thanks again.
I had 4 reels serviced by John earlier this year (Avet/Okuma/Penn & Daiwa), and all I can say is that the customer service that John provides is outstanding and at a great price. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking to have their reels serviced.
Excellent workmanship, very quick and great value for money. Impressive service will recommend to all my fishing buddies.
Cheers for putting a reel back together after me nearly trashing it.
Excellent service , a good thought provoking natter as well .
Highly recommended .
Excellent service. First class repair. Two of the handles on my ancient Okuma fly reel cartridges had fallen off. These were replaced at a very reasonable price, and returned very quickly. I cannot thank your customer service enough.
Sent my Mitchell 624 for service and clutch replacement. Excellent service the reel was back in no time and it feels great to be working again.
Off to Cyprus but will pass on your details over there. Thanks
I have a couple of 3000 size fixed spool reels that I use for bass lure fishing from the shore, mainly down here in Devon but also in Southern Ireland. They get a fair amount of 'hammer' and often end up dunked in salt water. One is a Shimano and the other is a Okuma. I have sent both of them to John at Reel Value for repair and servicing. I have been very pleased with the efficiency, courtesy, and high standard of work that Reel Value has provided. I live in a city that has a specialist reel repair and service centre less than three miles from my home, but I would far sooner send my reels to John and get them back working properly within three or four days and at a very reasonable price.
Sent 5 multipliers to John at reel value fantastic service thanks John .
Very fast turnaround by post and reels are absolutely gleaming

Thanks fantastic roll on the summer 👍
Had my 3 okuma big pit carp reels serviced and repaired. Great service and such a quick turnaround. Thank you John.
Had a problem with the level wind on my Penn 330GT?Sent it in to John it was repaired and serviced within a week at very very reasonable price?John is a tackle benders best friend .Thanks John
Posted a shimano tld 15 & a daiwa sealine for service/ repair on Monday. Both serviced and ready for the return post Saturday morning. Recieved 2 days later serviced and ready to use. Highly recommended
I've had some alarms paired up to receiver, very good communication and a very fast turn around in receiving them back. Many thanks and highly recommend

Sent a Sage fly reel recently for service and repair.
Thanks for the very quick and proficient work done at a remarkably reasonable price.
More work will definitely be coming your way
Sent John my Shimano TLD Multiplier, he phoned when it was done and sent it back with fast delivery. I am very happy with the result, his price was great, I highly recommended him. I will be sending more work his way.
I sent john two reels PENN INTERNATIONAL 975 LD MULTIPLIER AND DAM 431 LDL QUICK POWER CHAMPION LIGHT TROLLING 4 BALL BEARING LEVER DRAG. They were in poor condition he repaired them and sent them back within 1 week now "THATS WHAT I CALL SERVICE" and the cost was very reasonable. Thanks verymuch John i will be using you all the time now i have found you. thanks again
I sent John two identical Dam Quick reels that had stopped properly functioning as bait runners and he sorted them within a day of receiving my parcel. He phoned to confirm he had mended them and the price was so reasonable, fantastic service! I just wish everyone I deal with was that good. Thanks very much John.
Excellent service, customer relations, and at a very reasonable price. Sent three shimano reels all with broken anti reverse, John even phoned me to discuss what he had found, a real gent. All received back mended and in immaculate condition, thanks very much John.
Sent my Shimano multiplier reel for a clean an service and I had it back withi days, fully serviced and cleaned and looking like new. All this including postage cost me the princely sum of £13.00. A bargain in anyone's language. Throw in John's customer relations and you just can't go wrong. I will definitely be dealing with him from now on for all my angling requirements.
Didn't clean my Greys Gmag6 properly after its last outing,so it ran like a bag of spanners
Sent it to John to have a look at.
He rang me to say it was ready and even gave me advice on how to set it up properly.
One week later its back and runs like new,i have learnt my lesson with reels and saltwater but if I have any mechanical issues then John is the guy I will contact first in the future
Many thanks Colin
just received back my much abused shimano 10000 xte's and diawa spod reel all cleaned and serviced
and smooth as silk cant believe the difference John has made to these reels second set of reels John has serviced for me this year good turn round and excellent value have already recomended him to several friends
John thank you so much for sorting my reel with its stuck cassette. Without your expertise I would not have been able to use the rest of the cassettes. Your helpful responses to my plea and the highly efficient service was much appreciated
john is a proper gent,very helpful,repaired my old firewolf reel as good as new now,returned in a week,as cheep as chips,will pass on to friends,thanks again john
I had an old Okuma Magnetix reel that had been very reliable but I had abused to the point of failure.
John did a very cost effective repair and it is now good as new.
He also supplied me with two more identical reels brand new - at a price better than hours of web searching could achieve.
Most important of all his excellent advice guided me back to my Okuma Magnetix where I had been searching for worse but much more expensive reels.
I will be back and I will recommend this service to anyone.
Thank you John and Reel Value for your excellent service. I dropped my front drag knob of my Okuma tri rex reel into a lake and lost it. I trolled the World Wide Web for a new front drag knob to no avail a Canadian gave me the name and wed site of Reel Value. They not only got me a replacement drag knob they (John) told me about the Okuma bait feeder conversion cap. You set the drag to suit line strength activate the free spool lever and the spool is free running. I felt sick when I lost my front drag knob but I've got a big smile on my face as I write this comment as my reel is not only fixed its better than the original version.
Look forward to my next purchase.
Regards Andrew
Fantastic service, unbeatable prices thanks John for a fast friendly service used twice now and would definitely use again,would highly recommend
