Sent my Daiwa Windcast 5500 to John for service and repair, as it was making a strange sound and was vibrating when turning the handle. John found the cause and managed to repair the issue at a very low cost. The reel arrived back in protective packaging and now works perfectly. Excellent service and a very reasonable price - I will be sending my other 3 off for a general service in due course!
Posted my Daiwa Saltist multiplier on Monday morning. John phoned at 10.40 on Tuesday morning to tell me that it was all fixed and a bearing replaced. Very reasonable price and arrived back in the post this morning. What amazing service and we had a nice chat too!
Had a damaged Scierra Fly Rod which I was unable to get a replacement section as the model was discontinued. Contacted Svendsen Sport who supply Scierra rods in the UK but they were unable to help. However their Customer Service gave me John Wadsworths details and the rest is History!! He repaired my rod as good as new at a very reasonable cost. I have fished four times with and have not blanked!! A very professional service that I would recommend to anyone with fishing tackle problems. Many thanks John.
well I found this web site /and how glad I did .first class service 2nd to none.and a price that was very fair for the work and service I got .
Was recommended Reel Value from members of the pikers pit forum. Made an enquiry to John re fixing a reel and sent it off to him for a service and repair.

John called me to tell me what was wrong and what he had done to fix it. Well it got returned and its better than new.

Superb service from start to finish. Highly recommended.
What a man! Fixed two reels which I thought were heading for the bin and at a great price. Excellent turn around too.
Would highly recommend John!
Excellent service - John was helpful and provided useful info over the phone. Items received quickly by registered post, packaged perfectly & exactly as ordered! Would highly recommend!
A friend recommended John's reel servicing to me and I was so glad they did! My 20 year old abu multipliers that have taken so much stick over the years lure fishing for pike came back silky smooth and run like new! Thanks John!
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

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.
