I have just received back my two Okuma BF40 reels, purring like kittens, following being serviced by John. I came across Reel Value scouring the internet as I needed to have my RAW II reels serviced before Svensden had appointed a service provider. From my first telephone conversation with John, he came across as being very knowledgeable and patient, this prooved to be more than true as I cannot fault the quality or thoroughness, of his work. He is always very fair and extremely good value for money, I do not send my reels anywhere else! Well done John and thank you for being such a helpful and honest chap!
Ordered lures on the weekend, despatched Monday, delivered Tuesday AM and catching fish Tuesday PM after work!
Excellent service as usual, Thanks John
Sent 2 reels in for repair and service from Cyprus, both reels returned like new in under a week, friendly and professional service, would definitely use again. Thanks and regards.
I've just had my 10' salmon fly rod back from a repair by John Wordsworth and I'm delighted with the result. The tip section of the rod - a Scierra - had snapped and a replacement wasn't available as the rod is no longer on sale. John repaired the broken section and also supplied a new tip section. I couldn't tell the difference when either the repair or the new section were fitted. All this was done swiftly and at an excellent value-for-money price of less than £40 including postage to and back from Reel Value. Superb service and craftsmanship. I'd highly recommend Reel Value.

Many, many thanks
Two reels serviced and repaired and returned in less than 1 week. Excellent service and great price. Have already passed on information regarding this web site to some mates and would recommend to all. Thank you.
Thanks for your time and patience John with me and my chair.Unfortunately you were unable to help.
This was purely a manufacturers problem.
I would not hesitate to contact you in the future with any "fishy" problems.

Had a bad problem with my prologic wusb receiver and was told to contact John at reel value, best move ever. This man brought my receiver back from the brink. This man is amazing. Thank you....
I had a nearly new Daiwa 2508Tdx go horrible on me . An annoying click and wobble . I was looking for someone to sort it for me and I have to admit when I read these references I was a bit sceptical . Are they from relatives or friends ? I have never been to Rotherham , but my Tdx has , and I have to say the service was as good as these references say . The speed , cost and quality of the repair was unbelievable ! My reel is back , exactly as it came out of the box when new and ridiculously cheap . I spoke with John a couple of times , you wont meet a more genuine bloke . Very knowledgeable about reels , and when I suggested I pay more than the bill , he wasn't having it at all .All my reels will be going to Reel Value from now on !!! Thanks again John .
John was recommended to me by another reel repair company who were unable to repair my Okuma Magnetix Reel. As a first time customer the service from John has been beyond exceptional. John is a rare find, dedicated, passionate honest and highly professional. He fixed my reel in just a few days for a price that was incredibly reasonable. I asked him to put another £5 on the bill as I wanted to buy him a beer, but he refused !. The metal foot of my reel had snapped off and I was about to put it in the skip. John managed to re-rivet it back to the body and also completely cleaned up and serviced the reel for an incredibly reasonable price. I can highly recommend this company !!
This is the second time I've used the services of John and I was so impressed the first time I had no hesitation sending my 3 Shimano 8000 for a service. They were returned within 10 days running smooth as silk and looking like new. John offers a fantastic service at a very reasonable price. I would recommend John to all my fishing friends, knowing they would be as pleased with the service as I am. Keep up the good work John.

Have used John`s services on several occasions for my Loop fly reels.
Brilliant work ,effficient,fast and very cheap. Couldn`t ask for more.
Sent 2 Abu 7000, 1 Diawa SLOSH and a Fin Nor Marquessa 30 to John for service/repair and what a great job John made of them. This is the first time that I have used John and will definitely be using him for all my future reel servicing. He returned all 4 of my reels back to me within 2 weeks at a cost that is second to none. All that is left to said is thank you John, I look forward to using your services again.
WOW !!!.....I ordered 2 spools from john yesterday at 11.15am. They arrived this morning at 9.15 registered post. 22 hrs door to door. Absolutely brilliant service, and John is so easy to deal with. A real pleasure doing business with Reel Value. Thanks John.
John has just serviced 2 of my shimano reels. What a brilliant job he's done both reels look and work as if they are brand new and at a price you cant believe. Thanks John keep up the good work and I will spread the word.
John's done my shimano tekota's again (3rd time) keeping them going for another boat season.They get really hammered but he keeps them working when I thought they were dead and gone. Great work John.
Sent 3 fox reels to be service/ cleaned came back like new well impressed with the service . Very reasonable priced . Recommend John highly
Reel value you can say that again !! John did a top job of all my reels , I had two penn mags left in garage left them for dead !!!

WOW over the moon with the job john has done , old but look new , and run smoothly, he also did a service on by Abu ambassador, great job John , and thanks to my brother for passing on the contact, top guy , great repairs , reel value , thanks again John see you soon !

Sent my Abu baitcaster back and the service from John was perfect! Quickly dealt with and sent back securely. Excellent service all round
Have to say john offers great value for money he serviced my okuma andros 2 speed we had one issue after the service regarding the 2 speed shift button etc but john sorted this out with great efficiency
Top guy would highly recommend
John is a top guy he serviced my okuma andros 2 speed reel in super quick time would highly recommend him
We had one issue with 2 speed button but he sorted it out and got me up and running all in the space of 1 week
This is the second occasion I`ve used John services.....
Last week I contacted John regarding the possibility of obtaining some spare spools for my Okuma Trio 30. Not only did John advise of an alternative Okuma spool which has the same attributes, he also advised me it was cheaper, a lot cheaper... To say I was surprised by the honesty of the man, was an understatement. He could have easily sold me the "original Trio 30 spool" and made money, but in advising me, he lost money a lot of money...I ordered six which came in a few days....Perfect....
John will always be my first port of call...many thanks John....

The second time I have used John's service - Two rather battered bait-casters serviced and returned without issue. His communications and personal touch are what makes REEL VALUE special, coupled with his knowledge, experience and competitive pricing this makes REEL VALUE very different from other servicing outfits which is why I will be sending two more reels out shortly!

An absolutely delightful buying experience.....from a delighted customer.
Thanks John
came across reel value on line , after my attempt of striping my multiplier reel , sent it of to john in million bits and just got it back this morning all reassembled and feeling great , very fast turn around in getting reel back to me, johns knowledge not just in fixing reels but the history of the make is second to none ,this was my 1st time searching for somewhere to send reel of to be fixed and will not need to search ever again , as reel value is real value and have an other reel will be getting packed up to be sent of to john to be sorted out A+++++
Now this is the third time i have used Johns services one reel serviced as good as new the other reel not been used for 17 years is now like a brand new reel both reels where returned back to me within a week and like new while i was there i brought two new rods and a new reel for a fraction of the cost of the shop all i can say see john first before you think of buying a new rod or reel
regards Neil
An absolute top service from a wonderful bloke, so helpful and at such a reasonable price. Had my reel back in no time at all. And it feels lethal now ha ha. Will be using john again and would highly recommend him to anyone.
Just had my Abu Garcia Revo serviced and reassembled (after my failed attempt). Serviced and sent back on the same day Reel Value received it. Very friendly and fast service with a very competitive price!
Just had my Okuma Clarion reel returned fully repaired and functional. Posted Friday, Delivered Tuesday. What excellent Service. It is very rare to find such an honest and professional person these days, but John is such a person, who delivers what he promises at very reasonable prices. I have no hesitation is recommending John's services to anyone.
