Think twice before getting your gear worked on down here!
Just got 4 of my reels back from a small shop down here. One had a sticky liveliner drag and i figured the others could use a nice pro cleanup job.
Now 2 of the reels are broken, and the guy admits that he really has no idea and I should have brought them to Boogies. Now I am probably going to have to bring them back to the states, and I bet the warranty is now voided. Pretty damn expensive tuneup!
Keep in mind before you let anyone touch your shit down here that if anything goes wrong you are SOL and going to have to deal without it. Just my .02.Forrest Lyman

What kind of reels are they?
You seen the reel repair tutorials w/ pics?
You know how to use a screwdriver and a wrench?
They are easy to service yourself.
Just go get some Coronas and Tequila, a few limes, done deal!Join The Marlin Club of San Diego Today. Preserve Our Angling History and Future. Since 1931.

Hey Forrest, I have a house in La Mision. I am down every week or two. I live very close to "The Longfin". A excellent tackle shop that repairs and services gear, rod repairs, ect. I can do a delivery there for you and have them back fairly quick. PM me, I'll be in La Mision Saturday, and my wife is in Ensenada to visit family evey weekend we are down.Killing Fish-One Taco At A Time

Ok, I stand corrected. This guy had nothing to do with my clicker breaking on my troller. I just talked with another shop who opened it up and it was the first time it had ever been opened. So that asshole never even did the work, just sprayed em down with wd40.Forrest Lyman
