    I just got my mitts on 3 reels. An old 30, 50 and a newer 50tw. The old 30 and 50 don't have a T or an S. They are all on ok shape and still function. Since no one in Hawaii is worth a shit when it comes to reel repair/service and forget about upgrades. Who do you guys use to service your gear? I'm not talking about a pimped out Cal's unit. Just general service and maybe get the old 30 and 50 beefed up a bit.

    Mainly I want to get some smaller stuff set up for my son. Mom said when he is 4 he gets to go out on the big boat with dad. We'll wait for our 1st father son LR trip till he's 5.

    Thanks guys.

    Alan,
    I'd really like to attack the reels myself and your tutorials are awesome. But between 2 kids, endless house projects and a boat business that needs way more time than I have... it's better to have a pro do it.

    Thanks again
    Jesse

    I'd offer but I'm already backed up to about 30 custom rods on the board and around 20 or so reels to service.

    Ken's or Michael Grossman, either one will do you right!
