    Pro Gear's outstanding service

    Had a little hard to disengaged and rough free spool on a V22 and sent it to progear Monday afternoon and got it today all fixed and very smooth. Even got a reel cover with it. Don't know what was the fix or replaced but it felt so much smoother than I expected it would be. Thanks Pro Gear!

    House heater refused to ignite. Sensor is clean and the igniter glow but don't ignite. Before I call a tech, checking here if maybe a simple igniter replacement may solve. I removed the igniter and seems ashy. Thanks for any input.
