    DC462DB0-4E04-452A-A669-F293CE9D5F6F.jpeg Typically my reels are serviced annually in the confines of my garage over the California winter. This year, I sent in a well wahoo’d Tranx 500HG and a Ulua 93H abused Trinidad 30A and in about 30 days, my reels come back with new bearings, pinion and main gears, washers and other parts with total charges of about $55 for both reels. There is no reason to go anywhere else. Thank you Shimano.

    New pinion and main gears? What was wrong with the old ones?

    Probably just worn from use.

    I’ve sent in a Curado 300ej and had them replace the bearings, gears, drags, gear sleeve all for the standard $25 service charge. Can’t beat that!
