Recommended: yesPros: Great work, great price, quick turnaroundI received a 45-year-old rod and reel combo from my wife's grandfather. The reel turned, but not well, and the drag was completely frozen. The rod was dirty, a couple of guides were loose and misaligned.
John stripped the reel, cleaned and lubed it. He removed the guides, cleaned them, cleaned the rod, and rewound the guides. It looks great - check out the photos in my album
In my case, I dropped them off on Thursday, and he was done on Monday. (It might take longer once the weather warms up and he decides to spend more time fishing himself, of course.)
This is my first time dealing with services like these, but I consider his rate to have been outstanding. I don't do much impulse buying, but his quote was low enough that I sure didn't hesitate for long.
I'd encourage you to give him a call if you're in the area.
