Reel Services Australia



Attention: All Customers


The workshop is currently running as normal, but…


NO new work will be taken from the 1st of November to the 1st of January due to my upcoming surgery.

Please Note: If reels are sent in during this time I will not be able to collect them from the Post Office and they may very well be returned to you.

Also, the workshop will be closed for the middle 2 weeks in February 2022 as I desperately require time off that involves fishing and not recovering from injuries or surgery.


Current reel turn around times are approximately 2 weeks due to the high volumes currently in the workshop.


I have lifted the ‘hold’ I placed on all new custom rod builds, re-builds and restoration works. I can undertake this work BUT I cant give any guarantees of completion times as I will only be working on rods roughly 1 day a week due to the high volume of reels currently in the workshop.


Also, there has been some difficulty getting rod components & reel parts due to the COVID situation overseas causing issues with manufacturing.

Work on small rod repairs such as guides and tip replacements is quick and easy and these small jobs are typically completed on a Sunday, then are ready for collection Mon/Tues onwards.


If you are local and wish to drop off your reels and rods to the workshop please note that this is by APPOINTMENT ONLY.


Thanks everyone.

Great idea stocking the freezer before the op! Good luck with the op as well.

G’day Laith I read your posts with great interest. It looks like their are a lot of badly designed reels available. What would be your top 5 or 10 to buy if a person doesn’t have your experience and knowledge ? TIA Cheers Marty.
