Serviced by anglers for anglers with attention to detail

At Coast Tackle we strive to return your reels to you in as good or better than new condition. All reels are broken down to the frame and each part inspected for wear and replaced if needed.  They are then cleaned in a biodegrable,safe solution at 150 degrees in an Ultrasonic Cleaner to remove even the most minute debris, dirt and old grease.  The reels are then correctly lubed, tuned and tested using only the finest lubricants such as Reel X, Bocca Reel Power, Super Lube and Cal's drag grease. They are then spin tested and all operation checked before we return them to you. All repairs are warranted by Coast Tackle for 90 Days including replaced parts and labor.

We service most major brands of Reels. We are a Shimano Service Plus dealer and service the following brands of Reels: Shimano, Okuma, Lew's, Diawa, Van-Stahl, Abu Garcia, Quantum, later editions of Pflueger and Penn Reels.
