The Tackle Trap offers everything from a simple clean and lubricate, to full super tuning, custom work, and aftermarket parts installation. Our primary goal is to keep your reels operating at peak performance.  We have the knowledge, parts, facilities, and the skill to accomplish this goal.

Our thorough cleaning process consists of a complete breakdown all the way to the frame, an inspection for any damaged or worn parts, a hand scrub of the frame, side plates, and gears before a trip through an ultra sonic cleaner. Once thoroughly clean, we reassemble your reels with only the finest lubricants. The bearings are flushed in acetone to ensure cleanliness and complete debris removal, and the drag washers are scrubbed to provide you with a smooth, strong drag.

We’re often asked about “Super Tuning.”  Super tuning a reel is essentially refining the mechanics of the reel. There are 3 key aspects in which a reel will benefit from a proper super tuning process. 

1: Casting - a thorough flush of the spool bearings and proper lubrication with only the highest grade bearing oils, along with a mirror polish of the spool tips and brake ring where applicable, will aid in smooth and efficient casting with exceptional control. 

2: Drag - a thorough flush of the drag washers removes any unwanted contaminants. Once clean, the drag stack is reassembled and "run in" to ensure smooth operation, and efficient stopping power. 

3: Clutch/Retrieve - a reel that is rough, vibrates, or catches on the retrieve doesn’t enhance any fishing experience.  A polish of the clutch mechanism, proper cleaning of support bearings, and replacing bushings with bearings where applicable are critical components to make the reel as smooth as possible.  We all like our reels smooth and a super tune will make it happen!
