Default Avet or Rick's reel service?

I need to send 4 of my reels in for service. Two clickers on my trxw50s are wore out (faulty design if you ask me) What's my best bet to get these fixed up in a timely manner?

The Avet T-Rex as we call them is a robust reel that I would not send to just anyone...

But if you have to make a decision like that, it should either be Avet or me!

The plunger on the clicker goes for about $8 and that part and a new spring will usually bring the clickers back around.

My turnaround is about two weeks right now. And your reels when here will get the same attention as if I have my reels apart on the bench. Many folks here can attest to my attention to detail.

And I do know Avets fairly well...

Outside of Avet it would only be Rick to work on mine. Excellent work

Avet is slow as Christmas and hard to talk to anyone, send it to Rick!

There are too many atta-boys for Ricks even for me to link to so here's a latest one.

Will be sending some LX's, HXW's, 50EXW's to Rick, for their off season spa day! Reels were super smooth on the cod, haddock and some Bluefin from Rick's service last year.


Last 2 years sent my Shimano spinning reels down and I swear they were smoother than new.

No problem...

We are very near the intersection of County Line Rd and Hwy 41 (Broad Street)

Just give me a heads up as I leave for lunch. If you make it here for lunch, we have to go to the Masaryktown Cafe. They have the best Cuban food north of Tampa...

Ironically, just filled out Rick's online form and am sending him a couple of reels. Have used Rick multiple times including a number of Avets and he's the BEST.

Bringing this thread back around. It's approaching that time of the year again for winterizing and will be a great time to consider a service on your gear.

If you have some Avets, along with other trolling reels, you will always find some good comments from folks who have sent their gear to me!
