I was reading stuff online about super tuning your reels. I was wondering if anybody has had it done and how much did it cost you?

I did a mild tune to my reels myself and one other members reels here. I highly recommend replacing the bearing as well to get full proformance out of it. So far no complaints

Just give it to miller, my reels are better than brand new after he tuned them...it's a cheap price for keeping your equipment at its peak performance!

Here you go n2deep ...

Clean and Tune basic Service $25

The clean and tune basic service includes a full cleaning of your reel along with some super tuning. Super tuning is the process of polishing friction points to reduce friction and make a reel crank and cast smoother and further than stock reels are capable of. With the basic service level, your reel will be completly cleaned then recieve a light polishing of most friction points. The reels will then be lubricated with TG's Rocket Fuel oils.


Clean and Pro Tune Premium Service $29

The clean and pro tune premium service is the highest level of reel cleaning and tuning we offer. This service is for experienced casters who are looking for a truly super free spool. With this service, your reel will get all of the treatments of the basic clean and tune but there is increased emphasis on the spool shaft and spool bearings. The friction points of the spool shaft will be micro sanded and polished with even finer grits than what is used in the basic clean andtune service. The pro tune premium service also includes the use of advanced, longer lasting lubricants such as Tungsten Disulfide on the friction points and TSI 301 in the spool bearings. After the bearings have been completely cleaned they will be soaked in a treatment designed for stainless steal bearings. This bearing soak bonds to the metal on a molecular level. Stainless steel is actually very porous. This treatment will fill most of the microscopic pores resulting in a smoother surface that will spin with less friction. The bearings will then be lubed with long lasting TSI 301 which is much thinner than traditioal oils. The Pro Tune Premium service is best suited for any high quality reel when you want the best performance you can get without spending a lot of money on costly upgrades.

A little late but...

Bearings make a BIG difference. Biggest as far as I have noticed.

I found a guy who has the best price I have found on Boca Ceramic Orange Seals.

Easy to deal with and price includes shipping.

Look him up, Trey Harpel @ TH Reel Tuning and Cleaning.

You'd have to replace the bearings yourself. I have the spool bearing pliers for loan if you need. Only takes 2 minutes.
