Reel Repair

Send us your reel for a tune-up or repair

Orvis reels are guaranteed for life against defects in materials and workmanship. Reel repairs are completed on an individual basis for a $30.00 handling fee plus the cost of any parts required, not to exceed $50.00 without prior approval. Any breakage or malfunction deemed by our repair specialists to have been as a result of defect will be fixed free of charge.


Send us your reels and extra spools, and we’ll clean them or add new line and backing, all to your specifications. From the time you send us your reel, plan on 8-10 weeks depending on the season. It’s an easy way to make sure your equipment is ready for the season ahead.


Send us any reel and/or spool and we'll:



  • check knots, splices, line, and backing
  • clean old line
  • check, clean, and lubricate any Orvis reel
  • load new lines and/or backing as directed by you for an additional charge


How the program works:

Basic cleaning and refurbishing services cost $30.00. If all you need is basic cleaning and refurbishing, enclose a check for $30.00 and we will take care of shipping it back to you.


If you would like us to load new line and backing on your reel, please indicate so in the notes of the form below.
