Tackle Depot has a guy that took great care of an Abu Garcia 6500 that stopped working for me.

I've been pleased with Southwest parts in Dallas for over 30 years.
Some people go to church and think about fishing. Some go fishing and think about God.

I took a few reels to Southwestern in Dallas (35 miles away) several years ago, for cleaning/luricating and any possible repairs right after I had used them and 2&1/2 months before I was going to be using them again in salt water. I was told it would be 2-3 weeks for them to get them done. I hadn't heard back from them 2 weeks before I was to go so I called them and they said they'd be ready in a week. So one week before I'm to go I call them again and am now told they don't work on those reels because they can't get parts. For Okumas? Can't even clean them? Mother --ck. I drive the 35 miles each way and got the reels back from them and went fishing with them as they had been and after a couple of days 2 of them froze up and I went and bought new one's while on the coast. I now send all my reels to Kevin Smith at Shamrock Rod and Reels in Burleson, TX. His web site is: His email is: and his phone # is: 817-219-3049. He is quick, reliable, reasonable, and even pays for the return postage. I'll never go back to Southwestern due to my experience there.
