So many people advertise super tuning.

The question is are they really super tuning or are the slapping some upgraded bearings and maybe some upgraded drag washers.

I use to do true super tuning witch takes about 3 hours per reel. It works on older reels but the newer ones it's hard to make them better than they are.

Do some research on SUPER TUNING
Baitcasting reels

Then ask yourself is this what I'm actually getting for the money.

Something else to think about is reel cleaning, are they tearing my reel down to the frame and really cleaning and inspecting ever part.
Something to think about.

I have seen a lot of people come and go since 2002.
I'm not looking to drum up business as it's more of a hobby and dont do as much as I use to.
I just dont like to see guys get taken advantage of.
There are good guys on this forum and business that do excellent work.
Just be careful.


Thank you,

So would my old Curado e7's be a good candidate for Super Tuning?

I have so many new reels and like you said they are really nice but have often wondered about fixing my old ones that "nothing" is wrong with. cheers
