Rick, I have 2 saltiga 50's and one Fin -nor conventional. The LD 2 speed Saltiga seems to be lacking in the free spool department, it sometimes binds on the drop. The fin nor just needs a tune up and grooming. Any suggestions for the free spool issue? I would like to have you go through these reels, grease, tweak, clean. Is this something you can do? How does the shipping work? Obviously I pay to ship them to you, do you charge me to ship them back after the fact or do I send an all incluswive check with the reels?
You'll pay to ship them to me. I clean and service the reels and ship them back to you. If satisfied with the work, I then invoice you for the service and the return shipping....
Great reels...the Saltiga 2 speed is a workhorse, and holds up very well. Good drag system. My service includes cleaning and greasing the drags as well as removing all bearings, cleaning and greasing them. Those reels are $35 each.
Sometimes the lever drag system binds and wont fully retract from the drag surface. Usually fixed with the cleaning.
The Fin Nor would be $25.
If interested my shipping address is:

Postalita....thanks for bearing with me as we made the tutorials and did the upgrades.
Not everything was in house at the time, and things stretched out a bit longer than I had wanted.
But...everything has shipped....I hope you find your reels and new Momoi line all to your liking!
Rick - just got back from my trip. The reels were here and they look awesome! The upgraded handles really make them look nice and I'm sure they'll perform great! Thank you for the great customer experience - you kept me informed at all times and answered my questions promptly and professionally. I appreciate going above and beyond to get them spooled, which saves me a trip to the local tackle shop.

I've got a couple of 2nd Gen Penn 750 SS Reels I've had for quite some time now. I usually have done the cleaning and maintainance since they are pretty simple mechanically and quite the workhorses. However based on what I See here I will definately send some of my other reels up as they need maintainance in the future. However, To your knowledge, is there an aftermarket reel handle or Knob that would upgrade these Penns. Id use em a WHOLE lot more if they weren't such a nightmare to crank on compared to some of the newly designed med / high quality spinners Im growing accustomed to.....AND do you sell any of those upgraded handles that would fit?
