Steve upgraded the drag & checked over my Shimano Trinidad 30a reel. Went on a jigging trip on the Clansman with Dove charters operating out of Kawhia. Caught Kingi's all day best being 20kg. The reel had great stopping power & was very smooth. The set up was shared with 4 guys & didn't stop all day. Didn't miss a beat very happy costomer. Steve is a pleasure to deal with quick service & a top job. Cheers Steve keep it up.

I recently dropped two reels off to Steve for a service. It was a real panic as we were off out in a couple of days and my reel had jammed. Steve was awesome making time to fully service the reels and they have come back just like new. He went to great lengths to pass on his tips and advice on maintaining them also. I have had reels serviced at lots of different places over many many years but will only be going to one place now. A top bloke and a great knowledge.

My wife dropped my Tica Sculptor SL100 over the side of our boat. Now I'm a lucky guy that my wife loves fishing... but I admit to getting a tad excited about one of my favorite reels going for a swim.. No worries I found Capt Steve on Trademe and he has just stripped down and cleaned my Tica for $36!!! I'm a happy man.. and have already recommended Capt Steve to another keen fisherman.

Seriously good reel servicing, gave me honest advice about some of my older reels and pimped a couple of reels with Carbon Tex drags, which are super smooth even with a high drag pressure. Highly recommended.

I am delighted and it is indeed an honour that I give this reference for Swordfish Marine I have had several dealings over the years and each time has been an absolute pleasure with prompt, no-nonsense and exceptional service, straight up recommendations for service, repairs, upgrades and onwards to full blown race spec blue printing for high end sportfishing tackle.

After having a chat to Steve I gave him my precious certait 2500 custum to service. I fish my gear very hard and need to have confidence that I give myself the best chance possible to land that trophy fish. I have seen the bin where your normal tackle shop would chuck your reels in ... Not so with Steve. My reel was looked after and serviced to a standard that you can't tell the reel from new. I trust Steve with all my furter servicing, from my Tiagra to my baitcaster....

I've had Steve service reels ,for me now for probably 6 years . He gives impartial advise and is totally trustworthy and very knoledgable and has helped me upgrade over the years to the top quality equipment I have now . I have reccomended him to all my fishing friends most of whom buy equipment off him and have their reels serviced by him.
