Shimano top service

#1

Unread post by bill yards » August 19th, 2015, 1:47 pm

Just getting some gear together for Ireland and I came across a small Shimano Biomaster 1000 reel. It looks spot on for a mini feeder/straight lead job as I also have a rod to suit, so I thought here goes. It wouldn't work so I rang the Service Dept at Shimano, Swansea. They suggested I boxed it up and send it special delivery. This I did yesterday afternoon. Just had a call from them saying they were sending it back and I'll get it tomorrow. New parts and a complete service, two day turnaround and for £20 all in, including carriage.

Top marks to Shimano :thumsup

Me too Joff, hope it fishes as well as last year, do you know how many are booked on? I know of around another 10 lads from round here who didn't go last year so numbers should be up :thumsup

40 odd pairs I have heard Fin but there is always all sorts of numbers banded about for this one. We should be in Blayney around 3pm on Thursday and in the Horesman about 3.01. See you there. Snakes are banned this year
