Default Cudos to Archuleta's Reel Works...

I have an old late 90s Lamson DCA-3 reel that the drag went bad on last year. In googling the DCA I had to sort thru who if anybody owned the warranty on these reels. It turned out Sage did, but they said they no longer have parts, but I could send the reel back with $50.00 and get a new Sage 1800 series reel. I looked them up and wasn't much impressed, I always liked that old Lamson even though it was very basic compared to the newer reels, so I searched around for a reel repair guy. I saw Bill Archuleta mentioned here, so I googled him, got a number and called him.

He said he could fix it and to send it in. I dropped it off at the post office last Wednesday and just got it back all fixed up today, one week to the day! It cost $38.00, $25.00 service and $13.00 for delivery including insurance.

I'm impressed and happy to have my old Lamson back.

John
