Tame your favorite old "knuckle buster" with modern one-way drag control!
A retrofit is now available to add modern one-way drag functionality to your favorite PEETZ Classic wood reels! There is nothing like the feel of fishing with a PEETZ Classic wood reel and now you can have the best of both worlds - modern guts and functionality in a comfortable (and totally cool) wood form!
Send your PEETZ reels to our shop and for a modest parts and labor charge we'll professionally install an elegant retrofit kit that requires some minor modifications (a larger center hole is required for the mechanism. The other benefit of this retrofit is that it includes an updated drag control that is stronger and more sensitive to your adjustment.
Please note that shipping costs are extra. You are responsible for the delivery of your reel(s) to our shop. A return shipping amount will be quoted by us and applied when you place your order.
Optional Add Ons
For a small additional fee, we can re-spool with fresh line so you are ready to go or even custom engrave the wood face of your reel should you wish to personalize it.
