reel servicing?

iv got a Mitchell 300 and a 301 the only difference was the spool (1 was a screw on the other is a push button) iv changed them both to the button so they match, but the 300 seems quite a bit stiffer that the 301, can I service them mysel, or are they a shop jobby? im no good with small fiddly things so if it involves anything like that I cant/wont do it, my eyes are to bad now!

these arnt my fishing reels, im putting together a retro carp set up, im looking for a nice pair of fiberglass rods to go with, but I want the reels spinning smooth first.

Good luck with reels but why fibre glass rods? What about split cane richard walker not cheap but craftsman made and as we all know a good tool is a joy to hold.And as Mr Crabtree used to say Tight lines!

iv got a nice cane float rod, and a old cane spinner rod, the spinner rod has never been on the bank, I used the float rod about 3 seasons ago and lost 3ins off the top section on the first strike, it just snapped, that's why im after glass rods, ya could knock them about a bit, im a ham handed fucker, anything that's to delicate I ruin.
