in my experience when i take my reels to prepare them for the season i dont pay for the shipping of the grease i just take them to the shop and pick them up when they are ready
usually repair shops have grease in stock and they dont order small packages anyways
i get the point of greasing a reel requires it to be taken apart so ye if we really want to go in depth we could calculate that i even agree with the fact that it was a bit cheap to grease a venga but to go from a few silver to around 380 is just ridiculous if you ask me
i would agree that 100-150 is reasonable to some extent but around 380 is just no way near reasonable
and then there is the triumph reel i cant even imagine how much that costs now.. probably over 800silver..
i just hope this conversation reaches the ppl who changed the price and they reconsider and go with a price thats somewhere in the middle
