"PENN Fishing Tackle Mfg. Co. warrants its Products to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one year from the date of purchase. This warranty does not cover damage or malfunctions caused by accident, abuse, or normal expected wear. If your PENN Product has a defect within the terms of the warranty you should return it to us, or to your local warranty center, please select the Repair Department link in the navigation for instructions. All shipping and insurance costs and transportation arrangements will be borne by you and are your responsibility. We will repair or replace the Product, at our option, without further cost to you, (including free return transportation and insurance). If, however, the repair is not covered by the provisions of this warranty, your PENN Product will be repaired and returned to you at a reasonable charge for labor, parts and return transportation and insurance."

What we need from you for warranty reels:

  • Your WARRANTY Reel(s) (Please make sure you properly package and insure your reel. We recommend you send your reels to us via UPS so that the shipment can be tracked and we can verify receipt of your goods.)
  • Please contact us and give us the tracking info for the reel when you send it to us, thank you. (Warranty reel repairs ONLY)
  • Completed Repair Form (See link below to start creating one in our online catalog). (Warranty reel repairs ONLY)
  • Include purchase receipt for the reel with the shipment or we will be unable to process it for warranty service. (Warranty reel repairs ONLY)
Again, This warranty does not cover damage or malfunctions caused by accident, abuse, or normal expected wear. For warranty service to apply, it must be a new reel with it's purchase receipt in order to be approved. Penn's warranty's are limited.

Penn Reel Repair (Covid Restrictions Apply)

Please contact us CUSTOMERSERVICE@MYSTICPARTS.COM for instructions prior to sending in you Penn reel for regular repair/service (DO NOT CALL FOR APPROVAL, use the contact system)
This is required so that we can review the problem(s) with the reel(s) and determine repairs can be made. Some older parts may not be available, and we would like to save customers the expense of postage/insurance or driving here to drop off a reel that is not fixable.

We do offer a very limited (requires pre-authorization by us) Reel Repair / Servicing.

Mail-ins for repair are PENN Warranty Service only (See above). We are no longer accepting regular repairs for Penn reels by mail in, these repairs are now drop off only.

DROP-OFF/PICK-UP: If you are within the Tri-State area and you would like to drop off and pick up your reels including models that are not made by Penn, you may still do so.
We have not been accepting these reels other than Penn as mail-ins since fall of 2016.
Anyone who called ahead or contacted us via the contact form for the required prior authorization would have been informed that regular reel repair is a drop off/pick up scenario only.
CURBSIDE ONLY! No one is allowed entry to the store due to Covid19. If you have contacted CUSTOMERSERVICE@MYSTICPARTS.COM and gotten approval to drop off, please call us from the parking lot to say that you are there and we will arrange to bring in your reel(s). We do not want reels left outside unattended.
PICK-UP: The same procedures apply when your reels are completed and you are picking up. Call ahead to 1-609-488-4637 to make arrangements.
