rework or new?
Just got a couple of Penn 750ss spinning reels given to me. Looking for advice on having them serviced to bring them up to good condition or just using the money to buy new spinning reels. Planning on using them for surf fishing mostly for Pompano. If buying new is a better way to go, what would the experienced pomp fishermen recommend. Any advice would be appreciated. If they are worth having worked on what type of cost would I be looking at? Thanks.

Get in touch with Pompano Joe or Ocean Master. Either one will go through them and make them better than new. 750's are a little big for pomp fishing if you ask me.

Those are good reels if they are in reasonably good condition! Afraid to work on reels yourself- take the advice above. They'll hook you up!
As far as surf fishing, they'll work out great for you. A little large for pompano- but they'll do, great for big reds and black drum too.
This is not a charter service or professional fishing group, we're just trying to have some fun!

750s are really really easy to work on yourself. Cod them one at a time and use the others for a template to put back together. YouTube can help with general pointers but were talking less than10 moving parts in the whole reel. I did this with a bunch of 650's a couple years ago.
Ps if your tossing them in the trash let me know and I'll bring you my trashcan!
