About Majestic Reels



Hello and welcome!  I am Jeff Yates, the creator of Majestic Reels.  I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and always had a strong passion for fishing since I was a kid.  I began working for a machine shop in 1999 where my passion for machining took root.  I always wanted to find a way to combine my passion for fishing and machining into something that I could both enjoy making and using, and to also have a great product for others to enjoy as well.  


About 3 years before I officially started Majestic Reels, a friend came into the shop asking if I could fix the bearings on a centerpin fishing reel he had.  After looking at his centerpin, it clicked on how I could finally combine my two passions together by making centerpin fishing reels.  From that, Majestic Reels was born.  


What started out as a concept idea back in 2013, grew into what you see today.  Countless hours of researching, designing, and manufacturing went into producing the first centerpin prototype for Majestic Reels, which was brought out for demo early 2017. After the centerpin demo tested well, I decided to go with what I had and began making The Prophecy.  

I built Majestic Reels on the foundation of passion, superior craftsmanship, team work, and dedication to customer service.  I am grateful for the support I have received from my family, friends, and the fishing community along this journey.


Please contact me at if you have any questions or would like more information.  I am always happy to take the time to talk with people regarding fishing and helping them decide on their perfect reel!

Thank you for your interest in Majestic Reels!!  

Jeff and Melissa Yates
