Stand back and wait for all sorts of complicated and labour intensive ways to upkeep your reel.
Perhaps I am lazy, but all my mulitpliers are only 'tinkered' with on an 'as needed basis' which is perhaps about once every 3 months (and I fish at least twice a week).
Until recently I simply used to apply a couple of drops of motor oil (I forget the viscocity of it now) to the bearings which are housed either end of the spool. However, I recently tried some 'red rocket fuel', and was pleasantly suprised that it seemed to justify the far higher cost.
As I said, I apply the 'if its not broke, don't fix it approach', but no doubt others will swear that such expensive and highly tuned precision engineered reels deserve more regular treatment.
cheers manx! just had a bit of grinding when i tightend my brake (prob sand) so gave it a swill! jus wanna keep it in good nick as its a lovely lil reel! and i 2 belive in that saying!!! esp with my car!!!!! aaarrr long long story!!!
Hi manx/fishy, i use a ct mag elite/slosh 30 and like manx advises the first thing i do after a trip is swill the reel under running water. i might go over the top but i always wrap my reels in a rag when carrying ... stops the scrapes/knocks ... only fishing once a week i do soak the bearings in fuel then re-oil every 3 months minimum. what do you advise for greasing inside and outer screws?? cheers
