Fantastic little reels, got one myself and have used it for about 18months without any problems, there is a little oil hole on the main body of the reel and I drop a bit of oil in there every now and then (do wash my reel under fresh water after every use though and dry it in the airing cupboard).

I think a few months ago MrFJ reported a slight fault on the Technium where the braid/line can get caught on the bail arm (where the bail arm goes into the roller body), from memory I think he said that braid can slowly wear a groove in the roller body and this sometimes traps the line?

Not happened to mine and chuffed to bit with it.
