Reel Squeal/Rattle - Oiled Bearings No Help

Recommended Posts

Hey y'all,


I got a Lew's Custom Black Speed Spool last season and only used it a couple times. It had started to squeal then and I just put it away to deal with when prepping for this season. I oiled the bearings and I'm still getting the sound - do I oil or gease the brake drum? Just bad bearings?


Other troubleshooting ideas?

I'm glad asked, I've heard others say to use grease on the brakes, but I think you guys were right - oil did the trick it seems, I'll be able to really cast later instead of in the back yeard.


Thanks y'all
