Lube before or after use

Recommended Posts

It depends on how long it has been sitting on a shelf.

A couple of years ago I purchased 4 TDZ 's on a Cabela 's clearance, all of them were bone dry of lubricants, must have been stored on a shelf for a loooooong time.

More often than not the reel you purchase is quite fresh so there 's no need to lube anything prior to use.

I do every reel I purchase. Tear down, clean and re-lube, before I ever use it.

Sometimes I just can't wait to use it.  I usually do tear it down and at least remove most of the excess grease that all manufacturers seem to use.

When I buy a new reel the first thing I do is clean and relube the spool bearings. I usally wait a least a month or longer before I tear it down and relube it.

Without exception I take apart every new reel to inspect the insides, bearings, and also to make sure it is lubed and greased to my satisfaction.  Does not make sense to buy a new reel and get on the water and find out there is a problem or it is not properly lubed.

some you get are good to go...some you get are bone dry.
