reel maintenance

Recommended Posts

Any good websites or advice for a newbie wanting to tear his reels down to clean and lube them?  I have looked at owners manuals and the number of parts is quite intimidating (not sure I want to tear them down all the way).  Should I just stick to the bear minimum maintenance  or what?

Yes!  Print this out.  It is for Shimanos, but applies to most baitcasters.  Haven't tried the one for spinning rigs, but included that link as well.

I made a "kit" with reel oil, cotton swaps, old cloth, silicon spray, and some rubbing alcohol.
