cleaning and supertuning reels

Recommended Posts

I looked in the "fishing articles" above and searched the forum but could not find anything with hints on cleaning and/or supertuning reels. I would appreciate a link or 2 related to this please.

thanks

TimJ,

Feel free to PM with any specific questions. What make reels do you have?

i think  true "supertuning" is a thing of the past. a proper clean/lube will change how 90% of all baitcasters work........and for the better.

its not so much supertuning but maybe updating is the right word. I have 4-4600CBs that I want to replace bearings, maybe add bearings instead of bushings (if possible) and replace the drag washers. I have had someone cleaning my stuff but I'm going to learn to do it myself.

my other reels are bps j.morris, older shimano and bps qualifiers.

hmong-that was the first site I checked out on google...lol.

delaware-thanks. I'll be in touch.

This is what you need on how to supertune a reel.

My caution is that you be very careful in using any sand paper on a surface, internal or external. You can change the tolerances from the manufacturer very easily. Some super tuners use a jewelers rouge to buff a high gloss surface on parts with a Dremel.

Each reel can have a few unique areas that need or can use attention.

In all honesty, there are many reels that just don't need it. Others see a nice improvement.
