|SPINNING REEL MAINTENANCE||Spincast Reels | Baitcast Reels|
After a day's fishing, the spool should be removed and gently rinsed with fresh water, along with the rest of the reel. Then, dry with a soft cloth and use a few drops of light oil to lubricate the line roller, bail hinge springs, crank handle knobs and shaft, beneath the anti-reverse selector switch, and where the center shaft exits the top of the reel.
• Your reel has been designed to provide years of dependable performance when properly maintained and lubricated.
• Be sure to exercise care when applying oil and grease and use only small amounts of each when lubricating, as excess is unnecessary and can hinder performance of reel.
• The more frequent or severe the use, the more often and thoroughly a reel should be serviced. Your reel should be cleaned and re-lubed after each trip of saltwater fishing or if dropped in dirt or sand.
• Annually the reel should be professionally cleaned and lubricated. Lubrication points are as follows (some part descriptions will vary from reel to reel):
NOTE: Grease and Oil used should be a good quality, light grade product designed for fishing reels.
