To keep reels in prime fighting condition periodic disassembly and cleaning is necessary at least every two years preferably annually. Because of the intricate mechanics this chore is best left to professional technicians at reputable tackle shops or service centers. The reels will be completely disassembled down to the last screw and thoroughly cleaned with ultrasonic dunking the preferred method. For the quickest turnaround have this done in the winter off-season.
After cleaning wipe the reel down with a rag soaked with a protective coating like Aluma Guard Reel magic or WD-40. A light coating of liquid furniture polish will also work. Be careful to avoid contact with the line or handle grips.
Fill Your Reel Just Right. When using a baitcasting reel filling the spool to 90 percent capacity is recommended. This optimizes casting performance. Too much line is likely to increase the chance of backlash while not enough limits casting distance. For spinning reels a good rule of thumb is to fill the spool until there′s at least 1/8 inch of room from the line to the edge of the spool lip. That will let you use the most line capacity without causing line to spring off the spool and form tangles. The 1/8-inch rule applies to spincast reels too but you′ll have to remove the reel′s front cover so you can check the amount of line on the spool.
