Take your reel apart properly. "When you take your reel apart lay out the parts on a mat of some sort. Put a strip of masking tape under the line of parts and number each part as you remove it from the reel. That way you'll be able to put everything back together without having parts leftover."
After cleaning components are inspected before reassembly. If a part won′t endure a complete season it needs to be replaced. Items subject to normal wear and tear like plastic drag knobs are checked for stress cracks. Drag washers typically last a couple of years depending on use; a shiny or worn one needs to be replaced immediately. Technicians also know whether to lube the drag washers. Certain drag material requires lubricants to work properly while others are designed to stay dry and grease-free. Keep your spinners spinning smoothly and they won′t let you down when that drag starts screaming.
After all that put your reel back together; check to make sure everything is working the way it should back the drag off and apply a little Reel Magic to the exterior to protect the finish and line. You'll be good to go. Spinning reels can be maintained much the same as casting reels. Just remember the basics — stay organized clean properly grease gears and oil bearings.
