Grease gears. "Apply grease to the bottom of the teeth not the top. Applying grease to the tops of the teeth will cause the gears to throw the grease everywhere. You want it in the bottom. Also don't slop the grease all over the place; a light coating is all you need. We apply it with a toothpick or a small brush."
Egg Carton Parts Holder. If you′re the handyman type who can dismantle your own reel for maintenance here′s a tip you can use. Save an empty egg carton or three and number each compartment. Then when as you′re taking your reel apart place each part in a separate compartment of the egg carton(s) as you go along putting part 1 in compartment 1 part 2 in compartment 2 and so on. When reassembling the reel you can pick up the parts in reverse order and get everything back together right. Of course it′s also a good idea to save and file the schematics that come with the reels you buy and use them when you′re doing reel maintenance. That′s the best way to know what goes where.
There are three types of drag systems : 1. Spring and pawl or “click and pawl” systems feature a spring that pushes the prawl into a gear on the reel spool to produce a drag. Spring and pawl is best for light fishing when targeting panfish 2. Disc drag pushes a large-diameter pad against the reel spool′s braking surface. Pressure is applied directly to increase overall control and efficiency. Cork or synthetic materials like Teflon are used in disc drag systems. Cork provides a smoother more consistent pressure and can be easily adjusted. These systems are great for fighting large strong fish 3. Caliper drag systems fall between disc and spring and pawl. A caliper pad pushes against the braking surface of the spool. This friction slows the way the reel spool spins.
