When each reel is dry lightly lubricate easily accessible moving parts. This is especially important if the reel was used in saltwater or in dirty or muddy conditions. Do not use the reel until it is fully clean as dirt and sand can cause damage.
It′s not unusual to see their tackle banging around in the back of a pickup going down a dusty road or stored in a boat locker without being washed after a day fishing in saltwater. I often see reels spooled improperly drags set incorrectly and precious fishing days ruined because a reel wouldn′t cast right.
Some of my fishing buddies like me have invested a lot of money in the fishing reels they own. With few exceptions though these guys rarely treat their reels like the expensive finely tuned pieces of equipment they are.
Hold your reel properly while disassembling and assembling it. "We recommend anglers hold the reel in their left hand and work with their right. That way everything stays oriented. But the really important thing is to always hold it the same. That way the parts will go back together easier."
Oil bearings. "Clean bearings with lighter fluid. That'll remove all the dirt and grunge from them. After they're cleaned make sure they spin. That's very important because it'll tell you they're clean. Oil them with TG's Rocket Fuel — medium viscosity — one drop per bearing. Again use a toothpick."
