Remove or secure your fishing line before you remove the spool. "Either strip all the line off the spool or secure it with masking tape before you remove the spool from the reel. If you don't the line will get caught between the spool and the frame and make removal very difficult."
Assemble the proper tools before you begin. "You'll need two small screwdrivers — a slot head and a Phillips — along with a pair of tweezers and an old toothbrush. If you have the wrench and parts list that came with your reel keep them handy too."
Never put metal against metal. "Never put metal to metal when working on your reel. All reel parts are designed metal to fiber. Remember that."
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.
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.
