Degrease Stiff Reels. If you purchased a new fishing reel and found it a little stiff when casting take it apart and see if you need to remove some of the grease on the gears. Old reels work better too if you clean out gummed-up grease and replace it with a fresh coating of light lubricant. A solvent like Ardent Reel Kleen or isopropyl rubbing alcohol works great to loosen up all grease. A Q-Tip or soft cloth can be used for application.
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.
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."
