Proper lubrication is important for any reel. Lubricate the key parts such as bearings and main shaft with a light amount of quality oil. The worm gear, main gears and the pinion gear should be lubricated with a small amount of quality grease. Too much oil or grease can reduce the performance level of a reel, so a light coating is recommended. It is also recommended that you re-lubricate your reel on a monthly basis, particularly after heavy use.
