Heath’s Tips for Reel Maintenance
Always carry our a visual check prior to Carrying out Maintenance on your reel.
Before Cleaning always tighten up drags
Only ever use a a light spray of water to clean your reels after use (soapy water can also be used)
Oil Bearings after each use
* spinning reals , take particular care of line roller bearing
* Overheads take particular care of spool bearing
Regular serving!!!! .. if the reel is to be used 3 to 4 times a month , then service every 6 months. However if reel is only used once a month then once a year servicing is recommended.
***IF YOUR UNSURE DO NOT DISMANTLE YOUR REEL!!!!!***
