Lubricating your reel can make a big difference to its performance and can help to prevent corrosion build up. Good places to apply oil or spray are the shaft, maintenance hole and line roller. Make sure you use reel oil, as WD-40 can harm your reels.
When replacing a rod tip, it’s as easy as; selecting the right size tip, using hot glue, place your tip on and allow it to set.
- After fishing in the saltwater, your rod and reel could be covered in salt residue. Simply wash your rod/reel down with freshwater and wipe away any visible salt. When bait fishing it’s a good idea to use soapy water on your fore grip to clean off any dry bait.
- Apply reel oil or a silicone spray to the line roller bearing after most uses. This will prevent corrosion and a noisy reel.
