Thread: Reel grease

  1. #1

    Default Reel grease

    Anyone tried this

    http://www.hobbylubricants.com/store...el_Grease.html

    It's about 90% cheaper than the usual brands

    Nope, apart from the pins I don't bother with internal lubricant to reels.

    The advert shows it can be ordered in 85g tube (£5.95) or a 500g tub(£13.40) - doesn't seem to be particularly cheap compared with MoS2 lubes.

    My Bewick arrived this morning and I was wondering if the "pin" needed any sort of lubricant on it, what and where do you use it Jerry.

    Never heard of reel grease, never felt the need to grease a reel either.
    In fact years ago the Mitchel match reels (that I still have) all the grease was washed out with WD40 so the handle could be batted round for quick retrieve when stick fishing.
    Another memory that was long forgotten, thanks for the reminder. They are all adding up.
    OK I'm only remembering angling related stuff but all memories are welcome.

    Clean the whole reel thoroughly first. Make sure the pin itself, and the female part of the spool, are as clean as possible. A cotton bud into the female bit isn't a bad idea, just be careful not to leave any bits of the head behind. Retracting the sprung spool retainer while you use the cotton bud is a good plan.

    A couple of drops of a really light oil on the pin itself should be adequate. If the oil runs down the pin and reaches the backplate, you've used too much. I tend to use Singer sewing machine oil.
