Hello from Edmonds, WA! 

Was mostly a freshwater bass guy for years and years, sending my reels off for work once a year with no problems.  Recently started kayak fishing in the salt and my gear is taking a beating!  Getting paid service for my reels now will likely cost too much money and take too much time so decided to start down the path of learning how to service my own. 

Mostly fishing Daiwa but recently had a great deal on a Abu Toro S61 that I couldn't pass up and thought that there must be something I can do before fishing this new reel to "prep" it for saltwater abuse.  Was directed here on a question about preventative maintenance on a new reel via NWKayakAnglers.com - this looks to be one of the premier reel discussion sites!

I'll be doing some deep reading for a bit but newb questions sure to be coming soon on the topic of "preventative maintenance" (that seems to be the term tossed around here for this?).  If anyone has any articles or posts that spell it out and holds your hand would love to see those...

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

bpm2000,
Welcome.... enjoy your stay, lots of good info to be had here....
get some good graese, save your old toothbrushes, and dive in.  Many will help if you get in a jam.
I actually prefer the cheap little "flux" brushes for soldering copper pipe,... cut them down 1/2 way, and grease away Grin
