ok, i'd get some cal's drag grease on the drag washers and generally clean up the reel inside.  it might be a good time to get rid of as much as the lithium stuff as you can and leave a light coat of yamaha grease inside afterall.   Undecided

Copy that Alan. Iím going to redo all of them. Heck. Springer fishing doesnít start for a few more weeks anyway so my dance card is open the next couple weekends.  Grin
Side note: I notice you donít grease your spool bearings, only corrosion x right? Will that last a season or do you need to re oil often?

Thanks again for the advise.

If you don't have Cal's grease, stop on by at SSS and we'll grease it up for you there.  Shouldn't take but a couple of minutes.

For spool bearings, we now use TSI301 or TSI321.  It bonds to the metal and it's such a great lubricant and rust inhibitor.  Also, if you don't have any of this, we can lube it for you at SSS.

TSI is hard to get here in "the sticks", can you bring me 2 bollles of the non aresol when you come up?  If you have to have it shipped I can do it.  Yamaha grease also has to be shipped but I have plenty.

White lithium grease reminds me of Elmer's Glue.   Roll Eyes

Okay guys, now you got me questioning my chores today. If I donít have TS301 will corrosion x work? If it does will it last a season or should I wait any get the other product? Soon my weekends will be full of fishing again and I wonít get to fiddle with my reels until next winter.

I use Corrosion X because TSI is hard to get in KF, as Alan said above it is good stuff.
