Mr Alantani, I have read your nice articles about lube and bearing. I have bought cals grease, after long searching to get it here, for the carbon fibre drag washer in the avets and I like it. It is very difficult for me to buy Yamaha Marine Grease. On ebay about $ 6,00 for 14 oz and international shipping for $ 35,00. It is too expensive for me.
Can I use the cals grease instead of the Yamaha Mariane grease for all the non-exposed metal surfaces? To protect the reel for (salt) water is going into the reel? Or will it be better to buy the Avet grease for protecting all the non-exposed metal surfaces. For the bearings I use rocket fuel oil. I would have tsi 301 but that is also too hard to get when not living in the USA.
The avet 5.3 sx has a tiny spool bearing on the right side. It is a'n open bearing. Now a stupid question: do you put the open side of the bearing first into the spool, or do you put the closed side of the bearing at first into the spool. I have two sx and the reels are different with the open bearing. Little difficult to explain in your language.
