Title: Plfueger Arbor Reel 7440X
Post by: Gobi King on October 03, 2018, 10:05:31 AM
I bought this for grandma due the large arbor and 4.3:1 ratio.
Last weekend while salmon fishing I dunked it a few times in the river so I opened it up to clean the drag and replace the washer with CF and some cals and relube the entire reel.

1. CF Drag - to my surprise the reel already had a cf drag in it, very nice, I cleaned it and reapplied some cals
2. the main gear was kinda bare so I put in some penn blue all around and added some TSI to the bearings and buttoned it up. it feels better.
