To bad Cal's is so expensive. Accurate uses it everywhere in their reels. This's what I'd do if it weren't about $8+/oz.

Really? Good to know 'cause I'm doing that on a couple of my best reels, but wasn't sure it was a good idea.

If anyone still looking for the Yamalube Marine Grease, look up suncityrvs on Ebay.

They shipped to Portugal, so I believe they'll ship just about anywhere.

I live down in Nicaragua, Central America, and work on my own reels but there aren't too many grease options but there is a Yamaha outboard dealer! However, I found some generic "made in USA" blue "hi temp" marine/bearing grease but it does seem super thick and on gears makes my Daiwa spinners noticeably tighter than original. It also goes green with time from the ice blue colour. I see people on here mentioning mixing the grease with something else to make it lighter. What could I use to do that, that will be available here? (ie something automotive).

Thank you for the replies. There aren't exactly many tackleshops/reel repair around nor really many fishermen! I have to ship literally almost everything down pretty much. I use Cal's Universal for my drags. Can't seem to find the Daiwa 555 on ebay. Also that Blue Penn grease seems to wash/run really easily and doesn't seem to hold up very long in a drag in this heat here.

Keeping this thread slowly moving along...

Is there a specific reason why Yamaha Marine Grease couldn't be used for a Carbontex-based drag stack? I'm onboard with protecting the metal surfaces and gears with it but I've been using Cal's on the drag stack. Reading through lots and lots of posts, I haven't seen this addressed before. For the price and convenience, using just one product would simplify maintenance a little.

Thanks,
Jay

For one thing Cal's contains teflon. It's what Cal developed for carbon fiber drags.        Rudy

'Using just one product would simplify maintenance'
Yup I totally agrree - that's exactly why I only use one teflon based marine grease for everything. The one I use is a British made product - no shipping problems Smiley

Dupont also makes a Teflon based Marine grease. It's almost identical in color to Cal's. I bought a one pound can for $7.00 & it's available here in the USA.

Rudy,
What part of the reel are you using the Dupont grease? Good results so far? Thanks!

Darin, I just use it for the drags the same way I use Cal's. I find no difference in preformance compared to Cal's. I use Penn Blue or Yamaha Marine on the rest of the reel. I just bought a 1 lb can of Super lube to try out on my reels but not for the drags. It seems to be a little thicker then the Penn or Yamaha. For the drags I'll stick with Cal's or Dupont Marine w/ teflon.              Rudy
