Seems to me that my 6501c3 will start to bind a little when on the water sometimes, but it goes away with a little lube on the levelwind whenever Iím fishing. Everytime I finish fishing I rinse my reels with the freshwater taps at the pier, so I doubt itís corrosion, but why does the free spool become all wonky when Iím fishing? I lube my reel bearings and levelwind with old abu oil in the tubes. Is that causing the problems? Used to use air tool oil and it seems that worked, but what am I missing here?

Start by cleaning and degreasing the entire LW system, then use only 1 drop of oil,  preferably TSI.
