Greetings all - I wanted to say ďhiĒ and Thanks for all the great info here

Servicing my fleet of Avet MXLís that havenít had a lot of time on the field but also havenít had any service despite a couple of trips to the salt and several on the lakes/rivers

Thanks to the posts here I had the confidence to fully tear down the reel, clean throughly in an ultrasonic and rebuild.








2 down and 6 to go.... then to tackle a dozen Tekota 500ís  Shocked

Small world - lived in Fuquay on the west side of town for about 5 years 20+ year ago - very different place now.....

I fish mostly Smith Mountain Lake in VA for striped bass.... though try and get to the Chesapeake Bay for salty striper in the winter and cobia in the summer - and planning a Pamlico trip near Labor Day for old drum / bull reds....

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.
