i had a gentleman on another board tell me that i should not grease things that were not intended to be grease by the manufacturer.  well, here's what happens when you fail to maintain your gear.  doesn't matter what brand of reel we're looking at, the end result is the same. i fixed this one a couple of evenings ago. the drag and all of the bearings were toast.

here's the reel foot from an accurate foot.  note the beginnings of corrosion.  i installed longer phillips head screws and tightened them down until they were firmly seated.  the grease will insure that this reel foot can be serviced if needed.  the owner has been instructed to check it periodically. 

send me an email at for questions!
