Reel Design and Maintenance : Most modern reels are typically designed and constructed so they provide years of service when properly maintained. Materials, service and use, tolerances, alignment, part configuration, and other criteria are considered when designing today's reels.

I'm sure we've all heard the stories of a reel that worked flawlessly for years without any maintenance at all, until one day…

The type and degree of maintenance required to keep your reel in tip-top condition will obviously depend on several factors. The amount of time spent on the water actually using the reel, how it's stored, the brand/model/features a reel has, what type of water you fish (e.g. salt vs. fresh), whether your reel has greased or oiled bearings, and what minor maintenance is performed (e.g. flushing, periodic mini-lube or just an occasional wipe down), are some examples of the hardware factors. more

Question / Answer
Q: If I leave my ceramic hybrids dry will they wear faster?
