|BAITCAST REEL MAINTENANCE||Spincast Reels | Spinning Reels|
After a day's fishing, wipe down the reel with a damp cloth. Light oil should be applied to handle knob rivets, on each end of the spool shaft and the part of the spool shaft that passes through the pinion gear.
After the saltwater and saltwater residue is rinsed from the reel, use a clean dry cloth to remove the excess water from the reel and spool. Then, using a good quality lubricant that contains "corrosion inhibitors," apply a light coating on the reel. We recommend using products designed for fishing reels.
• Your reel has been designed to provide years of dependable performance when properly maintained and lubricated.
• Be sure to exercise care when applying oil and grease and use only small amounts of each when lubricating, as excess is unnecessary and can hinder performance of reel.
• The more frequent or severe the use, the more often and thoroughly a reel should be serviced. Your reel should be cleaned and re-lubed after each trip of saltwater fishing or if dropped in dirt or sand.
• Annually the reel should be professionally cleaned and lubricated by a Zebco Warranty Center or the factory. Lubrication points are as follows (some part descriptions will vary from reel to reel):
NOTE: Grease and Oil used should be a good quality, light grade product designed for fishing reels.
