RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. Remove line after deep sea fishing to wash down spool or if intending to keep in storage for long period.
  2. Avoid placing your reel on boat side rod holders when boat is travelling to prevent sea water from being splashed onto reel.
  3. Put 1-2 drops of oil on main shaft /line roller /handle knob bearings /drive gear bearings and screws after 2-3 times of usage.
  4. Send for servicing every 6 months if reel is used frequently.
