  • Reel oil (recommendations)

    Baitcasting Reels . I use Remington gun oil but does anyone know of a good reel oil ? I ordered some on line for about $10.00 a ounce did'nt work very good and cost too much .Years ago used 3 in 1 oil but they changed it and it's too heavy now .

        I use Rocket Fuel on my conventional reels. Yellow on competition reels. Red on everything else.

        Super Lube on gears. Cal's Drag grease on drag washers, if needed

          If gun oil works for you jut keep using it. I use to use gun oil with no problems. Now I use Reel Butter. It's great stuff. It's made to lubricate steel, brass, steel, everything you find inside a reel.
