Cleaning my ultralight spinning reels

Recommended Posts

I got to thinking that I have had these little quantum ultralights for about 3-5 years now and I have NEVER took them apart and cleaned out the grit and old grease :blink:

Do you guys have any info on what get's greased and oiled?

I was going to take them apart and wash the parts in some soapy water and then dry with a wash clothes, but I don't know how they get oiled/greased.

Thanks for any info.

Seth -

I would do as you thought / clean with soapy water, but do use Dove.

Lube with a small shot of 3n1 oil.. its still the best.

Continue rubbing reels down with a guncloth.

I'm the guy wearing the same Simms longbilled hat for 10 years now.
