  • Make sure that the reel has completely cooled down before you start any maintenance
  • Washing maintenance after every fishing trip is recommended to ensure that you will be able to enjoy using the reel for many years to come.
  • Use warm water, under 30 degrees centigrade.
  • If it has terrible dirt, you can use Neutral detergent.
  • Do not use chemicals, such as, gasoline, kerosene, benzene as these chemicals.

When you notice a deterioration in spool rotation

If the spool is not rotating as smoothly as usual even after normal maintenance then this may indicate that there is a build-up of salt in the bearing near the handle.

  1. Carefully immerse the reel in freshwater up to spool as shown in the diagram. Do NOT immerse the whole reel. Rotate the spool to dissolve the salt and regain performance.
  2. Remove the reel from the water and hold it up with the connector side facing down to ensure that the water completely drains from inside the reel.
    If that does not improve the situation, please contact us for repair.(Repair service is available only for our customers)

If you use Recycler-DS, you can re-spool your line easily and you can get rid off salt and dirt perfectly from your PE line. Please check>>
