Today, I overhauled my reels that I often used this past season. I cleaned and lubricated all the gears, put them up again, and touched up the paints on the rims. One of the reels (below) was made more than 55 years ago, but still works very fine. What an excellent product ABU made! It is also very nice for us to be able to get most of the replaceable parts even now. I'd like to keep using this reel as long as possible.
