Make ready, one by one
I'm still running long almost every day (about 70 km/week), and will keep doing so until my fishing season starts in March. When I can spare time during weekends, I'm getting my tackle ready, one by one. I recently got another ABU reel and I overhauled it today. I used no special parts and no special lubricants, but just carefully cleaned each inner-part and oiled (Shimano spray oil). I took this video for my future reference, and you can see how smoothly the spool turns around. Though the spool works less smoothly after I attach the level-winder and related gears, but I believe you never have stress when you cast using this reel.
