    I removed the spool from my new Zebco 808 to strip the line and noticed the drag washers had a light amount of grease on all surfaces. Is this normal for drag washers ? The drag works fine and is fairly smooth for a Zebco spincast reel. If there is suppose to be grease on them how often should you apply new grease ?

    Mike, the grease better be there on those drag washers. If not the washers will hang and you will likely lose big fish. I would clean them really good every year and apply a nice smooth coating of new grease. Vern
