    I have 4 low profile baitcasters (1 old Daiwa, 1 Shimano, and 2 Bass Pro), and the line guide on the level wind no longer works on any of them when line is pulled out of the reel. They all work find when reeling in line. I lubricated the gear this winter with hot sauce and suspect that I may have over lubricated them. I hardly ever use the reels so I am sure that they are not worn out (one of the Bass Pro reels has never been used). I would appreciate any advice you could provide, especially any suggestions on how to fix the problem.
