    I have a number of Abu's that need oiling. How often do you guys oil your reels?

    Jeremie I like to disassemble clean and re lube once per season. A drop of oil more often doesn't hurt. Do not over lube. This will cause sand and dirt to accumulate.

    I think it really depends on how often you fish. The more you expose your reels to the elements the more you want to clean and re oil your reels. I completely take my apart and clean them using WD40 and a few rags and que tip swabs and after they have no sign of dirt or build up I regrease and oil my reels and I do that 2 times a year.
