Okay, I just cleaned my 2nd Abu reel. This one was a 7000b. It may be me, but I think I hear a little gridning or something when I reel it now. I think both reels were better before. Maybe I'm wrong. I oiled what needed to be oiled, put them back together, etc... So has this happened to anyone else? I think I am going to completely tear down an Abu 5000 & work on it. Sort of use it as a test reel, since I doubt I'll really be using it much. I want to get good @ working on them & stuff like this. I figure it may be something to learn this winter.
