Oil in bearings?

Post by fishdorset on Sat Oct 23, 2010 8:01 pm

How much oil do any of you use in your bearings on your casting reels?

I've got my 7ht and ABU 6500 green mag elite, 1 drop of yellow rocket fuel in either bearing or run them dry on the field?

Hi Rich ,if they are ceramic you could run them dry
but a small drop of yellow would be ok but only a
very small amount try dipping a offcut of shockleader in
pot 1 drip of end it helps if you remove dust shield of
one side of bearing .
