Abu Garcia Silicote Reel Oil
From beginning season to storing away
Reel maintenance is key for any good fisherman amature or professional. Although most of us are not professionals and get free reels from our sponsors, all fisherman need to maintain their reels in top shape. For amatures ike myself, when i purchase a high end reel, i know that I need to keep this reel for a long time. There is not alot of money in my house to constantly buy new reels. The Abu Garcia Reel Oil is an excellent product that helps protect your reel from costly failures dues to rusting and unwanted build up of oil residue. The light weight oil goes on easy and instantly lubricates the bearings and gears to ensure a long reel life and a mechanical error free day on the water. As we all know on the water is never a good time for your reel to fail.

A little heavy
I have used Abu oil before on my high dollar bass reels and i found it to be a little heavy and thick. I switched to a lighter weight oil and found my casting distance to increase a little bit. overall though, for a low price oil, it does a very good job of maintaing bearings and preventing wear. I still use this oil on my catfish reel and trolling reel, where casting distance is not an issue. It really prevents the bearings from wearing out. But not the best oil for casting distance in my opinion.

Real Reel Oil
This premium grade oil has been a great year round product that has kept my reels operating quietly and efficiently in all seasons. The penetrating lubricant provides long lasting protection for the moving components of my reels. A smooth, fast retrieve is much needed when reeling in big fish. This is the same formula used by professional service centers and it has protected my reels from wear, rust and corrosion better than other products I have used.

A must have, that you maybe never thought about
I have used reels without oil for a few years now, and I never really thought too much of it. A little while ago I saw a bottle of this at the store, and figured I would give it a go. It was amazing the difference I noticed right away. My casts were smoother and longer, and I have had no problems with any wear since I started using it. This will for sure extend the life of your reel for a small fraction of the cost of replacing it.
