Rated 5 out of 5 by smallwater Works great. I've used this on several spinning and baitcasting reels with excellent results for several years. The Ambassadeur C3's & C4's came with a little tube of this with a small, narrow nozzle that deposits 1 small drop of oil right where I want it. I'm going to fill the small bottle from the big one. Abu-Garcia, I suggest you put a better nozzle on the 1 oz. bottle of your excellent reel oil. February 5, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by tablerockbasscat Silicote Reel Oil Yes there are more expensive oils on the market. That does not make them better! I have used this product religiously on my reels quarterly! I never experience binding in the bearings! Used properly, this oil can extend the life of reel for years! February 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by djdoug22 Great Product I've tried many different Reel Oils but I always go back to Abu Garcia's Silote Reel Oil. By far, I get the most out of my reels when I use this product. Other oils just don't last. With this oil, you don't need to re apply nearly as often as it's competitors. I highly recommend! February 2, 2011

A:Generally, reel oil is applied to bearings (1 drop per bearing), spool shafts and bushings. Reel grease is applied to drive gears and worm gears and maybe other parts. I suggest you read the instructions and parts schematic for your reel. Use this oil sparingly, not like I used to. Your oil will last longer and you won't gunk up your reel. If the tip on this is too big to get the oil into small spaces, try putting some in a small container and using a toothpick to dribble a drop or 2 where you want it. Good luck!

A:just pop off the side cover with a small screwdriver and give her a few squirts. check to make sure the inside is clean and free of debris. q-tips are a good choice to degunk the inside. seal her back up and you're ready to go!
