Reel grease

Post by Iknowagoodplaice » Tue Sep 28, 2010 3:24 pm

I'd like to buy some reel grease to replace my old tube of Mitchell reel grease (very old). Can anyone suggest an alternative to the reel grease sold by tackle shops, which seems to be difficult to find and quite pricey for a small pot? I'd use it for f/s and mults.

Thanks

Grease is grease mate, i.e., it sticks to metal and lubricates. I have a large tub of lithium based grease (that's good quality), which I have had for years and used for all sorts of jobs provided the temperature does not exceed 300 degrees! You are welcome to a slug next time you are in the area.

Most grease seems to solidify when in contact with water, however you could try water pump grease used in the car industry.

as far as greasing the drag washers go anything teflon based should work fine......
