Reel oil

Post by markemark » Tue Aug 02, 2011 8:18 pm

Hi all,

Which oil do i need for my 525 mags, rocket red or yellow. I have just bought some red and i'm hoping its the right one, or does it not matter?

Thanks

Mark.

both will do for it but the red will make the bearings spin slower, yellow spins them quicker. just one drop is enough onto each bearing.
in warmer weather the oil will thin out more so some people use red in summer and yellow in winter.
