Want some better than normal oil for reels. Not your standard oil or synthetic, I want something a little better than that.

Anyone have 2 cents.

P.s. I have been using the good old penn synthetic grease and oil.

For the parts that need grease, I have been using Yamaha Marine Grease on all of my reels. Not on the drag washers though.

For oil, I have been using ReelX.

Yamaha or OMC blue triple guard grease. Cal's reel and drag grease for the drag washers. CorrosionX for oiling.

Even on Shimano's that use open bearings I pack them with grease. If you want a high rate of freespool use the CorrsionX.

Ordered some tsi 301 today, gonna try it.

Thanks again for the input.

The TSI brand of oil is great for spool bearing's and other high speed bearing's like used in bait casting reels or other reels used for casting.

The ReelX or CorrosionX is a better choice for corrosion protection. If you want a super fast free spool the Xtreme Reel + is great but they have found you need to apply it more often.

I have one application bottle that I mix TSI 321 with CorrosionX for the best of both.

this is your choice. i use penn lubes in penn reels- drag, gears, and every thing else. it works besides that the ball is in your court and it is your choice.
