i use TURTLE WAX CAR WASH WAS TOLD BY CAVITTS CUSTOM RODS that was the best thing to wash them with because of something in the soap that protects the glass all my rods are custom and i want to get the most from them call him and ask
I just hose them off and shake them dry a little, or use very light compressed air if im at work to dry them. What I have heard from both penn and shimano is *not to use high pressure water or air* because most nice reels are sealed so well that high pressure water or air just drives gunk in more then it takes it off. :thumbup:
I saw on one of the fishing shows where the host advised to clean your rod and reels with furneture wax? Like the spray on type. Havnt tried it. Anyone use this? I usuallly just rinse very well with water and coat them with armor all once or twice a year. I also break down my reels once a year and lube them up with reel grease/oil.
