Default Re: Surfcasting reel

i just serviced my neighbors penn 6500ss for him. he had that thing loaded with white lithium grease...which is a no no, it was like the reel was packed with cement...the reel was abused for some time.. $25 bucks for parts and the past few evenings tinkering between projects i was able to make that thing smooth as silk. i think his reel had served him well as far as reliability...he told me he hasnt put grease in it for at least three im sure he will get many more years out of it.
