before you use it at all rub it down with corrosion X. If you end up dunking the reel while fishing break it down completely afterwards and give it a good clean. That's how I've been handling mine and it's worked well so far.

unscrew the side cap and spray lightly the corrosion X on the body and rub it around the frame good with a paper towel. on the crank side just open it up like normal and repeat the process.

Be careful using Corrosion X on the gears and drag. The Corrosion X will break the grease down and cause premature failure. Do not get any of it on the drag or it will be ruined.


If you do get the Corrosion X on the gears then you will need to relubricate them with our grease.
