caution

when you put a drop of oil on the bushings, make sure you move the cast control a number higher then the current setting. otherwise a serious backlash will ensue, i learned the hard way. but concept 13 doesn't mention lubing the bushing anywhere period. or did i miss that somewhere

Yeah. I think the old Garcia's used Oilite bronze. It's self lubricating but can get tarnished. The bushings in Concepts are a polymer

habanerojooz Always lubricate, even a bushing. Friction is your enemy. Oil is needed to lessen the friction. My suggestion is an oil that has penetrating properties, especially since it is a bushing and not a roller bearing. Read up on TSI 321. Unique properties and the stuff works very well. I stopped using the other oils after discovering TSI 321 on the Alan Tani site.

Drundel I'd put on some light oil or some very slick grease.

Chuck06R1 I actually put a dab of reel butter grease on mine.

lubing bushings

so i haven't seen anyone mention lubing the bushings on the concept Z, but after using it for multiple trips a drop of oil on each spool bushing makes it a completely different reel. can the z experts chime in??
