tarpon 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??

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

not familiar with this particular reel but have found that anytime you have bushings you can polish and get them slicked up it helps the overall performance of the reel, the old garcia reel with bushings are a good example of this
good luck

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.

Not sure, but I think his bushings are poly or plastic of some sort rather than brass. If so I wouldn't try to polish them, just use a drop of light oil instead.

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

tarpon 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

I don't think they say yes or no. Their website just says no more corrosion or environmental wear.
