Boga Lube Question

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Hi, I did a search on the forum to see what people use to lube their bogas but couldn't really find anything. Mine gets dunked a lot. I rinse it in fresh water after every outing, but I was wondering what kind of lubricants you recommend to keep it working like new?

WD40 gums up over time


I take mine apart a few times a year and wipe it down with penetrating oil, let it sit for a little bit and wipe it off - 4 years no issues. It's underwater all the time also and I never rinse it down except when I fish in the rain.

Thanks for the quick responses. People always talk about how Bogas are indestructible, and I've been really impressed with them. I just don't trust saltwater though. I picked mine up today and for some reason they didn't feel smooth anymore when I opened them. I hit the moving parts with some 3 in 1 oil and that loosened it up.


I keep the bogas on my wading belt which is usually submerged or getting sprayed with salt. I guess I was asking if there is a good lubricant for saltwater environments that you guys would recommend.
