Greasing Felt Drag Washers?

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

Sorry if it has been asked before. I did a search, and did not see anything specific.

 

For those reels that have felt washers in the drag stack, do any of you grease them (Cal's or Shimano)?

 

Thanks in advance.

i grease all washers with cal's then wipe off with an old white undershirt. that way, i'm not leaving any lint on the drags. make sure to wipe the grease off good; only leave a thin film on for smoothness and water repellent. this is essential especially in the winter months when water can get between the drags causing them to seize or frozen or skip.

The felt washers I've seen in some Shimano and Daiwa reels were greased, so I would use a drag grease on felt.

 

FWIW, I usually change them out for similar sized HT-100s, greased with Cals or Shimano drag grease.
