Reel Grease

I used to use marine bearing grease and never had any problems. 
It’s inexpensive and available everywhere. Like I said; never a problem with it.

For the past couple of seasons I switched to a synthetic brake caliper grease called Sil-Glyde. 
I’ll guess it’s a silicone based product but, the bottom line is, it’s made to work well in a very hostile environment.

Think about the conditions that an automobile brake caliper has to deal with all day, every day; friction, high heat, exposure to dirt, dust, salt and moisture. 
I started servicing my own brake calipers with it and it worked better and held up better than any brake grease I ever used.

I figured if it was good for brakes, it had to be good for reels.

So far, so good in the reels.

It’s available in tubes and tubs at most good auto parts stores. 
You can also find it online.

Hi guys, what's a good Grease I can use on reels like Penn, Shimano and VS?  

I’ve been using penn grease on my reels bought with the 5oz penn oil bundle and has been working nice as a charm, other people may have better grease but for me the penn grease works great.

Can Penn grease be used on other reels like Shimano and Vanstaal?

I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed but penn grease is just the name brand but it yes should work. Make sure to wipe down the reel of any sand residue or water from recent usage. And then apply the grease to the areas.

I have been using The Blue Yamalube for salt water. I love the stuff, nothing magical about the stuff . But it gets  the job  done great.
