Fathom 2 Casting Special - Newbie advice

4 posts in this topic

So I finally decided to transition from spinning to surf casting and picked up a Slosh 20 to start with. Easy to cast, no problem. Then I started looking for second setup for the fall season and after playing with the Fathom II 15 Casting Special, and seeing how different it was, my brain wouldn't let me leave without it lol. I've never owned a reel of this caliber, so I'm just seeking some advice and tips on general maintenance and use.

One concern I have is bearing lubrication. With the "special" high speed bearings, what oil would be recommended? 

 

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Cool thanks for the reply! I have some regular Penn oil but wasn't sure if some type of specialty oil would be better. I'm very impressed with its performance and I'm pretty OCD when it comes to this kind of stuff haha.
