Also, what oil are you running in your 525?

Are you using the 525 the way you received it?

Or did you break it down and check it out inside and add your own lubes?

It makes a huge difference!

I recently picked up another 525, and the idiot had it packed with grease, I mean packed!

Obviously,  he never took care of it and didn’t realize the magnets were completely disintegrated inside!

He said he was tired of wasting line every outing and that the reel is a piece of junk and would never buy another one!

The real was completely overrun to the point that I spent almost 20 minutes cutting the line off because he had 65 pound braid on there lol!

A nice servicing and a new magnet and the reel  is literally like new again!

It was actually so fast that I had to add a few magnets behind the stock ones and went with a little heavier viscosity oil!

I’m using 10W-30 automotive oil in this particular 525!

The type of line you’re using and the diameter, will affect distance greatly as well!
