Have some Avet MXL reels that I use Striper fishing in TN but also down in the salt water.
They haven’t seen a lot of trips, and I rinsed them off well in the shower after each day/trip but decided it was time to strip them down and clean and relube them to make sure all is good for future trips.
These are lever drag reels and are really easy to break down and service. For normal cleaning / grease/oil it would probably take 10 minutes tops. However I decided to strip these fully down, clean in the ultrasonic cleaner and rebuilt/lube. Even pulled the removalable shields off the bearings to clean them good and repack (the spool bearings have metal shields that I could not remove even though they had a clip ring in them... but those get oiled so I wasn’t as worried about them.
Avet has a good schematic on the website and I also found a lot of good info on Alan Tani’a reel forum site - alantani.com
No extra parts when out back together and operating fine....
I clean my Tekota reels by soaking them in my bait tank water and then I ride back and forth over Todd's boat wake to really loosen up the debris. The disadvantage of this method is that I have to tighten every screw on my boat, especially hinge screws.
