Whether you are a salt or freshwater angler, you need to consider the maintenance of your fishing reel as one of your top priorities. That is if you don’t want to spend quite a bit of time replacing your reels with new ones.
The good news on that front is you don’t need to be an expert to maintain your fishing reels. The right amount of oil for your fishing reels would get them spinning as smoothly as the day you bought them.
Of course, you’d have to use the right type of oil to lubricate your reel. One such oil for fishing reels is the 3-in-1 lubricating oil.
What is 3-in-1 oil?
To those used to working with mechanical stuff or are DIY aficionados, the idea that some people don’t know what 3-in-1 oil is would seem ludicrous. But the fact is, many new anglers don’t know what it is and how they can use it to make their reels work optimally for longer periods.
The 3-in-1 oil is an all-purpose lubricating oil. It is the most common type of lubricating oil found in most households and can be purchased in most general goods store.
As a lubricant, it is formulated to cleanse, lubricate and protect metal parts against corrosion. The containers usually come fitted with a drip spout at the top making it easy to direct the oil to the innards of whatever machinery or object you want to lubricate
