A little heavy
I have used Abu oil before on my high dollar bass reels and i found it to be a little heavy and thick. I switched to a lighter weight oil and found my casting distance to increase a little bit. overall though, for a low price oil, it does a very good job of maintaing bearings and preventing wear. I still use this oil on my catfish reel and trolling reel, where casting distance is not an issue. It really prevents the bearings from wearing out. But not the best oil for casting distance in my opinion.

Abu Garcia Reel Oil
I used another reel oil for about a year and thought it was doing a good job then a friend gave me a bottle of Abu Garcia reel oil and I started using it. From day one I could tell a huge difference from the other oil. The feel was different as was the sound of my reel and the casting was great. All I can say is I will never go back to the other reel oil. Abu Garcia is my number one reel oil!!

From beginning season to storing away
Reel maintenance is key for any good fisherman amature or professional. Although most of us are not professionals and get free reels from our sponsors, all fisherman need to maintain their reels in top shape. For amatures ike myself, when i purchase a high end reel, i know that I need to keep this reel for a long time. There is not alot of money in my house to constantly buy new reels. The Abu Garcia Reel Oil is an excellent product that helps protect your reel from costly failures dues to rusting and unwanted build up of oil residue. The light weight oil goes on easy and instantly lubricates the bearings and gears to ensure a long reel life and a mechanical error free day on the water. As we all know on the water is never a good time for your reel to fail.
