cold weather reel grease.....

13 posts in this topic

well, evidentally there are no experts on this because I have not had any responses on this subject on the "expert/information" Forum. So, I"m gonna try it here.

I have some stuff called hot juice I want to try in my reels so they aren't stiff in the cold. What's the eaisiest way to clean the old stuff out of the reels? choke cleaner spray??? Any ideas?

good ol rag and carb or brake cleaner works great. should do the trick for you. or else a parts washer if you have one of them.

Carb cleaner is hard on plastic and rubber. Maybe contact cleaner or WD40 to clean. You will want to see what the freezing point of the hot sauce or whatever you are using is. Make sure it is rated for sub zero weather.

WD40 is hard on rubber , I boiled some water and pour it over the gears to rinse the old sludge out....Couple drops of Hot Sauce and your golden.

I dont know if it will we allowed or not, but threw another fishing magazine, I was sent a product to test, and I tested it on my Ice reels last year. THe stuff was amazing, it made my cheap reels real freely and it made my expensive ones even smoother. Its a "dry" lubricant that is applied with a liquid applicator. I dont know where you can find it localy, but you should be able to get it quickly if you order it online. The stuff is called Xtreme Reel +. If you Gooogle it you sould be able to find it.

Hope it helps and works for you.

I bought a huge bottle of this stuff called XTreme Reel + about 3 years ago.. I have treated about 30 of my summer reels with the stuff, and probably 15 ice reels, and still have a half bottle left.. The stuff is magic. Cant explain it.. Its crazy.. not even sure if its still being made.. So I aint sharing it with nobody!

Okay I got around to the Xtreme Reel+ and it works very well for getting ball bearings running and even for handles that just have bushings. About the worst thing about thise stuff is the bottle with it's horrible applicator nozzle. I get the lubricant all over everything else before I can even hit my target. Granted applying to handles is easy but trying to get to a ball bearing in the reel is almost like a surgical procedure.

I've been cleaning the grease out of my reels and using Hot Sauce and have been very happy with that. But I'm interested in trying the Xtreme Reel + stuff.

Did you find the Xtreme Reel in stores or order it online? I found the HSOforum so I might have to order some from there.

    •   Exactly! As long as politics ( And trump) stick around old silly town will still be around. 
    •   I did consider texture changes as well and all I can tell so far is that folks sharing online recipes and photo's didn't have serious issues with that.  They did mention having to cook out absorbed liquid when they heated up the canned slices.  When I get around to my experiment I believe I'll do some jars with fatty slices and some with cased sausage.
    •     If it gets here anytime in the near future, del is either going to have to start making trips to Mexico or go visit Dr Juice..      

    • I'm thinking the same thing, it's coming.
    •     As of 2013, (four years ago) 58 percent were in favor of legalizing marijuana too, and the FDA and DEA haven't even budged...   http://www.gallup.com/poll/165539/first-time-americans-favor-legalizing-marijuana.aspx
    •   1.  You don't have to be Michelangelo to know that Jackson Pollock was a terrible painter. 2.  Yes, that's 100% true. 
    •   Actually he is a hypocrite in 2 different ways.   1. He called out someone else's skill but was unwilling to show us how it is done. 2. He likely only called you out because you are a liberal picking on his republican buddy. If someone like Uncle Bill had made that picture he would have probably just "liked" it and moved on.
    • Don't forget, single payer is what Trump was backing many years ago. He may be angling to get it now.   Think about it. As far a partisan politics go, this would be a genius move for the republicans if the think tanks could come up with a way to spin it to the base.    Whatever party passes single payer will solidify at least a couple of consecutive presidential terms like the Democrats did.
    • I don't think he's a hypocrite, even though I question his skills as he failed to even identify the tool I poorly used.  He's just capable of identifying objectively poor photoshopping and a tool for pointing it out.  There isn't much that can change that.
    •   http://www.gallup.com/poll/191504/majority-support-idea-fed-funded-healthcare-system.aspx   58% are already in favor of single payer. I bet after last week's fiasco, those numbers go up even higher.
