There is virtually no maintenance required. Occasionally, a few drops of TiborLube™ should be applied to the drag felt. If sand or dirt gets into the reel, simply remove the spool, flush with fresh water and reinstall the spool. Aside from the drag felt, there is nothing on the reel to lubricate.

Please note: Exceeding the recommended capacity by over-filling the spool and/or putting line on too tightly or with too much tension may damage the spool and is not covered under warranty. Please refer to the capacity chart and use the Backing Groove on the spool as your guide. For best results, we recommend micron backing. Should you have any questions about backing for your reel, please contact your authorized Tibor dealer.
