After each use, Billy Pate reels should be rinsed thoroughly in fresh water. All reels are lubricated at the factory prior to assembly and relubrication is generally not necessary. Tibor Graphite Lube may be used to lubricate the cork drag disc. Complete warranty and maintenance information is included with each reel, or download complete instructions and a parts list in PDF
