Graphite Bearings

Post by Wayne B. »

I have a Daiwa baitcaster with graphite bearings. I don't have a manual so I must ask for some advice. Should the graphite bearings be dry or should some oil be applied...or does it make any difference? In my old compressor design days, graphite was considered self-lubricating.

hmmm, that's an interesting question and hope a reel repair guru will speak up. I wonder if one sprayed in graphite like you use to loosen up locks, if would make them scream?!
