Question: Which Q-Product is best for fishing reels?
Answer: Q IN-ONE
Although multipurpose oils are frequently used on fishing reels, in most instances, Q IN-ONE is the preferred product.
As a specially formulated machine oil, Q IN-ONE is easy to apply, long lasting, and safe to use on most plastics.
Because so many fishing reels are made with plastic components, it’s essential to use a lubricant with a low-solvent value to ensure that no damage occurs to any rubber seals or plastic parts.
Thanks to Q IN-ONE’s droplet applicator, it’s far easier to accurately apply oil where it’s most needed. This is in contrast to aerosol lubricants where you may risk over-spray onto the reel’s housing, or worse yet, onto the fishing line itself!
That said, if you’re looking for an oil that doesn’t require a complete strip down of the reel in order to apply, then in most cases, Q IN-ONE is the better oil of the job.
- Don’t use solvent-based oils on areas where grease is applied, as the solvent may strip away the grease.
- It’s always best to stick with the oil recommendations that are outlined in the reel’s ownership manual.
- Apply oil in small quantities and where it’s directly needed.
