Default Re: reel help

You have some salt build-up in a fairly inexcessible spot
You could bring it to a good tackle shop for a cleaning or you could break it down and clean it yourself.
It's not really hard as long as you keep track of what goes where.(and don't lose any little pieces)
The first thing I would do is try to work some light machine oil in without taking anything apart.

I completely break down and clean all my saltwater reels regularly.
Probably as often as I clean the line
I got use to it doing it back in the days when I fished a Medalist in the salt
Those required a thorough cleaning and lube after every outing
