Default Re: Rod restoration

A solution of vinegar and water will do a lot for cleaning up a reel.
Just strip it as far as you feel comfortable then soak it over night, rinse, and then brush it with a soft tooth brush.
After it's all cleaned up, you'll have to lube it.
An "official" reel lube like Quantum or Penn is best but any machine oil of a medium viscosity will work
