A Ross will last you a long time and they don't even say you have to lube it.
I have a Ross Gunnison III post 98 and have beat the hell out of it and have never done any thing to it but wipe it down...smooth as silk.

I have two Ross reels that I got about 8 yrs ago. They are great. I've put them through a lot of use and done little maintenance. Yours should serve you well for a long time!!

I have 3 CLA's a 2,3 and 4 the 4 is used in salt and after 3 years of heavy usage still looks and preforms like new. The 2 and 3 are used in fresh only. The drag is very smooth and will handle very large fish. I hope they last you a lifetime. Some people don't like the incoming clicker but it doesnt bother me.
