  1. My wife just bought me a new abu ambassadeur reel and while i was playing with it I noticed that my old abu dosen't spin quite like it used to. What reel upkeep do you fellas do to keep those handles spinning like a top? Any advice would help, aside from new line I havent done anything to it in years.

    pull it apart,clean up the gears,pawl,etc and lube them up.grease the gears and shoot a drop or two of oil on bearings and pawl with hot sauce or any other good grease and oil,and she'll be working like new.
