Care & Maintenance
Your new Battenkill Reel has been properly lubricated prior to shipping. The simple design is relatively maintenance free, an occasional freshwater rinse is necessary to keep the mechanisms free from corrosive elements like sand and grit. The click and pawl drag components will wear with use and time, yet they are easily replaced.
