Daniel Rice: Thanks Sean! Go catch some big ones man!
Sean Kennedy: tks alot man, im from singapore and just cleaned my shimano scorpian great video keep it up :D
HTxRocketsChamps2010: thanks for the help
MrAvocado99: Can u do this with the line on the spool?
ls vtec: true thought so myself
Daniel Rice: Nice...I've heard that before! lol Thanks
brinkleee3000: No kiddin, at 1st glance, thought u were Iaconelli...lol.
Informative vid....Thanks man!
Daniel Rice: The spool tension knob is on whatever side the handle is on. My lefty reels have the spool tension knob on the left. On a right hand reel, it would be on the right.
The Spool Tension Knob is the round looking cap. It controls how much resistance is put on the spool, which ultimately controls how fast your lure falls to the ground. Tighten the knob so that your lure falls in a controlled manner. You don't want it to just drop in a freefall motion. This causes bird nests in your line.
cb7pwn: i thought the "spool brake system" was on the right, which you adjust for lure weight casting?... im still confused man lol but thanks for the answer haha
Daniel Rice: It's a centrifugal braking system. If you push the pins toward the center of the wheel, they are disengaged, meaning the brakes will not slow down your spool. If you pop the brakes out (little plastic things) they will rub on the inside of the race, causing your spool to slow down as your lure hits the water. I usually pop 2 or 3 out...more if it's really windy. That's it my friend!
cb7pwn: really stupid question.. but i have just bought 2 baitcasters, i wanna try something new as opposed to spinning, i just want to know what the "brake" mechanism is under the sideplate? i know how to oppperate everthing else and their functions, but not the inner brake
Daniel Rice: Appreciate the comment ronzonio.
ronzonio1: awesome vid man! helped a lot for my currado. keep up the great vids.
Daniel Rice: Yeah, because the reel itself lied to you about it's design. Tool.
BBChEvY859: freak you, my low profile isn't like that at all,you don't know crap
connor mobbs: can u still do the exact same thing with a round reel instead of a teardrop one?
piznimp01: Sticking with the pink weights huh i found the heavy weights (grey) for the citica work much better. Cast like a dream after switching
Jan Thao: Ok cool thanks subscribed hope to see some more of your vids
Jan Thao: How often do you recommend cleaning your reel?
Hunter Cole: hey i hope you can answer this, i am just getting my reel ready for bass season which opens in june here, but I just took the previous line off and a small piece of cut line fell into the little holes in the spool. Do you know of any way to get that out? Its a Quantum energy PT
xx4james4xx: Do u grease or oil the worm gear?
xx4james4xx: I didnt say that i didnt like the part of the vid that i watched, i like your other vids i was just sayin it would have been nice if the music wasnt so loud
xx4james4xx: Then i couldnt here u talk about the reel, think about your reply next time
xx4james4xx: Didnt watch cause music was to loud
TidePride37: hey man, is 91% isopropyl alcohol okay for cleaning?
max peterson: nice vid man
chefdta561: The for the video. Good instruction (I hate reading manuals). I have the citica and plan on using it in saltwater (inshore) to get fish out of mangroves and docks as well as fresh water. Do you think with cleaning and oiling as shown that the citica will hold up well in the salt or should I use it only for fresh water? Thx in advance for your opinion.
Matt N: when and how exactly would you grease a baitcaster ?
Isaac Young: I have a reel that has not been used yet. It has been in the box for one year. Should I do basic lubrication before bringing it out? Or can I leave it alone and just start to fish?
Isaac Young: If it is submerged in fresh water, is it necessary to open it up and clean it? Cause I have had my spinning reel fall in a pond every now and then. I thought it was only saltwater that made it so it had to be completely opened up?
Isaac Young: How do you know when to clean the handle side of the reel? I just bought a Shimano Coriolis 100GA (my first baitcaster). I did not use it last season, but plan on taking it out this season. The manual states for maintenance, but I don't know when to clean the handle side. Should I just do the basic lubing before I go out? Or since it hasn't been used I can just start using it? Also, when should you clean the handle side of the reel?
Matt N: great video very helpful but how often does this need to be done on a baitcaster? thanks
MrNitrorcx: Nice vid! i just oiled my curado to get ready fpr spring bass fishing!
ERIC JAMISON: great video bro-shimano all the way!
crizzel26: Ardent reel kleen works wonders for cleaning reels.Should try it
originalvalleykid: great job! you taught me how fo sho!! thanks!!!!!!!!!!!
HATINTHEKAT: hey great video man, you dumbed it down for me and showed all the steps, other videos have been very confusing and didnt really show us how to do it, but when you oil the center and lip of the breaking cover will that make the latch for it turn easier? cuz when i need to change my vbs breaks my latch is hard to turn, please and thank you!
the301crew: wat the different oiling the shaft and the pining gear
goatkiller68: does this work for all reels or a majority
billygtrg: i need help! my spool wont spin. like when i click the thumb release it works fine but when i spin the handle, the handle spins but the spool doesnt, and he thumb relese doesnt go up. so i manually have to click it up..whts wrong with it??

Zachary Faulkner: how often does a reel have to be cleaned and oiled?
Lawrence Hsieh: Thanks for the video! Just got a Shimano Citica (my first ever baitcasting reel) and it's been awesome using it, although I still lack the skills in regards to casting.
