Wipe it off and most importantly. Back the drag off all the way.

Much the same for me, I always make sure to
rinse my reels down right after each use...
And every so often hit them with WD40....

And I Service Them Once A Year Usually During
the Off-Season....

Hey guys! You definitely want to rinse them off after every use, back the drags off, and hit them with some WD40 or Corrosion Block every so often. I send them out once a year to get serviced. The reason for backing off the drags is to prevent the drag washers from getting compressed. Once that happens, you'll have a sticky, stiff drag on your reel.

Get a VS and don't worry about it. (just kidding)
I lightly rinse off, a little soap on occasion, back the drag off, and check the screws (bail, housing,etc) on the reel when you think of it. A little lube of your choice on the roller, etc and you are good to go. Nothing worse than a lost screw on the tip of the jetty.

I tighten the drag down rinse it off, back the drag back off and spray it with wd-40 then wipe off the excess. Never have any problems.

I ride'm hard & put them away wet! Just like a horse.

Actually a rinse every use and WD-40 & I never had any problems. I never heard about backing off the drag but it makes sense!
