Did you spray WD40 onto the monofil / braid on the spool ? I understand a smooth reel internals (gears/Bail arm / roller ) would not be a factor in casting distance ?

Lure weight, line thickness, Spool design and how your line wraps onto the spool would be the factors which would be of help.

News indeed ......but intresting news . Ramper what strength braid (diam)......shock lead if any(strength/length) ...and weight of lure was used to get distance ??
PS: if this is the first time u have used wd40 could u please keep us posted how reel cranks in a few more sessions.......
improving casting distance is a topic a lot of us have lost sleep over .

i was using 50lb power pro, wire trace casting a popper 32 gms on 8 ft rod, i have been using wd 40 since last year and its the best anti rust lubricant also helps if sand is stuck in the reel, use wd 40 dont use oil when u have sand.

Ashoks post for distance.Also WD 40 is to be used only to loosen rusted nuts and screws. Actually WD 40 IS BAD FOR THE REELS . Use reel lubricant or any lubricants used for sewing machines and cycles.

@jeen spray some wd 40 on braid and see the way it moves out of your reel, all wind knots also come out easy, as for reel if i spray wd 40 always follow it up with machine oil :D

Please use caution when spraying equipment with WD40. As Jeen rightly mentioned, WD40 is a degreaser and will penetrate your reels and remove lubrication. WD40 should be sprayed onto a cloth and then use the cloth to wipe your reel clean. Do not spray directly.

Cheers

WD-40 is a water displacement spray. Norm Larsen arrived at the formula on his 40th attempt so it is called WD-40( Water Displacement 40th Formula). The main ingredient is a deep penetrating oil wihich provides lubrication and disperses water. Use it with caution as we dont know the effect of it on braid.

ok after testing it without any problems or breakups, i think its safe, i used anabonds 60 which is same like wd 40, and the braid is as good as it was before using it.
so it helps to cast longer and easy to get rid of wind knots if any.

From my personnel experience@spraying WD40will make the reel very free initially ....if you continue to use the reel same way it slowly looses balance as the gear mechanism is damaged (WD40 is a degreaser )........always make sure to use lot of reel oil after cleaningwith WD40.
