SERVICING — Daiwa Alphas R-Edition

Post by LLCC »


This reel servicing step by step guide is long overdue. I had posted several at the FNR website, but it went down and along with it, my work is lost.

Fortunately, I had posted 2 step by step guides at my Multiply site. But alas, not for long, as I’m notified that the photo hosting segment of Multiply will be discontinued.

So here’s my latest step by step guide for simple lubrication and reassembly of Daiwa’s Alphas R-Edition. In it, you will find that I prefer to use grease to protect my reels from corrosion. In fact, it is now my habit to strip and grease up a brand new reel even before it has a chance to go fishing. And with careful cleaning after every use, the reel retains its original finish without a spot of corrosion after almost 4 years’ use exclusively on salt water.
