Author Topic: Calcutta 251 Maintenance?

Hey Guys,

I just bought a calcutta 251 last week and after a day of heavy use i wanted to do some basic cleaning/relubing. Can anyone tell me how or direct me to a webpage that would show how to open it up/maintain it? Thanks for your help!

Hi calculator. I have the same reel and its great. Most important thing is NEVER get it wet. That totally screws up the drag. If the drag is slipping and sticking you have to remove the fiberous drag washer and dry it, then lube it. I don't know where to get instructions. But you don't need them- its easy to take apart. Just take your time and be methodical. BP
