>> Milky oiled parts and gears [topic: previous/next]

I've been quite happy since moving to CorrosionX oil. After a few outings and rinsing off my reels, at some point, I noticed that the oiled parts, worm gears, spool bearings, and the drive gears start to turn to a mayonnaise consistency.

I've generally taken this as the oil breaking down, is this true? or is it that I've just got water mixing with the oil.

I'd like to know how serious this situation is if I prolong the periods of breaking down and relubricating the reel.

Isn't regular mayonnaise just an emulsification of oil and eggs? So your grease and water would be kinda the same with your gears being the blender. Sound right? Not sure if it's normal though.

I love it, I'm using Aioli as lube.

if it doesn't work you can still have it with your fish.

I had the same problem with my reels recently. Then when grease enters my bearings and slows em down.

Perhaps using less grease and keeping my reels more dry during/after use would lessen this.
