If you’re just getting started, here’s an easy guide on how to clean your Tatula:
First, remove the spool and brake system from the reel. If the brake system is dirty, you can clean it with a mild soap and water solution. Next, use a small brush to clean out any dirt or debris that may be inside the reel housing. You can also use a Q-tip or toothpick to dislodge any stubborn particles. Finally, rinse everything with fresh water and reattach the brake system and spool. Be sure to lubricate all moving parts before reassembling the reel. With just a little bit of care, your Daiwa Tatula will provide years of fishing enjoyment.
Step 2. Apply a small amount of Daiwa reel oil to the gears inside the reel.
Step 3. Replace the side plate and screw it back into place. Be sure not to over-tighten, as you may damage the internal workings of the reel.
Once the side plate has been removed, you’ll be able to see the spool and the gears that it’s attached to. Use a small amount of oil on your finger to apply it to the gears—be careful not to get any on the brake or drag system, as this could cause them to malfunction.
Replace the side plate and tighten the screws securely before moving on to the next step.
