How to oil a Daiwa Tatula reel?

Tatula reels are made of aluminum and are therefore corrosion-resistant. However, they should be cleaned after each use with a mild solvent and dried with a soft cloth. Never use petroleum-based products to clean your reel, as they will damage the finish.

The Daiwa Tatula can be easily cleaned with a simple wipe-down using a wet cloth. However, if there are any stubborn dirt or grime deposits, a soft-bristled brush can be used to scrub these areas. For tougher cleaning tasks, a mild detergent can be used – but make sure to rinse the reel thoroughly afterward to remove all traces of soap. Finally, dry the reel off completely before storage.

The Daiwa Tatula is a well-made reel, but it does require some occasional cleaning and maintenance in order to perform its best.

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 1. Remove the side plate of the reel by unscrewing the large silver screw located on the side of the reel (just below the handle).

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.

The first step is to remove the side plate of the reel by loosening the four screws that hold it in place with a Phillips head screwdriver.

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.
