Reel and Rod End of Season Care – Sportboat Roundup

Happy New Year! Tonie is back with another Sportboat Roundup, and this week she goes over a few tips and shows us how she personally likes to breakdown one of her setups and some of her tackle. Cleaning and servicing your gear in the offseason is essential for increasing the longevity and effectiveness of your investments and is well worth the time.

Keep in mind this is how Tonie likes to do it. There’s many different ways to breakdown and clean gear, and some are more extensive than others. This video is a simplified version of overall care when winterizing your gear, and we hope that you take home some new knowledge!
