i use this stuff on my reels and every bit of metal i can find on the yak and accessories

great for sounder and battery terminals

I'm late to discover this stuff, having used CRC in ignorance until recently, so many of you are probably like yeah, been using it for years mate

INOX won't dissolve all the decals and printing on your reels and won't damage your line

good for trying to preserve the crappy 304 stainless too (thats the stuff with surface rust stamped A2, instead of A4 (316))

reiss.

ps - apparently stella handles don't like INOX, so don't use it there.

It's a great Lubricant I know but I've heard that it doesn't work well with rubber i.e it ruins seals.

I can't speak from personal experience but just saying what I've heard.

Inox is an external coating, on reels best applied by rags, it washes the grease out of your bearings and leaves them un protected when people decide to blast it down handle shafts and main shafts, Grease is what protects your metal from Saltwater long term. It also causes anti reverse bearings and sleeves to fail because it applies a thin layer to the surface causing the needle bearings to not be able to get grip. Anyone in the reel repair industry almost loathes Inox because of the issues that arise from people over using it. As WY has said plenty of rubber and plastic components don't like being left soaking in it.

As you stated though, it's great on yak fittings and electrical terminals etc.

I used to use CRC, I use the CRC loosely as I cant remember which CRC product it was :?:
But of late I have been using CRC Multilube Gel in an aerosol form its a synthetic lubricant, goes on as an oil sets to a grease :!: Seems ok to date...
