This is a trick that the Hibdon boys use and it works. Spray reel magic on your soft plastics to keep them fresh when you are not using them also spray your spinner baits and buzz baits to keep the skirts from getting all jacked up. good luck, Drew

Interesting , Thanks :)

Reel Magic is also good for reducing ( eliminating ? ) line memory.

What,Are you kidding? I've never heard this one before. How do you use it? I have always tried to work at elliminating petro type scents never heard of using them for an attractant. I from Missouri you got to" show me"

Welcome to the sight gonfishin :)

I actually read an article in an early 90's... maybe late 80's Bassmaster about WD40 being used as a scent. However I've never had enough confidence in the idea to even think about trying it. lol

I thought that I heard one time that WD-40 has fish oils in it, don't know for sure and don't use it. I'll stick to Mega Strike and Kickin Bass.

Using WD-40 on reels can let it get inside and break down the grease and oil. Then the inside begins drawing dirt and water. Catfish do love the odor, but some states are considering outlawing it being on a lake since it contains pollutants. I use Reel Majic on baits, line, rod guides, and noisy boat seats among many other uses. Jim

Have to agree with Imonembad. wd 40 is basically diesel fuel dont think I would want to use that as a scent
I don't use it as a scent all in itself. I was saying that I use it on my blades and I just get the benefit of its scent. I have never really noticed if I get more strikes. I just found out myself that WD-40 has a scent that bass tend to like. I was only using it for my reels and swivels.

I didn't think about the pollutants. That never crossed my mind. I will have to go to something else to lubricate my equipment.

Out of curiousity I tried the KVD line conditioner and I was surprised on how good it actually works - cuts down on lime memory and backlashes

I think when the stuff first came out it was a lot better than it is now days. I find myself having to go to it more often then I use to. but it works on everything I put it on my bow and deer stands to quiet them down.
