Bogo grip maintance

Postby mb82 » Sat Aug 15, 2009 3:08 pm

What do you all oil up your Boga Grips with? Mine came with a small vile of what seemed to be WD40 of course that's been used up. After this week mine is fine but I still fear it getting any rust.

There is a product out there called Corrosion-X that is the only thing that I use. Highly recommend it.

I've had one for 6 or 7 years and I rinse it occasionally with Salt Away. That is it. I get it certified by IGFA each year (not sure why :?: ) and it is still spot-on. I have not used any lube. In fact, I just bought a 60, so if someone wants a used 30-pounder I might be talked into selling it. Juz remember that a gentle fresh water rinse helps but water alone is not the best for removing salt. Better than nothin'. If you add some salt away or gentle soap you can get all the salt off.

Mine gets hosed off occasionally. Esp if i wade with it and it gets submerged.

60# ??????? I wish I was that optimistic about my local fishery. My 30# is usually overkill.

Thanks a bunch. You know it could be for the smallest fish on record for a weight class. Isn't there a line class record for lizard fish?

Here is a link I found:

http://www.hookflyfishing.com/Store/pc/ ... tegory=100

They said it was $30.00

I also heard that if you caught a fish you thought was a record and weighted it on the boga, that you would still have to send it back in to IGFA to have it checked for certification before they would accept the record.

Not sure where I heard that. Just somehting that was bouncing around in my head....
