I see fishing guys use this oil for their reels,

Snake oil? should I just use amsoil 0w20 instead for my fishing reels?

If it did everything they claim it does it would be worth a lot more than that. Im surprised they don't mention it containing magic dust.

I use it on my salt water ball bearings. While some oils spin a tad better they fade over time. TSI 321 lasts an entire season+ with the same great results...using the smallest drop. Filled spools spin for minutes and minutes. No snake oil in fishing bearing use...and I have used most of the top brands

Ok, what properties it make give it such endurance?
I have around couple of dozen reels I am going to service once a season for fresh water and after every outing for salt.

Have no idea other than what they claim about bonding to metal....But it works. Alan Tani's web site is the BITOG for all things reels and some fishing.

Tender, bro, I am sold, I bought a case as shipping is pretty steep.

I did not some looking at the msds, and this is what it has in it:

INGREDIENTS CONTRIBUTING TO THE HAZARD:
Chemical Name CAS Number Approx % (wt/wt)
Trade Secret 41559400000-5026P ~98
Oxygenated Hydrocarbon 8002-74-2 ~ 2

98% is some secret ingredient, I am going to do a 50/50 mix in a 3in1 oil bottle and use it on my kids bikes also and my semi auto hand guns, see it fares.

Yeah, alan is the man, I need to order some replacement drag material for some old reels my buddies donated to me.
