    I got a second hand manta reel.

    It is a bit stiffer than my other reel when I unroll it, I was wondering if you guys grease your reels ?

    From the manufacturer they use anti-seize. Not grease.

    The Delrin bolt nuts on these are so hard to remove

    They are nylock nuts. Sound slike it has a bit of corrosion on it as well. You could try a penetrating oil.
