When I'm reeling in the line my spinning reel
drags a little at a certain spot while turning the handle.
I took out the handle and cleaned all areas around
where it turns. Re-greased it slightly and no
drag for about a hundred turns but then it starts
Having a drag spot again.
Grease used was Abu garcia.
The problem reels are a Shimano Sienna and a Abu Garcia 102 spinning reel.

Try marking the gears with a sharpie and take it for a spin If there is something rubbing, it should wear away the ink.

It's somewhere with the handles tightening
and the spacers and the torque I tighten the handles so there's no sloppy play in the handle when I reel.
These are spinning reel handles.
