Is real magic the same thing as WD-40?

I've wondered the same thing but it really drys faster I think. May have some of the similar ingredients though... Who knows.

No.....Reel Magic is a silicone based lubricant....it won't gum up the way wd-40 does over time.

WD 40 is bad for reels and guns.
It will gum up over time and it will attract every piece of dirt that floats by.

Besides the dirt collect from wd, I hate the oily feel on my hands. The magic isn't bad. I just recently started using it. I won't go with out again. It's amazing what a little line lubricant will do.

Reel magic is good stuff but I do prefer the KVD stuff better.

Reel Magic does a great job on small diameter braided line, which tends to ball up on spincast reels.

WD-40 contains fish oil and some folks use it as an attractant on jigs. It will gum up a reel so badly it is really hard to clean. It is OK so long as it is only sprayed on the jig.

So would silicone spray work?

I use KVD like it's my job, here is a small excerpt from them.

This is from the company who developed KVD L&L:
 
"Line & Lure is a special polymer blend that becomes part of the fishing line it is applied to. Other line treatments you find on the market are primarily silicone oil and solvents. Silicone oil only temporarily coats the line and solvents can damage line. Silicone oil rapidly comes off the line (on your hands and in the water), requiring re-treatment of the line after just a few casts.
The special polymers in Line & Lure are hydrophobic (water repelling) and very slippery. It doesn't allow water to draw back on to the reel spool, which eliminates the line drag that a "wet" spool has. It also protects the line from wearing out as quickly as un-treated line because it resists the abrasion that wears line out.  It contains no oils or solvents as in Reel Magic that can build up and collect dirt like silicone/oil treatments will".
