I had the pleasure to fish and hang out with Alan Tani at the Ilwaco Tuna club in Aug. 2018. For two days he put on a clinic repairing and servicing reels. The Avet question came up several times because Avet says no, but Alan believes the drag needs to be cleaned and greased with a light coat of Cal's. He would wipe the drag material with a clean rag, apply Cal's with a toothbrush, work it in, and wipe excess with a clean rag...done.
He also stressed the importance of cleaning and greasing the bearings. Alan and his website are full of information of the care and feeding of your reels. https://alantani.com
