Any advise would be appreciated.In the hut the handles of only some of my reels are smooth but when fishing outdoors they seize up and are hard to turn.Funny thing is that some of my cheaper reels don't have a problem.Is there anything I can use to fix this?Is this a grease vs oil scenario?TIA Alan

Kinda sounds like a moisture problem to me . Try drying out your reels completely,then lube,but don't use too much....when it's cold too much grease or oil will make them operate a little stiff
