Reel squeaks or makes loud noise when casting.

(Print Version)

Possible Cause: Lack of lubrication (oil) to spool shaft and/or spool shaft ends.
Solution: Add lubrication (light oil) to spool shaft and spool shaft ends.

Possible Cause: Spool tension washers are worn.
Solution: Remove spool tension knob and turn spool tension washer over. Replace if this has already been done once before. Remove spool bearing spring clip (on opposite side of reel), remove bearing, and turn spool tenison washer over again. Again, replace after both sides become worn.
