The reel will not cast line.

(Print Version)

Possible Cause: Spool empty of line or insufficient line length.
Solution: Fill spool with new line or replace with new wound spool.

Possible Cause: Line tangled behind spinnerhead.
Solution: Remove front cover and spinnerhead assembly to untangle line. Remove all damaged line (i.e. abrasions, kinks).

Possible Cause: Reel spooled with inappropriate line (i.e. too heavy or braided line).
Solution: Remove line and respool with proper size line. NOTE: Braided line may not work with spincast reels.
