So I just received a bb1 pro which I ordered. I noticed the spool has a small wobble from side to side. It isn't much but in a brand new 200 dlr reel I was expecting it to be flawless. Could this just be a small defect from factory? Is this totally normal? I just want to know if this is something that would require me to send it back to lews or if I'm making a big deal? Thanks...

If the spool tension knob is backed off, the spool will have some wobble from side to side...tighten the spool tension knob and the wobble should go away

Haha that is true. I never thought of that. What I did try was setting the centrifugal brakes all the way on max and then all the way on free but nothing happened. Thanks for chiming in.

The best reel I have ever had is the same one, I used it yesterday. I had a defective one and returned it and had a new one in 3 days, I got the 8: to 1
