I unspooled my citica and put some ardent crease inside the gear and now it's like I got the breaks on. Even when I loosen the cast control it still throws stiff. Can't flip at all. Hopefully I didn't F up my reel. Any suggestions are helpful Have any of y'all experienced this?

Take it back apart and clean all the grease out of it. That should cure the problem.

sounds like you got grease in the pinion gear or your anti reverse is dragging on the drive gear

You should never add grease in the way you just described. Some guys will put a very small amount of oil on the spool shaft but you do NOT want grease on it. That will kill the performance quick.
