Supposedly most reels can be made to do that. Can't say that I have tried it, or care to.

I actually watched one of my best friends do that to several of his reels. he was turning the handle while still pushing down the thumb bar. He did it while fighting fish. he held his thumb on the spool and was always engaging it partially. Spool pins are bad. Plus most likely a few gears.

Sounds like it could be a bad pinion gear, take it apart and see what you find

It is the
Yoke / Turnkey Pawl Springs
and
the Yoke.
Very easy to fix.

Thanks for the input guys!

ripnlips1, you seem pretty confident. How easy to fix is it? How expensive?

Take off the handle then remove the side plate. The spring will be right there and the yoke is the platic piece that the pinion gear rides in. The springs are on 2 small poles on top of the yoke. The yoke is plastic and the pinion gear spins rubbing it. It wears out the plastic and becomes loose. Thats why the reel makes that sound when you hit the handle when it is free spooling. I buy all my parts from Southwest Parts there in Dallas. Shouldn't cost but a few dollars in parts.

The first pic is what you will see when you take the side plate off. There is only one spring in this pic as this is a parts reel. This is a Chronarch but basically the same parts. The second pic is the yoke with the pinion gear in it. The third pic is the yoke. The pinion gear spins in the horseshoe part of the yoke. That will give you an idea of where the pinon gear spins and wears out the plastic.

+1 The pinion gear has most likely worn a groove in the plastic yoke and it causes this. Fixed a Curado with the exact same issue before.

Be sure and lube with some grease with help prevent this happening too soon again.

Ha I've got an mgx that sounds like that when I set the hook. Sent it in a couple months ago and it still does it. It just sets in a cabinet now.
