I have a problem with this reel. After casting, the bail does not flip fully and engage without my manually doing it.
Does the spring weaken over time and need repair; or is there something else I can do?


On average, your heart beats 100,000 times a day. One day, one of those heartbeats will be your last. Then what?

The answer is found in Jesus Christ who said "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

Close the bail manually. It reduces line twist. With a little practice, it will become automatic.
