Concerning the problem that your reel spool does not turn on snags and when under pressure.Are you certain that the drag is tightend if so the drag washers may have been contaminated with oil or somthing similar just a thought:unsure:

Thats unlucky mate, i have yet touchwood ever had the displeasure of being ripped off on ebay. I would try contact the seller perhaps and see if you can get a refund. If they wont refund then i would take it to my local Penn stockists and ask them to take a look. PM Gary or David Caulfield they may be able to supply you a schematic diagram of the reel or diagnose the problem.

dont know if that was the problem but i stripped the whole reel down oiled and greased it it was mankey with salt and sand and put it together again now it works fine but the magnet side seems empty what do the magnets look like i know i sound stupid but i have just started using multipliers other than boat fishing in 30 years and it is all new especialy slosh and mag reels

The black plastic holder will have little round bits on metal in them, these sre the magnets. They aren't stuck to the spool because they've fallen out are they?

Glad you got it sorted - for future, and for everyone else who is looking, schematics

Oh, and on the "no much to these", we tend to follow the K.I.S.S. rules - Keep It Simple Stupid - and just over engineer the bits we do make ;)

thanks for the link with info mate "no much to these" wasnt a dig at the product i was just surprised at the performance of the reel then you open it up and its no full of cogs and springs and complications its a bit of a relief actualy to have a reel thats simple to service yourself i should have got one of these years ago
