Whilst out practising my casting this afternoon i had a problem with my reel it made a horrible noise didnt go far and the handle span very fast after having a look at the power handle i'd noticed it hand bent slightly so i straightened it out with some plyers and casted it a few more times and it was fine does anyone what the problem may be?

If you cast down butt you may have caught the handle on your clothing; done it may times and even snapped a handle in two. Bend it back and it will be fine. You can cut a notch in the free spool push button so that the button is 'held' in against the sideplate to resolve this. I do it to my 65's.
