What’s wrong with my reel??

Recommended Posts

Hi, my reel bail arm seems to return too far. Any idea how I can fix. The pictures are in the open and closed position

The screw that holds the arm might have come loose and the arm has come away from its position. Might have to take it apart and check the springs and stoppers are all correctly placed and put it back together.

Take it to a professional.... the springs are notoriously difficult to get back in correctly

There's not a lot to them, as long as it's not bent out of shape, which is pretty common, then simply pull it to bits and see what's broken.

The bail spring guide has popped out of it slot on the bail arm.

Just open the cover on the side of the bail arm with the line roller and slot it back in.

The bail spring guide sits inside the spring. not that hard. would take about 1min.

Be warned the spring in the bail arm is a massive pain to put back in. did it twice and spent alot of time trying to get the spring in correctly
