Dented The Side Of My Spool

Recommended Posts

So I was cleaning a bc reel and accidentally knocked my spool over, it hit the concrete and now it has a small dent in the ring. Will this effect casting?

How bad is the dent? Can you install the spool and does it spin freely without making contact with the frame?

Probably, but it depends if you notice it.

 

Give it a try and determine if it is detrimental to your use of the reel.

 

If it is, order a new spool.

Not sure if the lip or the spool skirt was dented.  If the lip, make sure the concrete didn't nick the lip, which can damage the line.  If it did, smooth it up.
