What is wrong with my Pflueger Trion Spincast Reel?

Recommended Posts

One year ago I bought a Pflueger Trion Spincast reel and I absolutely loved it. I recommended it to my friends and they all bought some too. I had never had an issue with it and I do take care of my fishing gear and keep them clean. Okay, so last week I was on the boat fishing and I went to cast and as soon as I pressed the thumb button the line just fell to the water. It's not supposed to release the line until I take my thumb off of the button but it will not hold the line in place to cast. So I reeled in and tried and tried again but as soon as I clicked the thumb button the line would just release and not allow me to actually cast. Instead of holding down the thumb button and then releasing it with my cast it just drops the line and doesn't hold it in place. So I took the cone off of the reel and took all the old line off and cleaned it out and then re-spooled it and it still will not cast correctly. I have compared it to my other reels and it all looks normal inside the reel. I do not understand what is wrong. Is there some sort of spring that could be broken? I really like this reel and I want to fix it if possible. Has anyone ever had this issue?

Thank you Darren! I have been fishing for a long time but I am just now learning how to do certain things with Reels and such. I am 23 and trying to learn all I can.

sorry I didn't read your post correctly. Spin cast problems can sometimes be corrected by re-spooling. Other than that it's hard to say without seeing it
