Abu Garcia 5600 C4 odd problem

Recommended Posts

Hey guys....i've got an odd problem with an Abu Garcia 5600C4.....when i press the clutch to cast the spool doesn't want to move....now if i barely push it forward then it spins smoothly and will cast...but everytime i push the clutch in it has this little glitch. When i take the spool out and spin it on the shaft it is perfectley smooth. Now here is something that may give someone a clue.....if i have the star drag off of the reel and push in the clutch, it spins right away...but when i put it on and tighten the drag at all then it has that little glitch that won't let it free spool unless i push the spool forward first. The spool will spin backwards just fine.....any ideas?

Sounds like the clutch is gummed up and not lifting the pinion high enough. Hard to say without seeing it.
