spinning reel shims

Recommended Posts

I am getting my reels ready for the upcoming season,on one of my reels I noticed the handle did not seem to be working as well,and the rotar started to become wobbly. I took the reel apart and laid out all the pieces and cleaned them.I took out the schematice and noticed I was missing shims on the main gear. Could this be the cause of the problem?

Probably not.  A wobbly rotor sounds like a loose rotor nut. Would also mess with the handle rotation. What reel is it?

It is the ardent s400-m. This reel model was the best spinning reel that Ardent made when they produced "made in USA" fishing reels.I have other reel shims that I will add plus I will tighten my roter nut.I also have one that is new in box,if this does not work I will use it as a parts reel. Thanks for the input
