Problem with reel

Recommended Posts

I have a BPS Pro Qualifier baitcasting reel that is about 5 years old.  After a cast, when I turn the handle, sometimes it doesn't fully trip the catch that allows the spool to turn and take up the line.  The line guide moves back and forth when I turn the handle, but the spool doesn't turn.  When that happens, I have to press the button again and give the handle a sudden turn which usually releases the catch.  Anyone know what the problem might be or how to solve it?

Thanks in advance.

Yup the parts in the return rachet plate area, are getting gunked up.

5 yrs. without any PM (preventive maintenance) and this is to be expected, get it completely serviced by a qualified service shop.

Good Luck & Tight Lines!!!
