What a drag... My Trion drag stopped....

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I was out the past 2 days.  I don't know if I did something to the reel or what.  This is the first time using it since I've picked it up.  I got it used too.  I was out today got a bite and missed the set.  I asked myself did I forget to turn the drag on?  No I didn't!  It was on but there was no drag.  I then tightened it as far as possible and I can I could still pull the line out with my hand with little force.

What is wrong with it?  What can I do?

Is this a new reel?..........if so take it back to the store where you purchased it for an exchange.

I'm not sure I would send a $ 39 reel in, I would take the opportunity to upgrade. If you still want to send it in, send me a pm and I will give you the link for the repair form.

I don't remember if a spare spool is supplied when you bought the reel, if so put it on and save the spool with your line on it, or in the comment section of the repair form ask for your line back.

Most likely they will send a new reel.

ia this a baitcaster?if it is you either have braid with no tape or backing or somebody got oil on the drag washers or they put it together wrong.the first 2 are easy.if there is oil on the drag just tighten it down all the way and stop the spool with your thumb and reel against it.this takes a while but squezzes the oil off the washers and restores drag pressure.

thanx guys,  this is a used BC reel with mono.  I have a few  Trions now and not sure which I oiled or someone else has.  I'm not sure what you want to do with the drag dude it sounds like you want me too hold the reel in place and crank it while in full drag.  Is this right?

You might want to get hold of a schematic of the reel to see if:

It's assembled correctly and

The drag stack is assembled correctly

Well I searched but couldn't find the schamatics for it.  I looked at the reel and I am woundering which way the washer sit on the shaft were the handel connects at.  The washers are slightly bent.  Which way does the bend go?

As far as those drag systems I believe that dodgeguy is the leader of the Pflueger posse, he would be the one that knows how those drag system are set up..

And he is a member of BR?  What kind of damage would be done from using this drag system wrong?

Hey guys I've tried  putting the drag fully on and cranking the reel while the spool is in place.  Nothing!  I''ve also flipped the washers around and that didn't help either.  I guess I have to get them repaired.

Just another thought.... 8-)

If the reel was stored with the drags cranked down tight then I would be looking into new drag pads for the reel. They would have compressed to the point of not having any when the reel is fished and they first break lose...

Good Luck & Tight Lines!!!!

No I always take my drag off.  How much do you charge to fix the reels?

Sorry I don't work Pflueger (they are proprietary). You would need to contact them directly or visit their website and look for one of their satellite service centers close to you..

If your talking the reels I do service, then check out the signature line and visit the advertisers page for the link up to the info.

Good Luck & Tight Lines!!!!
