What the heck?!!?

Recommended Posts

Third cast with my new Quantum KVD reel and the stupid thing locks up.  wont reel in, thumb bar wont press, nothing! >:) >:)

Finally got it to reel in but its really hard and coarse like something's bad wrong.

What the heck?  Now I gotta go take it apart.  What a buzzkill!

Man, don't fix a new reel. Take it back for

credit or replacement.

K. Deal. BPS here I come! Was looking for an excuse to go back there anyway. 

I just need to figure out how to get in and out without the baitmonkey knowing about it!

part of me wants to take it apart to see what went wrong and learn something.  Think I can do that and still be able to return it?  My gut says no.

Go with your gut.

Just another reason to never buy a Quantum.

That's right ~ because Quantums are the only reels that ever have any mechanical problems.

If you take that reel apart and scratch it up anywhere around a screw head, or booger up a screw head to where it shows, and they see it, they'll say YOU screwed it up.  Go with your gut and return it the way it is.

I left it alone :) Its back in the box, which is back in the BPS bag and sitting in the passenger seat of my truck.

Man it sure was a pain getting the line off of it. I improvised and overcame.

Bye Bye Quantum...Hello Curado or Chronarch (or Revo)

This is a good reason why you should examine the reel before buying.
