Curado 201D problem -- is this of concern?

Recommended Posts

I was out fishing a few weeks ago with my usually-reliable Curado 201D, and upon casting, I went to engage the spool and heard the typical "click", but when I went to reel in, the spool wasn't turning -- it was like the handle didn't engage the spool 100%. I heard a grinding noise, the spool was reversing (as the lure was sinking, pulling out more line), and I was wondering -- what the....?!?!

I removed the sideplate, jiggled the spool and braking area a bit, replaced the sideplate, disengaged and re-engaged the spool, and everything was fine again.

Should I be worried? What might have happened to cause this? I last had the reel apart about 6 weeks ago to do some minor cleaning and lubrication (just the basic worm gear, spool, and the other easily-accessible bearings).

Thanks for any help you can provide!
