reel wont engage to wind in line


Depending on the reel it could come apart differently. On a closed face reel you normally turn the top half about 1/4in. and then the top pulls off. On a open faced reel if you look atop the cylinder that the line wraps around there should be a screw on there. Or sometimes the whole top of the cylinder unscrews.

The line constantly comes out of the reel. I just bought it. Have not had an open face reel in years.


Your line is not taking the memory of your reel, therefore coming off trying to come to its original state. You could try braid fishing line, which has no memory, or go down on the pound test of mono filament line your using. First, before buying anything else you should try to tie your string to one of the eyelets and reel in until the line is pretty tight(tight as you can get it), and leave for a couple of days, it will start to take the memory of your reel spool. Hope this helped.
