Penn Spin Reel will not lock after casting

We have a 4500SS Penn Spin reel that will not lock after casting. The bale functions properly and clamps into the "locked" postion after casting but the reel continues to free spinv f you do not hold tension on the line. Where is the reel locking mechanism located and how do you adjust it?

On the front of the spool there is a device to turn to set the drag. Torn it tighter and tighten it until slightly below the breaking point of your fishing line. It isn't a critical adjustment, it just keeps your line from breaking while trying to land a fish.

Why is my reel able to reel both directions instead of locking in place?


Sounds like the slider switch didn't get back into it's socket properly, take it back apart and look at that.

How to fix Defiance 25LW that will not cast (or free spool)


Those reels are very simple, nothing too complex about them at all, sounds to me that the clutch gear is stuck not and not releasing when you try to engage it. I've had similar bait caster lock up like that when trying to cast heavier baits, what happens is the spool spins so fast that the inertia and vibration causes the reel to actually engage mid cast slamming the gears together. not good for the gears by the way. more that like the reel needs to be opened up and looked at to resolve the issue. www,darksidereelz.com for all your reel service needs

My penn 950SSm reel doesn't lock out the handle spins backwards and lets out line after casting it and bail is flipped back how do i fix this


Try flipping it forward.. if that doesn't work... there must be a small spring inside broken. Just take it completely apart on a table. once apart look at the bail assembly, u should be able to find the broken piece. Take both broken pieces down to your local hardware store and ask someone for assistance. Someone should be able to help you find a piece very similar.

How do you cast the reel so the spool dosent continue to unwind after the cast


On the side of the reel there is a knob that you adjust for the spooling.As a rule of thumb you adjust it so when you have a lure on,click the release button and let it spool out,it will only drop about 4 feet.Now! tighten it a fraction.Start casting and it will not go very far.Just before the lure hits the water,you put your thumb on the spool.Hard at first and then less as you get used to it.You can then adjust the spooling knob to go a bit further every time.You use your thumb on the spool to adjust the last 10 feet of line.Use a lure with no hooks on it to practise.It's called a plug.Hope this helps and you reel in the big one's

Require a diagram to assemble 330GTI reel. Reel disassembled as drag not functioning properly


Here you go!
330 GTi Schematic
Make sure the drag plates and drag washers go in correctly or the drag will not work very well.
If you are using braided superline, make sure there is monofilament backing under the line otherwise the braided line will slip on the spool arbor, tricking you into thinking the drag is shot.
Best of luck!

Tighten the drag star to expose the black ratch ring. Press the ratchet ring down towards the star drag as you turn the handle backwards to unscrew it from the crank shaft.
