Question about Boating
I have the shimano fx 300 spinning reel and flipping the rear lever left or right doesn't engage a lock to prevent the spinning reel from moving when pulling on the fishing line. What do I check on to see if something is misaligned.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

The drag is set by turning the knob which secures the spool to the reel.
To cast, hold the line against the rod with index finger on right hand. Then flip the bail open which frees the line to come off the spool. The bail, when it gets to a certain point will lock open. When casting, release your finger on the line when the rod gets to 11 o'clock.
Flip the bail back by turning the reel handle -- the bail will pop back over the reel -- then you're ready to reel it in.
The bail is the wire-like device on the top of the reel.
There is probably a button/switch for turning anti-reverse on & off -- when on, this keeps the reel from turning backwards when force is applied to the line.
I think those are the highlights.

log onto shimano.com and there you will find manuals for everything they produce, failing that request it from customer support, they are very friendly to deal with
