Question about Boating

1 Answer

I have an Alvey 725C deep sea fishing reel which will not now lock into the stop position. A small wire like spring was found on the floor of the boat so I assume it came from inside the reel, but I don't seem to be able to refit it. Can you help.

Perhaps this may be of assistance. The spring may be broken and need replacing, match it to the diagram and work it out from there.,%20655C52,725C52,925C52.pdf

Where is the bail spring located

There is a company that has schematics for many reels.


make model schematic

In fact, I think I found it. Mike repairs and supplies parts.

The bail spring is either external as part of the bail arm mounting, or inside after removing the spool.

Reel bought new w/ no box at a fish show. locking up w/ a small load on reel, does fine w/out load

You can strip it down and see what is moving about in there to make it lock up. Or, you can contact the maker direct.

I have a Ryobi spinning reel SX4N,in excellent shape. Ineed to know how the springs go onthe bail to makr it work. Thanks

With the new line threaded through all of the fishing rod's eyelets, open the bail. You open the bail by pulling it over across the spool, until it locks in an open position. Tie the line in a knot around the reel's spool, and loosely wrap the line around the spool at least 7 to 8 times, then pull slowly on the line, to tighten the line that is wrapped around the spool.
Holding the box or spool of fishing line between your feet, so that it will remain close to you, start reeling in your casting rod. When you start reeling it in, the bail automatically closes, and makes the line wrap onto the spool properly. Reel the new line in until the spool is about 75% full, or to the lines marked inside the reel's spool. Cut the new line about 8 feet from the outer-most eyelet of your fishing rod.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I have a shakespear alpha fishing reel which rotates both ways and deoes not lock

The switch is the on/off anti reverse switch. It is the switch (probably the only one) on the reel at the base. When the reel is in the upright position, look at the bottom/rear area. That little level controls the reverse. Good fishing...
