SOURCE: Penn Spin Reel will not lock after casting

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.

My reel wont lock


There are only a few things it can be, either the gear that kicks the kick lever back is not seated correctly or there is an issue with the kick lever itself, email if you would like it repaired [email protected] names Neil

Does not flip arm to lock to reel in line


Normally when you **** the bail, the reel allows you to discharge the line with a flip of the wrist. Then when you touch the crank and execute half a turn it releases the bail to lock the line and allow you to reel in. If this action is not happening, then the release pawl is stuck and holding the bail in place. You must disassemble the reel, clean the parts and re-assemble with proper lubrication. Checking the parts for wear replace all worn parts.

What is the lever at the back of a spinning reel for?Its located at the back on top


The lever on the back of spinning reels is an anti reverse lock. It is used to prevent the reel from being able to wind backwards or for allowing it to depending on the position it's in.
