Ok this is getting rediculous. I have a Curado CU-200 and it has been squeeling on some of my casts. It is an annoying sound. So I have 2 different times taken it all apart and cleaned the bearings and oiled them up sparingly and put it back together. It works like it should for a couple outings then it starts it all over again.

Also, the anti reverse slips on me at times. It hurts too because the handle smacks me in the one of the fingers. It of course happens on hook sets haha.

What can I do to fix this problem? Any advise?

Thanks.

I would either take it to someone who is certified to fix reels or just go out and surrender to the baitmonkey!!! LOL

Other than that I just don't know???

For the reverse spin, change the roller clutch bearing. Check the roller clutch inner tube and key washer for slippage. Don't oil the clutch bearing too much if any, it will cause it to slip. (That may be what happened).. This has happened with my Curados, that seemed to fix it.

HOT SAUCE

quantum hot sauce, like 1.95 at any gander mountain.. get a bit, take out the right panel of the reel, lubricate and then re cast 5-6 times...


enjoy

Although I may have been fishing forever, my reels are serviced once a year by a professional and I just keep them clean and oiled. Break Free CLP is a very good reel lubricant. Most problems occur when people use WD-40 solvent or "water displacement" for a lubricant, which it is not!

Thanks guys for the ideas. I have heard about Hot Sauce before but never tried it. I will get some and see if that makes a difference.

Keith, It will cost you somewhere between $7 to $15 to have your reel serviced and the line changed, do it!!

ps; Break Free in my opinion is far superior to Hot Sauce and is available in 1 1/2 oz pump bottle that you can keep in your boat. http;//www.break-free.com/
