Okuma anti-reverse failure?
Posted October 10 2005 - 09:29 AM
While fishing yesterday morning (North Shore, LI)the anti-reverse became intermitten, fine one minute gone the next. The reel was not submerged in the surf just a little spray and light rain on it, if that has anything to do with it. Or could it be an internal component failure of some kind?
Aside from breaking the reel down to inspect it, what should I do?
Any help or comments would greatly be appreciated. thanks

Had the reel inside house overnight to "dry out" seems to have helped because anti-reverse is now working, go figure. Thats why I thought it might be a water or moisture issue, probably water is mixing with the grease/lube inside the reel causing slippage.
It's an Okuma not a Van Staal, right.
we will monitor the situation and bring it in if things do not change for the better.
