  1. I just came back from Yankee Capts Pulley Ridge LITE trip, which consists of fishing in 300-400 feet of water using 10 oz to 20 oz sinkers. I made it through the first day and a half with Shimano Talica 16 II and caught a lot of fish. At one point, I got stuck on the bottom and lost the bottom rig. I was tired by then and switched to my backup combo so that I didn't have to rig up again. I also wanted to test out my new star drag reel. I pulled up a fish or two and at one point, I hooked a fish, but the knob became wobbly and came off. I ended up pulling the fish up (Yelloweye snapper) without the handle and it was a PIA. I spoke to some folks after the trip and I wasn't alone. There was someone who had a Tern on the last trip with Yankee Capt, the handle came off and he said he just threw the reel in the trashcan. A couple of others chimed in who said Tern is no good. I took a glance at the screw when it came out and didn't see any signs of Loctite on it. Wondering if it's quality control issue or it's by design. At this point, I think I have 3 options: Send the reel in for warranty service (The clicker is also very stiff and hard to disengage, especially compared to other reels) Unscrew the knob, apply Loctite and just continue using the reel to see what other problems pop up Remove the knob and find an alternate knob altogether Does anyone else have Tern 2? Any issues with the reel? I had high hopes for Gen 2! Video:
