Sticking 704 handle

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

Anyone have a clue as to what can be wrong here? I have a 704 that tightened up on me right after landing a 16 lb blue. I took it apart, replaced the inner & outer bushings, replaced the main gear. But when I put the handle on the reel (with the washer) it tightens up on me again. when the handle is off I can freely turn the threaded main shaft and the reel works smooth and easy. Any ideas? I'm stumped.

Probably bent the threads inside the handle. Try a different handle and if it spins freely you have become un-stumped : ) Make sure the anti-reverse isn't on and you're spinning it the wrong way as the crosswind will come off the roller if you're testing with the side plate off.
