Avet SX MC Spool Rubbing against the magnets?

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

I was about to spool up a used SX MC I acquired a few weeks ago and noticed that in the FREE position and testing the freespool, i hear a rubbing noise. Took it apart and didn't notice anything out of place compared to another SX MC I have. I haven't fully disassembled the reel, is there something I need to tighten up or loosen(as in the MC knob with the tiny hex key screw)? Thanks.

No sand, thoroughly cleaned it. I've inspected the spool for signs of rubbing against the magnet, no marking as of right now. Will give the bearings a check, thanks.

Drag preset knob could me adjusted incorrectly and all you are hearing is the drag starting to engage.  They are loud in Avets because the drag is bone dry.  Try loosening the preset so it doesn't engage in freespool?
