I have used this reel for years on trout and the line lay has always been bad.  it builds up at the base of the spool.  I am 100% sure that the spool is mounted correctly.  and thoughts?  thanks!

there are no shims, unfortunately.

There should at least one washer under the spool it's part of your drag system, have you taken the reel apart? bail arm bent? if all looks well you could add a shim or two under the rotor that will bring your line roller higher up and move line lay away from the bottom of the spool.

l have the same reel line lay is good simple reel check your's reel over again.

Good luck
