Hi All,


Newly into fishing, and I'm having trouble with my Penn Battle II 4000 reel.


I have spooled it with 30lb braid, however it only reels when there is no tension on the line. Also when I pull the line it just takes line


I attached the end of the line to something and it just make a Zzzing sound and doesnt reel in.


So it obviously not catching? is there a switch I'm missing?


If you could let me know any solutions or suggestions please

Tighten the drag knob that is in front of the spool.. I can see that you are new to fishing so when you go to the waters edge and you see other fishermen or fisherwomen ask plenty of question... Follow SOL and learn as much as you can..  I'm also surprise that no one in the last 7 hours answered your question..

I would suggest tighten the drag. Also you might not have put the braid on correctly. Braid slips on the spool if you don't put tape on it or add monofilament backing to it.
