I have several some pushing 14 years old and they all are smooth. I don't have a newer version though and like everything else what used to be great is so so now.

Might have had some extra un needed packing grease. If you are un happy with it, return it or exchange it for a new one. OR get a hold of Shimano cust service. It should be smooth, no rough spot.

I love the Sedonas and have many of them. I get them when they are on sale and they have been very good and smooth for me. Always try out the reels in the store. If you just got it and its not smooth take it back and exchange it for a new one.

Otherwise if you cant exchange it for some reason take Dietz's advice.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
