Noisy Fishing Reels - Clicking

7 posts in this topic

I have a few older spincast reels that click very loud when you reel them in. Is there a way to fix this as it is very annoying. I think they are just made like this but maybe there is a way to take them apart and fix it? Thanks

Don't know if this helps but I had a reel that would click too. The handle came loose a little and was hitting the spinny thing. Tightend it up and all was good. Hopefully it's that simple.

I have this exact problem. Its in a quantum Snapshot with a trigger. It clicks any time the trigger goes past the rod side. It only clicks when i have the trigger stop activated with that little switch. I have taken thes spool apart and put a little WD on it but no luck. Any Help or ideas that would be much appriciated.

I think some older reels used a gear and spring bar like a boat trailers wench or boat lift for the anti-reverse, most new ones are quiet because they use an anti-reverse bearing instead of a gear. you can pack the old style gear ones with grease to quiet them a little bit, but you will always hear them. I have an old Daiwa and Mitchell "gear-style" that click and I kinda like the click sometimes, it helps me keep a steady retrieve.

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
