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.

Some may the click to work is an anti reverse.

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.
