Baitcaster anti-reverse not working



I have an Abu Garcia Ambassadeur C3 (actually, I have three) on which the anti-reverse is not working properly. It is a bit "loose". There is some backwards play in the reel, kind of like those spinning reels that have a four-point or eight-point anti reverse. You know, where it always "backs up" to the stopping point.

I suspect that the anti-reverse bearing is bad. Is that an easy fix, or am I better off just getting a new reel? Where would one even get a bearing to fix it (assuming that is in fact the problem)?

Any one have any insight and can help me out? I hope I described the problem clearly...

The grease in your reel is probably starting to harden up with age and the anti-reverse pawl is sticking open. Clean out the gears apply new grease and the problem should be solved.
