    Hey Folks,

    I recently purchased a 9000i and I like the reel alot. The only feature that I don't like on it is That when I use the bait clicker, the reel doesn't automatically lock when you start to reel. My question is "is it supposed to work this way or do I have a faulty reel?" This is my first 9000 series and I know the 7000 series don't work this way. Any knowledge you can relay will be much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Leftenant

    Yep it is working fine. You will find on your better reels and bigger reels you have to manually engage the reel.

    The Abu 9000i will work good for catfishing.

    Its the design of the reel. The old 9000 and 10000 engages like usual abu though. 8000 too. Its fine. :big_smile:
