    Got this last week. Great reel. Only question I have is the push button to release the reel. I find it hard to push in. If I roll the reel back with my thumb it pushes in easier.

    Is this normal?

    You need NO tension on the line for the button to push in easily. The TC is a GREAT reel.

    I've noticed this as well, even with just a little tension. I love the push-button; I don't ever want to go back to the thumb-bar button.
