I have a Ambassadeur Royal Express that will not engage properly when I begin a retrieve after a cast.If I don`t physically push in as I engage the handle it will spin/turn from a 1/2 to a full turn before it engages.I`ve already lost a few fish because they would strike on the fall before I could get the reel to engage!Thanks for your help,and suggestions on what to look for to cure this problem!

Take it apart and clean it. Pay special attention to the brake plate. (the plate the release mechanism is on) use a little lithuim grease between the chrome release pieces, and the black brake plate. should work like a charm !
