I normally use my abus, but the one Spinning reel I use for big cats is a Quantum Optix 60. I have caught some good fish on this reel and pair it with a 8' Ugly Stick cat rod. A few weekends ago, my reel wouldn't lock so I figured I might have flipped the switch where I can backreel, but no that wasn't it. I studied it and even took my spool off to see what was up. While reeling it in to change bait, I found a small keeper pin(I think?) in the part that rotates to collect the line. I have no ideal where this thing goes, but I am thinking that is is a keeper that locks the reel and must be near the anti-reverse switch on the bottom of the reel. I am going to take the handle off and take off the side plate. I have a pic of the reel and the keeper pin. If you guys know of any way to fix this I would appreciate it. I dont want to just quit using it and have it collect dust over a small piece and I just do not want to send it to Quantum and wait back and forth.
