    Just need to rant and vent some steam... I bought a new reel a week ago and it worked great until friday night i made a nice cast and heard a clunk in the reel and the thing wouldnt reel the line back in so I jimmy rigged it so i could reel the line in. It worked for a couple hours when i took my little brother out today then the damn thing wouldnt cast. Granted it was only a 20 dollar south bend reel but come on, the catfish ive caught up here arent much bigger than 5lbs so i didnt figure i needed something to fancy... guess i was wrong.

    Take it back.
    If they won't give you a new reel for it get hold of South Bend customer service.
    I bought a shakespear rod and reel from a buddy. The reel was broken. I called Shakespear and they sent me parts for it and it didn't cost me a thing.
    South bend has been making reels for a long time.They know the value of a satisfied/dis satisfied customer.

    Have a good one and welcome to the BOC

    Great advice right there if you can't return it to the original store you might want to let South Bend know that as well :wink:

    Good luck!
