    Is a spinning reel, baitcaster, spincast?

    Sounds like the drag is backed off from the factory to keep the tention off of it while being stored on the shelf. Just tighten it down and see what happens.

    I think the reel is a zebo spincasting reel.

    This post should probably be relocated to a reel section, not sure what it has to do with loopers rigs.

    I don't know what else could be wrong besides the drag being off...not an easy fix anyway.

    I agree with JW on this one. Lock your drag down a bit and it will start picking up the line.
