    I've got a 7000 C3 that is giving me problem. With the reel in gear, I can pull line right off the spool like it is in free spool mode. Sometimes it will catch and the drag will engage, but most of the time it just free spools will engaged. Its not the drag washers, they are in good shape and the drag works perfectly when the reel does engage. I have taken my other C3s apart, and I see nothing out of the ordinary that my be suspect. Any one know what the problem might be?

    did you try backing off the right side spool knob and tightening the left side's knob?

    the fork that slides the gear back and forth to engage it may be sticking take the handle side off and push the button and reel a few times and oil.
