Gears slip or skip when reeling in fish.
POSSIBLE CAUSES AND SOLUTIONS
CAUSE: Pinion gear and/or spool shaft damaged. NOTE: this type of damage may occur with the following conditions:- The spool is engaged before the spool quits turning or before the lure hits the water.- When thumb bar is released in mid-cast while in Flippin' mode.- The drag is set too tight while fishing with Super Line.
SOLUTION: Replace pinion gear and/or spool assembly. NOTE: Use the following tips to avoid conditions that will damage the pinion gear and/or spool shaft:- Do not engage spool before the lure hits the water.- Do not release the thumb bar before the cast has finished (while in Flippin' mode)- Set drag to allow for some line slippage on hooksets when fishing with Super Lines
