It was a great reel before it broke.

I got this reel and loved it. Great anti reverse. Silky smooth rotation. Great spool for using braid. Good drag. Sturdy construction.
I couldn’t wait to use it!
So I took it out fishing less than 5 times in total. Worked great!
Then it stopped working correctly! Here’s what happened. I took a cast, reeled it in fine. Took another, and this time the handle wouldn’t turn! Couldn’t believe it. I flipped the drag switch off, and then it started turning, but then it wouldn’t move the spool forward and back, so the line won’t lay correctly.
I think the gears inside must be defective somehow.
I loved the reel, but it shouldn’t break so quickly. I hope KastKing could send me a new one. The new one probably wouldn’t break.
