How To: Fix a Broken Anti-Reverse on a Spinning Reel

In this video I show you two types of common issues that result in the anti-reverse failing on your spinning reel and how to repair both. I hope this was helpful!

And if anyone can tell me why this option even exists on our reels comment below and let me know.

    I have a '94 Quantum QG70 reverse drag reel with this same issue. Got the side plate off but didn't have the huevos to remove the main shaft for fear of a bunch of parts dropping out. Can you make a vid like this on a reverse drag reel?

    Instead of using a pen spring cut a piece off and make it straight and make 2 small circles so it looks like this 0_0 then put in on and works better then the spring.

    thanks. yea i don't have many prob with them but the anti on the back side if the reel i do. I'm fighting with one now it worked i took apart to greese omg they sold me wrong stuff it was so thick. i have to take apart clean the best i could and sprayed lithium grease inside to fix. took a while being i had no cleaner to get old greese out but charcoal lighter fluid it worked with some stuff a guy had for greese. but i got the reverse kinda fixed. it had 3 settings. stop or stops back at the trigger spot or not at all. well only 2 work. I'll try to fix again later. but it's a brim reel i ain't to worried. but good video thanks god bless
