    I have a BV-300 that is 6months old the last time I took it out if I increase the drag the resistance in the retrieve increased any thoughts.? Sticky drag plates? I always rinse after use lock the drag down and flush.

    Sounds like the pinion bearing is bad. This can occur if you push the drag too high or if some salt has gotten to it.

    Hi Jeff,

    It sounds like you may have an issue with salt. If you are mechanically incline/willing to take the reel apart, give us a call and we can walk you through cleaning out any salt that could be causing your resistance, and if needed, change the bearing. However, if you prefer to send it to us, that is an option as well. If the reel is registered, you qualify for our 2 years of free service so go ahead and fill out this form and send it in!

    And if you have not registered the reel yet, you can do that here: https://www.accuratefishing.com/registration/

    Thanks for fishing Accurate!
