    Dont know what's up on my bv2-500, the handle is hard to turn compared to my other valiants. If I back the drag off it starts turning easier. Also last time I fished it, it seems the drag would get looser and would have the keep pushing the lever forward. Any help would be appreciated, I'm leaving Thursday for a 2.5 day. Maybe I should just leave it home

    I totally agree, but it wouldn't be done before his trip.

    Hi Shane;
    Sounds like a possible bearing issue as far as the handle being hard to turn. The drag issue you mentioned may be due to a cam track issue. How long have you had the reel? If you are within the two years and the reel is new those things can be fixed for the cost of shipping the reel. Please make sure to go on line with us and register your reel. If you have problems with that, give us a call and one of the girls can register it for you.

    So could be cam track is loose and turning?
    Is there a grove track sets in or a glued or fixed part?
