I have a MXJ 5.8 that is 10 years old and every time I use it to fish live bait I have problems with the line overrunning and causing a backlash. This not a thumb problem because I have a SX Raptor and I have zero problems. I have lent this reel out and he had the same problems. I have tried multiple different lines with the same problem I read a post on here from someone that said the earlier models had heavier spools and that is what caused them to do this so I ordered a new spool. The picture shows the spools with the new one on the left with the smaller drag washer and the spool weighs 1 gram less. It doesn't seem like this is enough to cause a problem but I don't know for sure. When I bought this I used straight mono and I don't remember that it did this or I would have gotten rid of it and it seems to only have started to do this when I started to use braid. Any ideas or suggestions? What spool should I use. I really like the reel but If I can't figure this out I am getting rid of it.
