Does any one own an accurate tern 500x that spool makes a scraching noise when they reel? Brand new reel.

Yes, mine did the same thing. Spool shaft came loose from the spool. Call Accurate, send it back for warranty repairs. They did mine pretty quick and it's all good now.

    This will most likely be a warranty issue so feel free to bring it in or mail it in. Have you spooled it and did the issue show after???

    It was loose out of the box with no line. Seems like others are having the same problem.

    I’ve had my tern 500 for 2 years. Only issue I’ve ever had was my knob kept falling off. Took it to Accurate and they fixed the problem right away! Love the customer service they offer🥳

    My accurate reels are a little louder than other reels I have had but I figured that was due to their stainless steel internals and not the softer metals that other companies use. Never was a problem for me. If you think it's an issue hit up accurate!

    “Just “ sent in my reels for service/warranty because of weak drag, been over 10 weeks and should be getting them soon. Hopefully you don’t have to wait that long with a new reel.
