Hi there, I have a reel and the little metal loop that is used to flip over when you cast has come off at one side, and when I try to put back in it falls out again, Should I try hard bonding glue?
Thanks

The IN2 reels are made to a fairly low spec and don't usually last too long. If you want to fish regularly mate, you really need a better quality reel. Okumas, Daiwas and some of the better quality Shakespeares will last longer but like most things need to be regularly maintained. Right at the moment I have a preference for Daiwas but I do clean and oil them about once every two months.
