sl20 problems

Post by celticcatch »

Bought a sl20 as a spare 'rough' reel. Heard they don't come with blocks fitted so I did them, gave it a little oil and filled it with some 20lb ultima. I've only used it off a clean beach (straight through) a few times for flatties and the anti reverse seems to have stopped working. Problem being is..I may just have tightened the screw on the handle a liiiitle too much and now it's rounded so I can't open it to peek inside.

Any one have any words of wisdom? Think maybe I can drill the head out..then drill the shaft..tap it and replace the screw? But then i'm only half way there because of the anti reverse :-/ :(( lol

Thanks in advance

Big thanks to the daiwa team. All sorted now. Hammer+Screwdriver = free screw. Replaced with a new one and managed to fix my anti reverse at the same time. The pawl wasn't sitting right but it's all good now :)
