slosh20

Post by joss29 »

hi everyone,

i am new to this site and i am after a bit of help.

i have recently purchaced a diawa slosh 20 in preperation for some cod hunting over rough ground during the autumn. I took the reel out the box and ever since i have been a bit confused with the ratchet as it still clicks away when the lever is in off position. is this normal as this would mean the ratchet will click when casting. i have a horrible feeling i am being stupid as it is a very popular reel but any help will be greatly appriciated.

tight lines

joss

The ratchet is not controlled by the lever - the line out alarm is controlled by the button on the left side of the reel - slide up towards you to take theratchet off and slide it down towards the spindle to apply it.
