It might be as simple as backing off the drag. I like simple! Also check to see if your spare drag is engaged as shown in the image of the drag engaged and the one not. Worth a try!

Two different reels of mine were noisy because the frames were bent
You had to look very closely to see it, but the spool rubbed in one small area

Default Re: noisy reel

My personal preference would be a reel that's quiet when reeling line in and noisy with line going out. It's a real adrenaline booster when that torpedo makes a long spirited dash and your real is screaming "are you getting this?!" to you... Anyone know what reel does that? BTW, I'd prefer one with easy maintenance like my Lamsons...
