Default Re: Reels locking up

The Abel Trout with its click pawl drag has literally 3 moving parts in the whole reel. Ive never had an issue with mine and I have used it in sub 20 degree weather but not sure what could even go wrong other than dirt or grime. My only suggestion would be to take it apart and clean it, lube the gear, pawl and spring and thats it. Interesting that its happened to both reels, possibly an environmental factor?

Ive beat my galvans to heck with no issues as well.

Do they not have warranty? First place I always go in the manufacturer.

I have never seen this type of issue, even with cheap reels that my buddies used to fish with.
