i picked one of these reels up a couple of weeks ago and had to return it. it wouldnt even cast out farther than 15 ft.!!! the guy at the store just thought i didnt know how to use it so he put some line on it and tried it on one of the poles in the store and same result for him!!! anyone else have troubles with this reel?

Whats the actuall problem?
My first question is does he actually know what he's doing. With all the new crap that there putting on reels there's no telling what it could be. With that twitchin bar, and the magnetic anti backlash contol bs it could be just a simple setting switch or knob to turn. First thing I would do is read. If its still greek then start with the drag. Losen it all the way out and hit the button (this is with line and a weight on) and see if it will unspools. If so and it just stop mid throw then its usually the internal bearings. Anyhow let us know whats going on.
