Anti-reverse issues
« on: April 10, 2014, 07:11:47 PM »

Every winter I tear down my reels and clean/relube them all. For some reason this spring I am having issues with a few of my reels. Occasionally, the anti-reverse just does seem to "lock in" and the reel starts winding backwards.

Any idea what causes this to happen (I hope my explanation makes sense)  lo

What kind of anti-reverse does the reel have? Is it a one-way bearing or a clutch type?

The common cause is to much lube. You want a thin coat of iol on casting reel anti reverse clutch and no oil at all on most spinning reel anti reverse.
The next cause is cold temps. In cold temps, the parts shrink just enough that they can slip. My own curado did that to me 2 weeks ago while working a jerkbait. I know my AR clutch is in perfect shap and the right amount of lube, It was just cold at like 33 degrees that morning. In that case, we need to remember to keep our thumb on the spool to help it not slip.

They are one way bearing types.

Now that I think about it, it did seem worse early on the morning last weekend. Morning time temps were in the mid 30's and warmed up to the mid 50's in the afternoon.
When servicing my reels I generally don't do anything with the anti-reverse bearings.

Thanks for the response Pro reel!!

Based on my experience of trying different lubes in all sorts of weather (20-90 degrees) I find grease to work much better than most oils. Depends on the grease though. Something super slick like Reel Saver has too much teflon in it and the IAR will slip like no tomorrow. *Some companies do offer lubes specifically designed for IAR bearings.* Using grease like Hot Sauce, Super Lube, etc has never caused a single slippage issue for me and won't migrate away from the bearing (especially in warm weather) like most oils do.

Also, you may want to disassemble the IAR from time to time for a good cleaning. I think this is an often overlooked step.

Good info. Thanks for your input!!
