Zillion TW 1516XXHL grinding feel

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Zillion TW 1516XXHL grinding feel

Postby surge » Wed Aug 22, 2018 11:43 am

I’ve spent several hours exchanging parts from another Zillion trying to figure out what causes grinding feel for about 1/3 of a turn of a handle.

When I hold the reel normally in hand and crank then there is grinding.

When I turn the reel upside down (reel foot facing sky) and crank then there is no grinding.

At first I suspected the gears but when I fix the spool and crank the grinding is still there. Just little less pronounced.

Any ideas?
