I've got a Curado that I've had for the better part of 7 years. It gets heavy use and I tear it down after every 2-3 wadefishing trips. I bought a back up last year (love the reel).

Last couple of times I've gone out with the old reel the spool will not engaged after casting. The worm shaft does turn just not the spool. if I rotate the rod 90 degrees counterclockwise it kicks in. I've torn down the reel and reassembled, but the problem continues.

Have I finally worn out the brass gears in the reel? Any help would be appreciated.

BNT1465 Clutch Pawl Springs get weak and cause this symptom. Also, the hole in the BNT 1503 Clutch Pawl will corrode out and if it gets too big, it won't work properly. Replace both, they are less than $5 from Shimano and they don't charge shipping,
