The thing that slides back and forth on the bar and has the line go through it oon a baitcaster won't slide. I tried oiling it but that didn't work and the only thing that worked is if i push it while moving but cant walk a frog if i push the thing. Do you know how to fix this?
sounds like your line leveler is off gear or the gears are worn. Should be able to open up the reel and see what is going on...just take off one of the sides and pull your spool out and take a look. First look under the line guide and see if the screw at the under side is tight! Thing runs on a worm gearbehind the bar you are seeing.
