I noticed something odd when i was packing today. I was goofing around spinning my avon when I noticed how much better it spun when it was not locked it. I think the drum is rubbing against the main reel, it so slight, but fixing it would make a world of difference. I would have a much better performing centerpin if I fixed it. I am wondering if I could get it sanded down a bit. But I should probably have it done professionally. Then again this could be normal. And yes, this is the first time i ever tried spinning it without it being locked in. So I have been using it for a long time like this The reel is still ok but it would spin amazingly well if I could fix this little problem

Birdman...I would definitely get a professional to do it...these reels are built such that it allows it's different components to work in tandem with a high level of precision. The drum, casing etc have all been machined to a very fine level that the human eye cannot easily distinguish, and if you start sanding it will likely make things worse...wait till steelhead season is done and then take it into someone who can assess what can be done to improve the performance.
