Hardy Marquis Problem
The reel is the old 8/9 Trout/Grilse model.
It has gone into free spool after I laid it on sand, stupid i know.. has anyone got any ideas on how to fix it.
I've already opened it up and washed it out. This was done immediately. The inner components are all still there but the teeth just don't seem to be catching on the cog anymore.Ye Cannae help bein' a wee bit grumpy, No if ye was jist born crabbit

You have me baffled FP, is the spool definitely all the way home? You'd imagine if the pawl is seated with the pointed end up towards the teeth and if the spool is all the way home so that the pawl had to engage with it then it couldn't be in free wheel , will go out and have a look at mine and see if I can think of anything

Thanks Irish Salar.
Kenny, I've left the reel behind at the fishing base but will be back down again on Saturday so if what Jay gee suggested isn't the problem I'll post a pic then.
Cheers guys for the helpYe Cannae help bein' a wee bit grumpy, No if ye was jist born crabbit

Searched the internet for a new spool and got one.
Last season was about to dump the old spool when i decided to put a drop of superglue on cog/spindle joint- its working fine since - now why didnt i think of that before.....
