Did you oil the centrifugal drum inside the side plate?
I have a marriage license and a fishing license, but I only carry one in my wallet.

BPS Pro Qualifier 2

Although it is still a bit early here, I have been out a few times and wanted to update the BPS Pro Qualifier 2. On the water, I have had far too many over runs and can't seem to find the magic adjustment. It does reel smoothly, but I would not buy a second one. Much prefer my Abu Promax 3's. They are a few bucks more than the BPS 50% off price, but I think worth it.
I do like, however, the Diawa Aird X 6 1/2' medium action rod I mounted it to. It is listed as medium, but seems to be nearly a mh action. Definitely more stiff than my other mediums.

Edit. Well, my ignorance of these reels got me. Not using reels with centrifugal and magnetic brakes much, I completely missed taking another look. Apparently I only had one brake on, or else one clicked off by itself. I adjusted again(3 on-3 off), and wa-lah, I found it a much better set up. So, I revise my above remarks. After a few more trips, I think I will be satisfied with this reel.
