Thanks stu, yes that makes sense if you bend them in it puts more pressure on the clicker arm/pin

having thught about it im pretty sure you bend the arms in towards eachother. the more you bend them in the trickier it is to fit them back but it gets easier with practice.

sorry mate can't remember I sold them on a while back cos of this, bending the springs back only worked for a few months then they had to be done again.

I'm sure someone else will know.

Had the following response from Felindre Innovations

Hi Jamie,

We have them for sale on our ebay site, but they only come as a kit. - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/163205530088

Ordered a few spares for myself.

Thanks - Ive sent an email - hopefully I can get a few spares too.

Swapped over the ones from my spare spools for now - bit fiddly but found it easier to assemble on the top of the screw driver and hold the spool above, so gravity holds the spring and screw and bracket together. You have to be careful as theres also a tiny shim that goes around the screw thread and inside the turns on the spring.

They're called "torsion springs" - tried googling for them to no avail - need a micrometer to measure the thickness of the spring - could probably make one with spring wire too - with a bit of patience

I'll try tacklebox on Monday too - but will probably need to sell a kidney for whatever they knock them out for - you never know though - could be pleasantly surprised LOL

Thanks all, finally got around top opening them up to see whats going on. In my case the spring itself is broken:



I can see from one of my spare spools what it should look like - guessing yours is a different model or revision ?




Does anyone have any details for where you can get these springs from ? ....the Shimano leaflet in the box only has the breakdown for the real and lists the spool as a whole part. I guess I can cannibalise my spare spool but this is a trivial fix for a component that should really be pennies. Agree its a bad design - hopefully I can source the springs from somewhere ?

Will just update to say they clicked hard for a few months before I had to bend them again. Shame cos otherwise great reels but I fish a lot at night and need to hear the click when playing fish. Sold them on.

This works a treat. Reels are clicking hard once again. I've bent the springs back as far as possible so reckon they'll last a fair while before needing doing again.

First one was tricky but it's a 5 minute job once you've got the hang of it.

Great stuff Philippe.

Penn reels nowadays, are a far cry from the quality they used to be. The U.S. Models were decent reels but, Penn, like many other manufacturers, have chosen the economy route.
