Uneven Line Lay - Calcutta 400b


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have a Calcutta 400b that I've just spooled up that is laying line unevenly (too much line on the left of the spool)... no, not the one I got from you GregL - that one's perfect... :biggrin2:

Any thoughts on how I can sort this out other than the obvious (return to Shimano; guide a little more line to the right with a bit of judicious thumb pressure)? :(

The rod's guides are perfectly aligned... I used the same rod to spool both calcuttas. Both spooled with the same 30lb Platypus Jigging Braid. Is there any way of adjusting the spool or level wind?? Never had a baitcaster not lay line evenly before.

I know I can sort it out with thumb pressure when I retrieve line but it's bugging me.

Cheers, Slinky
