tatula ct noise

I have a tatula ct type r , that is rattling when you put tension on the spool. You can tighten the spool tension knob and it kinda goes away..I've replaced the spool bearings and anti reverse bearing. Any suggestions ?

Thank you for your time.

Re: Bantam MGL reviews?

Anyone got a line on the 151 XG in stock for under $300? I will probably be returning mine :shock: the performance just isn't worth the price, there are to many other reels that are more refined at this price point.
