Steez SV TW bent stabilizer bar

This part is supposed to be straight right? Just noticed that mine is slightly bent out of shape. I would think I did the damage trying to break a snag free and the line made contact with it ](*,)

It should be an easy fix. Just take it out and make it straight.

Sounds difficult to bent it out of shape though. Hope you aren't passing the line under the stabilised bar.

No, the line was passed over it. I put a half spool of line on the stock spool to try my hand at casting an 8 gram tube. It would seem that the line made contact with the stabilizer bar when the spool was low fill. The bar appears to have slightly bent downward with a slight bow and this was done trying to break 8lb sniper! I will attempt to straighten it out over the winter when I break it down and clean it.
