Daiwa spool tension problem

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

As far as I could tell there was no dimpling or any signs of unusual wear. I have been using this reel for quite some time without a problem. The pinion shaft was fine, no signs of wear in the CCC, I thought for sure I would see the spacers in a cup shape, but they were flat. I'm not a reel tech, so i will find out if the fix works next time out.

My original ZLN TWS spacer was brass(or copper??) And the replacement I ordered was a harder carbon material.

Long story short, found 2 loose screws in the handle side plate. Spool tension is back to normal. Needless to say Mr. Screwdriver and I went on the hunt, found 2 more reels with screws that needed a touch up.
