|Sounds like you need to have the discs replaced. Cause could be, either they got smoked (doubtful)or the reel was stored with the drag clamped down (easily done). |
You can look at the Ross site and see what the max. drag should be, if it doesn't approach that(use a scale)then it needs replacing. Check if you can do it or a authorized repair shop is needed or if it needs a trip home to Ross USA.
I had the same problem with a Penn took one trip to the repair shop(no luck) and one trip back to Penn. I had the reel given to me, so a $75 repair charge and I got a basically new Penn made a good deal.
