Why does my baitcaster reel backwards?
the anti reverse bearing on most reels is on the large gear post where the handle attaches (usually covered up by the drag star and reel casing). The biggest thing with these is they get oiled or greased – sometimes by the factory and sometimes by guys just excessively applying oil/grease to anything that moves.

What is anti reverse on a baitcaster?
The anti reverse helps when a fish bites it so when it try to swim the other way there is no pull back on the handle and the drag starts right away.
How do I stop my reel from going backwards?
The anti-reverse on a fishing reel stops it from spinning in the wrong direction. There is usually a switch that can be switched to control this. When you switch the anti-reverse on, it will stop the handle and spool from spinning backwards, thus stopping the line from coming off the spool.
Why does my reel keep spinning?
There are several reasons why your fishing reel is spinning both ways. The most obvious reason is that something is wrong with the anti-reverse, which can be fixed. If it is not that, then it could be the drag is not set right or broken, or something is wrong with the bail.
Why do open face reels have reverse?
Some reels come with an Anti Reverse switch that allows the angler to choose whether it is engaged or not. This feature has helped people “back-reel” rather than allowing the drag to fight the fish. This is an old school technique which can be very effective on smaller fish.
How does instant anti-reverse work?
An instant anti-reverse prevents the rotor from moving backwards instantaneously insuring solid hooksets. Instant anti-reverses use a roller bearing for immediate engagement unlike a multi stop which relies on a series of teeth. The gaps between the teeth of a multi stop result in back play thus delaying hooksets.
What does the anti-reverse switch do?
ANTI-REVERSE SWITCH This feature is typically located at the bottom of the reel and can be a helpful tool when fighting fish. This switch allows you to backreel, or reel in reverse, rather than relying on your drag system for line tension.
