It looks to me that there was some glue that came undone on this brake. Is this something I can put a couple of drops of crazy glue on or something? Will it work right without being glued?

Its an Ardent Edge, a couple of years old or so, but it hasn't seen many casts I'm told.
I bought this off a friend and paid very little for this reel, so I am willing to do a little work on it.

Thanks in advance

NO GLUE Crazy glue and reel internals just dont go together... and from what i can see, that brake needs to be moving freely as possible for it to work properly, might be missing a piece ie clip ect, jst look for a manuel for that reel, search for reel parts, from likes scottsbt.com has alot of diagrams ect

Thanks for the info on the no glue. I don't see a clip in the diagram.


Here's a close up of what looks to me like some sort of adhesive that came loose

Ok thanks. Should I do anything to it at all? It looks dry, should I give a little oil? All I have right now is some reel magic, I plan on getting on of those ardent maintenance kits at some point

The brake you are holding should be attached to and spin with the red spool, are you sure it is not a press fit into the red spool? It should not be allowed to move relative to the spool. Sure looks like either some of it has melted or some sort of adhesive has been on it. Is the spool the same on both ends?

I agree with NCTribute. The brake assembly must turn with the spool. The centrifugal force of the spinning spool forces the brakes (black pieces) out into a brass ring in the side cover slowing the spool. I think that the brake assembly was glued into the spool. It looks like it fits right into a lip on the spool (see picture). I would trim away any old glue of the brake assembly then use some epoxy to attach it back to the spool but use as little as possible to avoid messing with the spool balance.

I haven't taken the spool out yet. Never done it before and want to take my time with it.
If I press it firmly it sticks in there, but as soon I move a tab it falls out.

This is what I was originally thinking about the this device works.
Any particular kind of epoxy?

Thanks everybody for all the info.

If it were my reel I'd rough up the spool and the brake assembly with some fine sandpaper like 600 grit. Don't remove any material just give something for the epoxy to grab onto. As for epoxy type I would think the standard 5-minute stuff would be fine. The brake assembly is not under much force so special epoxy shouldn't be needed. I'd apply a thin film with my fingertip and that's all I'd use.

Once it's in the spool, it will be okay. I can't tell exactly what you are showing in the pics, but the brake clips will stay in place once you get them inside the spool. Just be careful to insure they are on there when you close it up. I have a Shimano that I broke one of the arms that holds a brake clip completely off. It works like a charm.

I've only been able to get out fishing once since I got this reel. What I ended up doing was nothing. It's smooth and casts a mile. I think I'm just going to leave it alone
