I wish there was something to be done about the Yellow caps on the spool adjuster to prevent them from coming off.  They seem to always get lost.  I always thought it was someone elses mismanagement until it happened to me.  I need to send two reels in for this and maintenance.

I am sorry I am not sure what you are referring to with "yellow cap".  Which reel is giving you trouble?

Torques and fathoms.  The caps for the spindle adjuster.

There is a little spring inside the cap (26D), overtime the ears compress and will result in less tension being applied.  To fix this just bend the ears out slightly more to give for more resistance.  Also the O-ring (120) helps the cap from backing out but like most rubber parts needs to be replaced occasionally.

The biggest problem is the caps themselves pop off and you just look down while fishing and the gold cap is gone.  I've had this happen afew time.  I also lost the lever to the paw mechanims on a torque 12.

I packed them up and sent them in for service yesterday.  I also put in a note to change the versa gear for 5:1 or whatever is supported.  Penn has been excellent with service.  I hope they can be sent back before the season is finished.
