My bail while casting will sometimes re-close. Donít think itís me not pushing bail over. It reels in fine when bail is closed. A spring problem? Any suggestions or solutions

from what I know about Sustain/Stradic, "lifetime" robust coil spring is least likely to fail
did you get a heavier after-market handle knob?
even a bronze main may need a shim, eventually -- how worn is it?
when was last service?  was grease on main/pinion too light / not enough?

Many thanks. More than willing to take it on Vs sending into Shimano service center. The pictures are perfect.

Ya got a pet octopus?  Grin
Two hands are never enough, but you will get there eventually with patience  Cheesy
Grease holding the spring and ball in the rotor, line everything up with the operating spring/lever combo in its holes in the rotor and the bail arm pivot, then slide the round section of the bail arm over the pivot stud while you compress the spring/lever in the rotor recess/sleeve (keep your third thumb on the spring/sleeve to stop it popping out of the rotor).  Might take a couple of tries but you will train yourself eventually!
cheers
Steve
edit: I just noticed in those photos that the trip lever is laying over in the rotor, it actually points up at 90deg to fit into the hole in the bail arm pivot.

Does the Stella have one of those rubber ring thingies? I.e., the rotor size washer that holds it(rotor) in place when the bail is open during casting?

Like Phil's aftermarket handle.  Sometimes the handle will rotate from the force of the cast and you have to make sure the handle is already pointing forward before casting.
