Update on my Guideline Halo. Nice looking reel but I've now had two that have failed. Both after less than a days fishing. Both with the same thing, it feels like the gears have stripped inside the spindle mechanism. Very disappointed with a £200 reel lasting a matter of hours. There is also a small silicone O-ring on the spool bolt that has broken on both reels and the other one they had in the shop. Obviously a design fault and possibly where water is then getting into the mechanism, although I don't think the two are related as it's packed with grease, so I think just rubbish parts. Anyone else has got a Halo reel or heard of problems? Now were in tier 4 it'll have to wait till John Norris is open again before I can get refund.
