I got this reel and it worked fine at first but then after a while I noticed that when the reels closed I reel my lure to the top, and then stop reeling, my lure falls an inch and then stops. It does this every time I stop reeling. I don't know why it does this

Good reel... but help needed!
This is a grood reel... I wanted to give it some more power for flipping and pitching heavy cover - so I bought the extended bent handle and large EVA knobs from the Revo shop (which are supposed to be compatible with Max 2nd generation). The extended handle installed perfectly. However, when time came to remove the knobs from the old handle (Which is required in order to install the new knobs) I removed the knob caps and it's not possible for me to unscrew the knobs because there isn't a Phillips head as indicated in the Youtube video. Instead it is smooth metal. I have no idea what to do.

No instructions!! Obviously not for 1st time bait casters!!
Went on father/son fishing trip in the mountains!! Gave my son my old real & pole, bought the silver max2 cause i thought trying something new would be fun, been fishing my whole life & I can read so never even thought it would be a problem..well it was...No Instructions!! Strung it up, hit the button once to cast & it went into a "neutral" and unstrung the whole real!! Yeah haha, right? Not really, I was done...I had no phone service to look up any instructions & now that I do I can still find none worth a darn...really? No Instructions on a bait caster???
Never again Abu Garcia!!

Fun while it lasted
I have had this reel for less then a year, and for most of this time the lakes have been frozen. After my first five trips this year the thumb bar no longer engages or reengages smoothly, and the flipping setting is not even close to working. I knew it was a cheap reel when I bought it...but frying after less than 6 months of use?
