Cannon mag 10 help

Recommended Posts

I have an older mag 10. The problem I am having is that it retrieves very slow and often have to help the spool along by hand to raise ball. I think maybe the motor is going. I had a similar issue with another one of my mag 10 and swapped motor from another and worked fine. Looking for any help or suggestions since a new motor pricey. Oh yea I am using 16lb torpedo weights and heard the older cannons don't like the heavier loads.

I think the 16 lb weight may be the origin of your problem. Those older models were rated for a maximum of 10 lbs so my hunch is that it has placed a continuous strain on the motor and it may i fact be failing but also you may want to try out a 10 lb weight on it and see if it is merely the 16 lbs itself that is the problem. They are slow regardless of weight :) though.

That's what I thought .I will try a 10 lb weight. It's hard fishing deeper than 80' with light weight and not getting a ton of blow back. Maybe I should start saving my penny's for a couple of scottys

 Just had the same problem with one of my older Mag 10's never used heavier  than a 10lb ball, thought for sure it was the motor going bad, sent it to screwey louies  turns out the wiring was bad they put on a new power cord now it works great.

Just want to give you guys an update. I pulled the motor apart and it was gummed up with black soot. Cleaned everything up and did inspection brushes and everything looked good so reassembled and put it back on rigger. Back in business!
