Before you spend any money repairing or shipping, get some decent reel grease from a tackle shop and liberally grease up the roller clutch bearings. Roller clutches have to be kept lubricated, especially if used in saltwater or they freespool. I had one reel that freespooled occasionally when it was new but never freespooled again after one application of grease.
