Help with BFR Modula spool slippage

Greetings from Australia.

I recently purchased a Brittish Fly Reels (BFR) Modula 95 for use on light salty fish. Well the reel looks nice and I like the idea of the modular spools however I have run into a problem. The spool slips inside the body. By design the spool locks into the handle frame but there is a little play and it is enough for it to slip free with a minimum of pressure put on the line. (not good when catching anything bigger than a goldfish) Anybody else have this problem? BTW it is new and never used I discovered this when filling the reel for the first time. It is basically useless as is. Any ideas? Anyone have one of these reels and experienced the same prob?
