Default Tica LE200...Any Feedback?

Bought 2 in May. Seemed like a hell of a deal. Have only used one 6-7 times. Broken. Anyone had any experience with this reel or any other made by Tica? Spoke with Tica, they are going to fix it but the shipping is on me!

What broke on it? I fished with a guy once who had one of those, and he said that the lever on the casting button had broken or come loose twice on his in the 3 weeks since he bought it.

I had the Libra spinning reel. The breakaway handles suck on it. The pin kept getting stuck. Others have had the same issue. I think I trashed it or sold it. ~ $60 distributor price. We gave a bunch away here in contests. Wasnt a bad reel, decent drag but not the best quality. Plastic housing, aluminum spool, the newer ones have a titanium bail and rollers.

Something in the casting button mechanism. I was on the phone with Tica, they had me remove the side plate and check a couple of things. I found nothing so they recommended I send it back. They told me that if I dug any further into it, they would not cover anything, so in the mail it goes. Seems like pretty good customer service....we'll see! Probably won't have the reel back for 3 months, who knows. I think from here on in I'll stick with my Calcuttas, they have been bulletproof! (they should be for what you pay!) I guess you get what you pay for though.
