Any chance line is tangled up within reel itself?
Or maybe just a little extra reel gear lube is required inside?

Pretty much every reel manufacturer sells their own brand. Penn, Abu Garcia, Berkeley. I've seen them all. Cabelas even ships a 1/2 ounce tube with their reels.

Sounds as if you are getting good advice - what bait are you letting out? If the bait is small or doesn't have much resistance, initially it could be slow until some of the line is out and adds to the water resistance. Other than that, bring them back for replacement next time you are near a Cabela's store, or have one of the product people take a look at your reels.

There should be a round thumb knob on the side that you can adjust spool tension.

I have heard that for the problem of "slow release" that the use of a little blue pill is often a very BIG help.

Be safe
