James, Nope....been using the same type for about 12 years now with
no problem. My problem is the trigger sometimes won't release. Its
hell when you snap it and it doesn't spin but just goes bang. Have
always been able to manually release it and still got good casts
though. I find the slide is subject to dusk and metal particles and
I have to keep it blown out.
