Only when someone puts their hands on the level wind mechanism and jams it to the point the piece that runs back and forth on the worm gear gets damaged and you lose the ability to level wind. Just tell people to keep there hands off the level wind area and the reels will work for many years. Keep a couple rebuild parts just in case.
