Default Van Staal VR50 Stripped Gears

After being in love with my Van Staal Vr50 since April, I was dismayed that it puked on me 3 days into False Albacore season this fall. Can feel the gears stripping out. Of course, I'll send it back but has anybody else had this trouble? My other VRs and VS reels have never treated me this way.

Yep same issue. I took mine into the local van staal repair shop and they said the side plate was loose which is tightened with some proprietary tool from factory. Not my fault that it failed so they fixed it for free
