Thanks for the reply and input. I am still unclear on what I did to cause it to seize up. One thought is that maybe some tippet got under the spool somehow...?

The Rogue 2 is still my favorite reel and I love the craftsmanship of the design.

My main worry and anxiety was from the initial quote of $100 to get it repaired after only two-years of use. Also; the fact that I could not discern any difference in its use from my other reels.-most less inferior and still working fine.

I still support Bauer and I will continue to look at their reels. I have been looking for a nice Rogue 4-5 for some big boy hunting on the clinch.
