spinning reel repair and upgrades

billyyyyy
hi i just recently got a shimano nexave. However, when i cast with some strength to get the distance, the bail seems to trip very often. i have watched a vid on utube and it says the bail on the nexave trips esp so when casting a heavy load.

shld i upgrade the bail spring? if so where can i have it upgraded? or are there btr solutions?

also, even though there arent any damages on the rod guide and no fish has ran to any obstacle, the line on my shimano nexave constantly gets frayed. im not sure but seems like the fraying happens when i retrieve. 

is it possible that the line isnt in line with the roller on the reel hence it gets frayed? 

i plan on switching frm 10lb to 6lb and im afraid that the line will get more prone to abrasions cos of this.

shld i just send the reel back to shimano? 

rly noob here wld be rly grateful fr some help and tips

    Billy,
    What you have is a CRACKED Ring guide. What is causing the frayed line is this cracked ceramic ring guide that is fraying your line everytime to cast and retreive your line bacvk. Go check your line guide closely. replace that line guide once you have identified the damgaed line guide. hope this has been helpful to you.

    ​Check by running a stocking thru the guides.  It will catch if there is a crack or damage.
