Stradic Spool Play/Loose? (Video)

purchased this reel as mint on ebay from a reputable seller and when i unboxed it i noticed it has spool play that my spheros does not. I tried both spools the original and the spare and it is the same. Drag seems good as well as the reel being smooth just noticed it has a lot of play. Is it ok? or should I send it back.. Thanks

    not normal. since those are getting hard to find I'd keep it and fix it..looks like to me the anti reverse bearing might be in upside down. it's not a hard reel to repair. take it apart and put it back together , take pics if needed.

    Yikes, was the box sealed? I agree with John. Pull the schematics out and see if you can see anything wrong or if you don't want to deal with the hassle return it.
