I worked great last year but this year its not distributing the line evenly on the spool when i reel in the guide gets stuck and bunches up in one spot . then of course next cast is a horrid backlash ....and idea's on how to fix it or is this reel already in the grave yard.

The worm gear and pawl are dirty and you just need to clean it. Or more likely that the pawl is wore out and not sitting in the worm gear properly. Very common. Pawls are very cheap. Many times they will try to sell you a worm gear also but you most likely do not need it.
