Then I found this little marvel :) I've read reviews, watched some videos on YouTube, and read the product reviews here . Lot's of people said it's garbage - that it didn't work, or they got birds nets each casts etc...
I really do not get it ..... Did they bother at all to watch the videos on how to tune, and how to cast with these ?
I literally spent 30 minutes watching some Bass anglers from the US showing how to tune these reels, how to spool them, how to remove backlashes (aka birds' nests), and how to cast, while I was waiting for the delivery.
Once I got the reel delivered,I spooled it with a Guru Pulse 10lb mono, put it on a rod, attached a practice weight (12g - as most of my lures are that size/weight). Fiddled with the settings for about 10 minutes, and started practising casts (different type casts - overhead, backhand, under arm swing etc). I maybe got one or two bigger backlashes when my practise lure has hit an obstacle before landing at target - but that was not a problem, as they were not completely dramatic. And knowing how to remove them, after watching those videos, it took me 2 minutes to be back at casting practice.
Then I practised the fine tuning (with spool tension knob and magnetic break), and I got it just right. Each cast - just perfect not even a slight backlash. I did also practice using my thumb to slow down the reel in the last phase of the lure's flight, and that worked like a charm too !
Generally what I can say is this:
- despite the initial learning curve, and the fact that reels of this type do not have a spool clip to allow you for precise casting (I utilise the clip on my carp reels all the time), I was still able to cast very accurately , to the same spot over and over again.
In fact by the end of the 1h test session - I felt like I've been using baitcasters forever.
- the spool tension knob is a bit difficult to get the right tension, but then - it's a cheap baitcaster, what do you expect. I was however able to compensate it with the magnetic break.
- the drag is well - cheap - but not impossible to set correctly as well, so not a big deal. (It would be if this reel was expensive though).
It is a brilliant entry level baitcaster, that doesn't break your budget. I know for sure that after a while I might buy one of the better models from this line, most likely the Silver Max.
For me this reel is just perfect (lure fishing, with medium/small lures (10 - 15g) ).
BTW. the important part is also what rod are you using (what kind of action etc)... This reel is a low profile reel, so it needs to be used with a casting rod, not a spinning rod.
The rod I'm using with this reel is the Shakespeare Ugly Stick GX2 caster rod (not the spinning one), Medium 6'6" (1/4-5/8 ounce (which is roughly 7g - 21g) lure weight )
Loads of birdsnests
Multiplier reels should be fished on top of the rod, unlike fixed spool reels.
