Yes that's what I meant mate, I know they are hard at times and is an art to get them flying.

Wow that is some collection though, really nice
I think there are about 12 reels of varying size & type sculling around, plus a few really old antique ones somewhere in the loft!

Time for more coffee then better get organised to throw a bit line line on this wee beastie!

I think there's one in the loft a little like this: (about 3" diameter)

I assume you mean a multiplier reel Lord Muki? The answer is no - not for shore fishing. I've got a lovely little USA baitcasting reel that I acquired, and I tried it on a Lure Rod, but got a Bird's nest every other cast. I'm the same with Multipliers - just no good with them. I've got 2 small ones with level wind which I have used for boat fishing, and one without that I inherited from my Father, and it resembles the winch on the front of a boat trailer - it must be about 5" in diameter! Same with Braid - just can't get on with it. I spooled my last new reel up with 25Lb Braid, and I was getting wind knots every other cast halfway between the Rod tip & end tackle. Tried all sorts of remedies, but no change, so back to Mono.
Stick to Crab Lines far easier for you.:)

Center pins probably worth more than you?
Poor fixed spools are often the issues with braid cause line twist etc

Don't remember that. Was it a Boat thing? Bought some ASSO ultracast yesterday - going to throw that at the new reel later & see how that goes!

Why ? .......... kin'ell, the pixies are real dinosaurs :ROFLMAO: ............ I bet you still use solid glass rods as well .............

All my reels are load with 30lb braid apart from the 4 big fin-nor's which have 80lb braid ..............

Without braid, I wouldn't be able to slow jig over the wrecks or feel those tiny bites when gilling ............... also I can fish in 200ft with 8oz of lead.

With mono, there is about 3ft of stretch when you are fishing at 200ft .....................

The only thing I have to do is be mindful to keep the braid away from the tubes when playing a fish or snagged, because it will cut through ribber like a cheese wire .........:cautious:

Sorry mike, I have been reading the whole thread,
Was going to put up a report ,but seems its been taken over
firstly I take your question as one to get people's thoughts, with out your question there is a huge amount of info in there. Granted it's over run, but it's great info, not people knocking each other.

If it was me , I would have opened a proper thread to do my report any way .

Which I hope you do, as I was looking forward to seeing how you got on.

Sorry again , and tight lines

Please do post a fresh report thread Mike?

It’s kind of the nature of forums that once the main topic is exhausted things wander on to other subjects and a bit of banter.

People tend not to do that on report threads, or at least, not as much, unless they know each other...
