    Re: Centre pin line release

    You can still Wallis cast with a line guard I used to do it. Only down side is if you do overrun and get a tangle. A line guard with almost certainty require a pair of scissors to sort out.

    The deep arbour on a speedia is one of the main reasons why I love them.

    Re: Centre pin line release

    I use a speedia reel a fair bit myself. You should not really need a line guard on this reel it is not really nessasary. Work on your technique before you start drilling holes.

    Re: Do pike really bite through line?

    Does the pike actually bite the line or is it simply more of a case the line rubs back and forth catching the teeth and snaps off. I suppose like it does with a big trout ? If I had to guess I would...

    Re: Centre pin line release

    Looking at the way the rods broke it would indicate a fault if the rod was new, but because you have had the rod a few years for me it would suggest its had a sharp impact ,clean break.

    Check your history it's wrong.
    My great great granny tied a knot just like it and probably yours as well.
