Stainless Stell / Chromium-Plated Guides on Rods

2 posts in this topic

I recently purchased a new 7ft Fenwick HMX rod that will mainly be used for Lindy rigs. However, its seems as though the line sags a little between the guides and sometimes results in tangles around the rod tip in some situations. Anyone out there have the same type of problem as this? What can a guy do to prevent this if it can be prevented at all?

What kind of and size line do you have on it. What is listed on reel for correct line.

Also the way it was spooled on could have caused line to twist alot. I have found long casting in front yard, with weight on end of line has helped me. That, or have some one pull a large amount of line out and reel back up. It should help.

New line seems to twist at first. Just keep fishing and it seems to correct it self.

Good luck!

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
