Hey lads,
need some advise on casting with the abu 7000 bg leaver drag.
Had a situation where the break came on after casting 40 yrds out, how do you overcome this prob, other tips would be welcome.
Please don't state the obvious,(change the make)

I might be wrong, but I thought that was a boat fishing reel, not a caster.

Thank's for your input, is there a knowlagable angler on this forum with more verble ability than the last.Is the 7000 bg soley a boat rod or have i been miss informed?
Other web sites like beachcasting-.com talk in favour of the fact they like level wind drag! have or do you own one? can you help me.

Two things:

1) I am not a native English speaker, but even I can easily count 10 errors in the above post. Seems to me that by doing away the first reply you got as 'a verbal inadequate reply' is not very nice. People will not be very eager to help that way.

2) I own the 7000, the break shouldn't come on when casting. Ever. Either make sure you don't activate it yourself by accident, otherwise have it checked.

Personally the 7000ld narrow is designed for braid use on a boat, me brother has the normal bg7001 hs which is l/h and he never liked it for casting has now bought the new 7001i which is the left hooker but not used yet as bought end of last season.

Yep

It's a boat reel.

You may want to check what you have bought as there really is a big difference between a Level Wind and a Lever Drag and it seems you may have misunderstood.

Finally, wide spool is more comfortable for casting, narrow spool for boat fishing and braid.
