Hi All,
With my daiwa 7ht mag I have managed 145yds on the field and my reel settings were a fair amount of side play and the mag setting on 1 and a half and I had the reel filled to the top and the wind was behind me. When there is no wind I have the setting on 3. Then when I was using my normal 7ht I was getting slightly further than my mag (this was on the same day so same conditions) and in my normal 7ht I have just enough side play, so the spool can move from side to side and one small brake block. So on my 7ht mag would it be better to tighten my side play so theres only just enough and loosen off the mags a bit?
Cheers

I would rely on the magnets to slow things down as they won't wear out-the end plates in the reel will.

to much side play cause the spool to wobble so decreases spool speed hence less distance tighten the spool up untill it only just moves prob less than a mil and see wat happens. should increase distance but thats just how i set up my reels (525 mags) regards roger
