can some body please help with some hints and tips on using a multiplier thanks
yup , cant argue with that tyn ,Tips from someone who has recently converted (on the second attempt - the first ended in tears).
1. If you have a 'fast' reel e.g. a 6500 Rocket, get it slowed down first with bigger brake blocks and thicker oil - the shop that sells you the reel should do this for free if they are half decent. Better still, pay the extra £20 or so for the mag version - they are far more 'user friendly' and you don't need to re-tune it as you improve.
2. Make sure your rod is up to the mark - As you are looking for a slower smoother style, the rod needs to compress properly. I had endless problems until I used a softer rod.
3. The more weight the better - it is actually easier to cast 6oz than 4oz, it compresses the rod better and flies through the air better.
4. Start learning with your back to the wind - casting into wind also encourages birdsnests.
I take it the reel is boss then ?................. :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:ignore claims that mags prevent birdys , and whatever reel you choose expect line loss to begin with ,dont let this put you off its normal a multi is an unforgiving bugger but a fantastic bit of kit once it knows who is boss
could not put it better my self! beuty in simplicity! andexpect line loss to begin with ,dont let this put you off its normal a multi is an unforgiving bugger but a fantastic bit of kit once it knows who is boss
i agree with that in principle, but i do think that a beginner would soon pick up a multi (non lw) pretty quickly,i think for a beginner too use a multipier ,
i would personally go for a level wind multi, they are not crap and will get you into the way off using one,without he added hassle off trying too lay the line evenly while reeling in.
a level wind helps too eliminate nests/birdies. or whatever due too the even line on the spool.
then i think with more experience get a multi without a level wind.
just my thought.
all the best
