Hi guys
I had a cheap club Korum feeder kit I have used and I enjoy feeder fishing but the reel with the set is poor and tends to tangle a lot.
Can anyone recommend a good starter set up for feeder fishing , rod and reel that would be an improvement without costing a fortune at this stage ?

Try changing the line on the reel first - it may solve you issue.
2320 meters of daiwa sensor 6lb = £8.99
If not you have line for new reel ready to go ?

Pre spooled reels are usually spooled by machines with the line tight, so once you start to use it, the line will fall off the spool as it will be overfilled, and cause issues. As mentioned, re spooling with a better quality line to the correct level may improve things.

If different line doesn't work, keep an eye out for a used reel on here, it doesn't have to be new. A quality used reel, stripped down and regreased/serviced can be like new and it's not that hard to do.
