A liner, about four hours ago...
- Jul 4, 2018
So I read in the Angling Times (first mistake) that it is a great idea to tuck a short length of Powergum under the line clip, leave about two half inch lengths on the spool and wind on the line. This apparently makes a lovely safe mod to the line clip. I dutifully converted nine reels (second mistake). I'm sure you can see what's coming! First trip out, line regularly falls out from the clip on each setup that I used. I therefore spent another afternoon taking all the Powergum out of each reel. I know, I know..... try it out on one rod first...... Maybe others have had more luck with this but I found it completely useless and I'm back to standard clips, which work just fine.
