Does Noise Actually Bother You?

Recommended Posts

I always hear people say how they dont like braid, ceramic bearings, etc due to noise. But does this actually bother you to the point you will not use certain products. To me I absolutley love noise. I think one of the best sounds is setting the hook with braid in heavy cover and it screaming through the guides as you wrench that fish in. Just thinking about that noise get my adrenaline going lol. So its hard for me to see how any one would hate it. So does it actually bother you?

Doesn't bother me in the slightest.  If you think braid is noisy then try flyfishing, it is inherently more noisy that conventional in my opinion when you are throwing the heavier weighted rods and flies.

I have to say that the noise does not bother me one bit, and you are right I kind of like it

Braid noise no, ceramic bearing I don't know as I have never used them, but I can imagine that might bother...

Depends on the amount and what kind. One specific briad I used was awful with noise stopped use of it. The 8 strand I use now wouldnt know I have braid on. Ceramic bearing was borderline but performance gain trumped it plus after extended use it much much less noise now.  Brake noise dont like at all. Gear noise is another no no like the BPS Carbonlite reel.

I fish almost everyday, most of the time from the shore. There is nothing better then fishing a bank and listening to Pandora at the same time. It helps me concentrate on what Im doing. So noise is never a problem for me, I can always mask it out with something I really enjoy.

to echo QUAKENSHAKE,  for me it totally depends on what kind of noise.  There is such a thing as bad sounds and good sounds and I am aware that it totally subjective.  For instance,  I had a Calcutta GTB (8 bearing model) that I benched for a couple of years because it had an annoying little "click" when I retrieved a bait.  Didn't effect the function of the reel I don't think, just didn't like it.   DVT fixed that for me and now it is back in the starting line up.  Any new reel that has any whirr or gear noise to it I won't buy.    I find all clickers and noise makers on reels annoying.  Line related sounds, not so much.  Many Zebco spin cast reels have an annoying sound to them.

 

I've tried listening to music while I was fishing, seems to me like it detracted from the fishing experience.  Music is for driving to & from the lake, at least for me.  I do like listening to ball games on those rare times when I'm on the water when a Royals game is on the radio.

I sold a Legend Xtreme spinning rod because the recoil guides were noisy with nanofil

My partner is removing all his braid and replacing it with floro. He reckons the noise scares the fish. hahaha

Fishing noises don't bother me.  People noises irritate me a lot more.

Braid noise............honestly, I barely notice it. The one noise I can not stand, even more than jet ski's, is the wind in my ear. If it's windy I have to put earbuds in and listen to music or it will drive me off the water.

Equipment noise doesn't bother me, human noise can be very annoying.

I am completely indifferent about braid noise. I don't use braid much, but noise is not the reason. We are all different when it comes to what pushes our buttons. ww2farmer for me the sound of wind is no problem. Earbuds and music would drive me off the water quickly though.

Personally love the sound of braid going through the guides, especially when you're winding in a big'un!

The only noise that bothers me is the chirping sound from a fishfinder is on and I am not catching anything.   :mad5:

The noise that bothers me the most are the airboats.. they just makes me nuts!!

You can here them coming 1/2 mile away.

When those guys wind those things up, its like standing on an airport runway.

I don't use braid very often, but when I do I always get caught a little off guard and think that something is grinding. I am sure if I used it more, I'd get used to it.
