My rod and reel came in today

Recommended Posts

My order just arrived in the mail. Unfortunately I ordered the wrong rod, so I immediately contacted J&H and they said ship it back and they would exchange it for the correct rod. So soon as it arrived today I got it from the mail lady and took it straight back to the post office to have it shipped back.

As far as the reel, I had it spooled by J&H with 30lb PowerPro Spectra Hi-Vis Yellow braided line, this thing is so smooth and nice. They even sent me a free reel cover, which I thought was awesome of them. Will definitely buy from them in the future.

 

Sorta feel like a kid in a candy store as this is really the first nice reel I've owned and I been fishing ever since I was able to hold a rod and just turned 33 this year.

Congrats on your new combo. 

Just a heads up but if you have some troubles with the line then take some off. It's kinda hard to tell from the pic but it appears to be slightly overspooled. My reel states in the paper to not spool it as full if using braid and not mono.

X2.  Congrats on the new combo, and as rippin said, the spool looks to be overfilled.  I fill baitcast reels to the spool lip....spinning reels, no.

If it casts fine, then forgettaboutit.  :)

Yea, it does have rings on the spool for the line, when I contacted them about the spooling, since the specs on the reel said 200 yards of 30lb braid, and their only options for spooling my reel was up to 150 yards or up to 300 yards, so I selected the 300 yard option. They said they fill the reels up, so if it casts weird then I'll def. remove some of the line. I appreciate the observation, the spool is filled all the way to just barely touching the lip.

 

Will have to wait until my rod comes back in since I shipped the new rod back to them today. Still excited about having the reel tho, and really glad I went with the 4500, as it's a perfect size for me, I even believe a 5000 or the 6500 would still been fine size.
