Baitcast problem. Line breaking while casting.

Recommended Posts

When I got back into fishing a few years ago I got my first baitcaster. It was a Daiwa Samarai, cheap but was great to learn on. With the Daiwa I experienced a few backlashes early on but have not got it dialed in.  Last year I bought a used BPS Rick Clunn and have had trouble with backlashes and occasionly breaking the line in many places while casting. I have tried a few different settings but can't seem to stay clear of the line breaking or backlashes. Any help or insight would be appreciated. Thanks

Been usind either 10 or 12lb Berkley Trilene XL. Works fine with my other reels.

I suspect the line is breaking at weak spots that are created

by backlash. They appear as kinks in the line. All line with

these spots need to be cut and thrown away.

Thanks. The line is breaking in the spool, I guess I am just having a terrible time setting the reel up to where I don't get backlashes.

Pull out enough line for a typical cast, and then another 10 feet or so.  Then tape the spool and reel up the line.  Now your back lash won't ruin the whole spool while you're learning.
