skipping with revo sx/stx?

Recommended Posts

Anyone skip their lures with these reels?  What settings to you put your magnets at?  I have 65 powerpro on my SX for frogs and topwater and 15lb copoly on my stx for other baits.  I always get a little bit of overrun on skips if I get them at all without blowing up.

Any tips for these particular reels?  I can skip big baits with my 300+ size round reels ok but not with these "regular" sized reels lol.

thx

Might have some issues with the co-poly but braid is easy to skip with. I crank up the magnets all the way and leave the spool tension so the bait falls very slowly.

ill try crankin the spool tension a bit here and there - i do have the magnets up high but maybe that will help out too.

I'm amazed at anyone who can skip any bait any distance with any baitcaster. For me it's a spinning gear application exclusivly.  I love all my baitcaster set-ups but this is one place they take a backseat.

tough setting the hook with a spinning rod when your skipping a sweet beaver rig or a jig ::)

You will be surprised how easy it is to skip with braid ;)
