question about clearing backlash

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I dont backlash very often anymore, but when I do, instead of picking it out, I use the thumb trick.  Im sure you guys know it.  Hold down the line on spool with thumb and reel iin just a little.  Repeat until tangle is free.  The question I have is if this process can screw up the bearings, washers, and any other internals at all.

Thanks

They only thing to watch out for is damaging the line.  Fluorocarbon doesn't fair well to this treatment.

Good advice.  Luckily I have braid on one and mono on the other.  I rarely ever backlash with the braid, but when I do, its easy to just pick out.  I use the thumb trick mostly with the mono which is the one I tend to get some backlash with every so often.
