Been doing long overdue gear maintenance, and was replacing the tip lights.
Just curious where does everybody mounts theirs?
I use to put mine halfway below the second to top guide, with the light facing down. This time I decided to put them below the 3rd guide. Main reasons, the guides are slightly further from the rod so reduces the chance of it being line wrapped.27/09/2010 at 5:19 am #16055yellowfinParticipant
mine are between the 2nd and 3rd guide i think. always take it off prior to casting and have not had any problems with it getting wrapped27/09/2010 at 6:39 am #16056
I wrapped mine on with electrical tape so difficult to move. Can not really remember what situation the occasional wraps occur. Think mainly when these a bit of slack combined with wind, or maybe when I laid the rod down on the beach to release a fish. They mainly only nuisance value27/09/2010 at 6:40 am #16057yellowfinParticipant
i always check before casting my holder is tapped on but light can clip on and off27/09/2010 at 7:09 am #16058
I find when preparing for a cast there would be no (or reduced) release of line when the bail arm is lifted if the line has wrapped itself.
