due to the fact that this reel is a down right death trap when casting i have cut the bail arm off with an angle grinder :lol: :lol: :lol: after snapping a rod and then nearly removing my finger i just lost faith in this reel ,i used it last night and am glad to say it works fine ,in fact my distance prob improved as i wasnt worring about the rod being ripped from my hand with my fingers following it :roll:

:twisted: Ha, sweet revenge! Hope you made the bail arm suffer Roger, red hot glowing and ground to smithereens until the last remainders have disappeared with an uttering of appropriate spells and courses into the red hot glowing Shimano bail arm hell :lol:
Or did you just feck it into the bin... :roll: :wink:
