Re: tatula ct noise

I have a Tat Sv that has a "rattle" when ripping a trap or chatterbait, sounds like it's coming from the inductor. Going to swap the palm plate brg and see what happens. A jig or worm it's fine, only happens with a vibrating bait. :-k

Re: Bantam MGL reviews?

I have 2, they fish just fine. With the advancements in plastic, polymer, carbon fiber, etc. I'm not concerned about a plastic pawl. If it breaks "I got a guy" ;)

Re: Alphas R Question

I'm assuming you are talking about the knot where the line is tied onto the spool? I can try it but I m not so sure that would solve the problem.
