Reel cover

Post by chrisg_sdcf » Thu Jul 18, 2019 10:17 pm

I'm looking for reel covers and was about to buy a bunch of tackle warehouse covers but saw a few reviews saying they bled on the reel and stained them. Has anyone here had an issue with this? I have some reels that aren't black and wouldn't want this to happen.

Also looking at the reel glove. Any issues with that cover?

Don't buy those ones because they don't protect the handle. Buy the Daiwa type ,they cover the handle=more protection.

The shimano reel covers work good too.

Yeah, they look nice but I forgot to mention I have daiwa reels. Might give someone a heart attack. I actually just got my steez and really like the cover that came with it except you have to remove the lure first.

Punch a couple holes in them with one of those rotary hole punch tools to allow the reel to breathe - people put them away wet and corrosion / mildew will start to set in.

I have used the TW covers for years and never had any problems.

I'm not worried about the handles, does it protect the frame/body well?

Yes- covers the entire reel well and the handle sticks out.

Cool, I have a Sol, Fuego, and sv103 that I'd rather didn't end up with black bleeding on them (mostly the orange Sol)

Ended up going with the reel glove for my setups. I found a bunch of steez covers but it wasn't worth $15 each to me compared to $6
