Braking reels...The solution is to slow the rotation of the spool in time with the lead.

I'm getting ready to cast a multiplier for the first time, a Daiwa Tournament 7HT, and am seeking some advice.

I've set the spool's float up and have been experimenting by tugging on the line and playing with the cast control cap, so that at one setting the spool, via the end plates, will offer just enough resistance to prevent over-run and the other setting sets the spool back to the free-wheel, thus allowing one setting for casting and one for fishing, is this the way to go, or do the centrifugal brake blocks do the job?

Please feel free to elaborate if my question is to simple.

Would be appreciated.

Cheers

Thats all to complicated the brake blocks and oil do the braking once you have set end float leave it alone

the end flaot that you want is so the spool just slightly moves side to side to tight and it can damage bearings and effect your cast badly,

set it up with 2 big brake blocks and red rocket feul and the line level just below level a couple of mm then cast if its to slow change blocks to smaller ones or maybe 1 large block this will be trial and error

the 7ht is a very user friendly reel any questions please ask

Yes you will! watch the lead as it goes out and thumb the spool as the lead nears the water. Smoothness is the key when launching the lead without causing overruns, the overrun as the lead enters the water must be stopped by you Wink

Hope this helps,

yeah soon as the lead hits the water stop the reel for extra grip on the cast use a bit of inner tube on your thumb
