Repairs

Recommended Posts

So if ur like me an say ill fix my rods or reels later well do.  The more repairs on ur equipment the less performance u will recieve.  So before events make sure all equipment is at 100 percent.  Dont procrastinate ur equipment when u need repairs

 Religiously repair "all" my gear, including waistcoat, hat, tackle box etc. after every trip home. I even change my line, in venue or at home, when it reaches 75%. Line is cheap lol.

Yup. I unequip / move everything to home storage after every lake. Repair everything, scrap lines and reload for the next place I'm going to.

When it goes bang ;)

Seriously, you can take it way down to single figures. Just expect that repair bill to be high..

Got hit by a 20k+ repair bill a few days ago after a long trip, that stung.

Overloading your net seems to raise the repair costs as well.  Always trying to squeeze another in fish in there when it’s full or close to equates to a 5k+ repair bill :$

Someone once suggested having a spare reel, line, etc in the backpack when in comps or tourneys was good practice which I found to be solid advice. Guess it falls under the concept of good planning.

At what point % does equipment exhibit performance problems?

 

Only one thing I have noticed so far is if u use a line beyond 20% then u will see there is no line tension at all. 

One more thing but I am not sure about this,  if u use a rod beyond 60% damage I think there is a little drop in casting distance but once again I am not sure about this because I have used it only twice.

I've had my line showing 2% on different setups without any issues. That was with a heavy #6/0 crankbait swinging on the end of it catching Uni Northern Pike. Braided or Floro, can't remember, sorry.
