Too many wind knots
March 10, 2014
I own two of these, a 4000 and 7000. Using Toro Tamer 50 lb line on the 7000, I would get wind knots from time to time using lighter lures. Once I swapped to heavier lures, the wind knots seem to go away. The 4000 had 30lb Power Pro and using just about any sort of lure would cause wind knots. I tried swapping line out, but still the wind knots continued. I plan on selling the 4000 and replacing it.
The reels are great if used for jigging. I've used my 7000 for trolling with good results. Overall, they are great pier or boat rods, but if you're doing a lot of crank bait fishing or casting, go with something else.
Lots of line capacity
