I notice on my salmon trip that when I was fighting a fish my reel would twist where it sets in the reel seat.Has anyone ever had them break?
If noone ever had one break I'll feel better about it but it's really scary when your fighting a fish and you feel the reel twisting on the rod
I know Graphite is strong but HOW strong?
Everything has a breaking point whether due to fatigue or just poor construction.I've seen a winch on a machine bend a 2" plate of High carbon steel like it was nothing the only thing that stopped it was the drive shaft snapped off the transmission.
