Did you know there's a way to tune a multiplier to make the dreaded over-runs impossible - well, almost..?
Dave Lumb says: "Rig up the reel on a rod ready to fish and attach a lure to the trace. Reel the trace up to the tip ring and, holding the rod horizontally, disengage the spool and allow the lure to drop unhindered. If the spool continues to revolve when the lure hits the ground (throwing loose coils of line) the casting brake is set too slack. Tighten this brake a little and repeat the process."
