Hello,

 

I was wondering if anyone was interested in purchasing strike guards. I will have a new improved design available soon. The improved design allows the line to be set easily with one hand. 

 

They will be $15 ea and discounts for larger orders.

 

 

Regards,

A little descriptive info and maybe even a photo or a drawing might attract more interest.

 

I've been fishing (mostly fresh water) for nearly 70 years and am not at all sure what you are offering.  Chances are I'm not the only one.

The strike guard is used when bait fishing. It attaches to the handle and holds the line with and adjustable amount of tension. With the line in the device you can open the bail so when a fish strikes it releases and allows the line to free spool. All you have to do is close the bail and set the hook, no more messing with the drag. It basically turns any spinning reel into a bait runner. They work great for trout which will spook easily.

 

I tried attaching some pictures but its not working. Maybe because I'm a new member.

Re:  pictures - it was the "new member" thing that blocked you but if you have photos on an internet site that allows sharing, you can post a link.

 

Thanks for the description/explanation.

 

Note to any who aren't familiar with US angling terms:

Drag = clutch

Spinning reel = fixed spool reel

I'm not sure about that, no-one's been able to use that feature for quite some time now.

 

I'll try again here, if no pic appears below then it's still not working.

 

Nope, not working.
