I just purchased a new REVO MGX-SHS 7.9:1, love the reel, I use mostly 15 lb big game line. I seem to get a lot more over-run on the spool ,than I do on my chronarch mg100 , is it the reel or the line?
or even worse, is it ME ,
I have only been using a baitcaster 40 years ....
Yes it's you...but just you not used to a new reel! :-) As mentioned above, don't over fill, loosen mechanical brake till lure falls and put other brake about 1/2 setting. Then fine tune as you get used to it. That MGX is a sweet reel especially with lighter lures. You will get used to it.
