It's the simplest thing in the world. Once you get the setting on the reel right and learn to use your thumb it's a piece of cake. I don't know where your located at, but if your anywhere around me, I would be more than happy to teach you.

Tobin’s guidance on how to set the centrifugal mechanism on the LH side of the reel is good stuff. Many people never adjust that at all.

One tip for the spool tensioner dial on the RH side. Hold rod parallel to the ground and let the lure fall to the ground. The dial tension should allow the lure to fall slowly to the ground and when the lure hits the ground, your spool should go an additional 1/4 turn or less. This is a good starting point. Make a few casts and then make additional adjustments from there.

Learn to feather the spool with your thumb during the cast. This skill comes with time and it makes a very big difference as each cast will vary depending on wind, lure weight, your casting style, etc.

I appreciate that. I live between Pt Lavaca and Palacios but have been to Sargent a few times. I may holler at you the next time I’m headed that way.

Another thing to add on the Mettle baitcaster is that it has those little boots for the centrifugal brake system. Be careful when you adjusting those, I've had a few pop off when I went to turn them on, they are tiny. I try not to adjust too much on the water unless necessary. Also, on the mettles if you tighten the spool tension knob too much you will have problems getting the side plate back on unless you weaken the knob again. I've learned the hard way on the reel, but it's a solid reel and will last a long time.
