In line boards- necessary Modification.

Recommended Posts

I was very frustrated with the clips on my inline boards. They will not hold braid. So, I replaced them with Sam's pro releases. $10 each, worth every penny. See pictures. No more problems.IMG_20180614_054123710.jpgIMG_20180614_054150229.jpg

I used a big split ring so they stand up. I wasn't sure how the release was going to react to being in the laying down position??

I must be an idiot (no comments), I have those Sam's releases and can't get them to release properly to save my life. Everyone loves them, but me, which means I'm the problem. LoL

I've havent had too much of an issue using the new updated clips on the church boards with 30lb dacron backer, but that might be due to Dacron being so much thicker than comparable test braid.

 

My buddy uses those Sam Pro Releases and swears by them.  I haven't played with them much but my first impression was that they're a little difficult to get to release.

I use the Sam's releases with lead core, and braid.  I have not had any issues when using them.

 

Pap, I use the split ring too (I have questioned whether I should affix it to the arm so it lays down, but it works so why even try?).

I'm just not sure if the release needs to be put on in a certain direction. When I'm at the boat tomorrow I'll take a pic and someone can help me out please.

Thats why I went with a split ring so they stand up right and swing back naturally shorter amount of line needed for the tattle tail to operate which is no big deal. They set up the same way as a blacks release does, then the board swings back on one of those pin clips, just have to make sure the line is behind the pin. Then you fight the fish not the board and the fish 150ft to the boat remove the board now you fight the fish, with the release you get to fight the fish the whole distance. If you don’t have the pin clips I wouldn’t recommend this as you’ll be chasing your boards around the lake. I haven’t lost a board since switched to the pin pad.
