    I gotta "ignorant" question to ask and a complaint.....What's that little teat on the abor of the reel????? Anyone know????

    I've been on Berkley's site and Abu Garcia's site and surfed for information on reels and line....It's a shame that these big companies are only concerned about selling something and not providing info to existing customers....This really gets under my skin....I was searching for the answer to the "above" question and it didn't even list a skematic for the reel.....I didn't even recieve a "decent" operating manuel with the reel I got at Cabela's in Dundee, MI.....Oh well, I'm through gripeing now.....Have a great day.....Dwight

    Dwight I don't understand your question. Is something on the reel not working? I own several of these reels and have had no problem. You can go to Abu web site and run off :lol: a break down sheet. You can also E-mail them and they will send you an answer to a problem.

    Mickey,

    Thanks for responding....No, everything is fine with the reel...I'm gonna spool line on the reel.....It's a new reel and it has what appears to be a mushroom shaped metal "stud" in the middle of the arbor...I guess you're supposed to "tie" the line to it to spool line on the reel.....Dwight

    That is to catch the new line when spooling.

    Stormcaster,

    That little "mushroom" lets you tie the slickest line to it without having to use tape or backing of any kind to keep your line from slipping on the spool.I think it is great for the newer "Slick" surfaced lines.I love you Brothers and Sisters.Peewee

    It's like Alfred said, it's for tying off braided line without having to use a mono backing to keep the lind from slipping.

    Thanks guys,

    That's the way I thought it was.....I like the idea of tying braided line with no slippage....I'm going to give the braids a try.....Dwight
