I saw Breakaway has a devide for spinning reels that mounts to the rod, and holds the string for you instead of using your finger. They are selling them for $19. Any of you using these? They sound pretty good. I still can't get used to surf casting with a 12ft rod and a spinning reel. I guess I don't let the go at the right time and the line always pops my finger, and I lose distance with the cast. This might help alot.
