Hi fellow BOC members!! I have a question concerning the spool tension knob on my 6500 Abu Chrome Rocket. What is the best setting for this knob? This is the knob on the left side plate of the reel. Do you tighten the knob all the way and back it off slightly? Or is there a sweet spot for the setting? I know if the knob is to loose there is some wobble in the spool when reeling. Your help will be greatly appreciated. :big_smile::big_smile: I already know how to set the mechanical brake knob for casting performance. The knob on the right side plate of the reel. I always back off the mechanical brake knob and the spool tension knob and also the star drag when I'm done fishing. Thanks for the help. Mark..
