As Reel wiz says they can take a bit of getting used to, I myself found that I was releasing the line too early and the trajectory was far too high although my drection of cast improved.

At the end of the day it is well worth the few quid as I have seen a lad whose finger was cut to the bone due to line slip during the cast, not a pretty sight.

Hi Andy

Have a look at the Breakaway Cannon Thumb Button. I've got one on my 2nd rod and its brilliant. I'm not sure if this is the same as the Breakaway one , but m8 it works.
I'm not sure why its called a thumb button , because you use the same finger as what you use to hold your line with without it , if you know what I mean.

If you want , I'll take a picture of how I've mounted mine and post it.

Cheers

I was going to ask about use of finger rather than thumb but the photo clears that up.I've read that the cannon is more robust than the thumbuttons I have and less prone to accidental line release during a hard cast,don't know as I've not used either before now,which do you think would be the most comfortable to use of the two?

I've never used the thumb button , But there is no way that the line will release without you lifting your finger ( using the cannon ).
If your drag is not set , the line could slip forward , if that makes any sense.

To release the line you simply lift your finger as you would in a normal cast .

During the cast there is absolutely no pressure on your index finger at all.

I have used multipliers all my life , but I think that all fixed spool rods should come with one of these fitted as standard. big grin big grin big grin big grin

I did a post on the cannon some years ago saying how pleased I was with it. As has been pointed out earlier to me the reason it has not gained in popularity is that it wasn't marketed properly. I firmly believe that if it was remarketed then most coffe grinder users would own one.

For about 8 retail you would have to go a long way for an esential bit of kit.
