Re: Metal wishbone FAILURE

May be worth keeping a record of how many times a metal wishbone is reused and scrapping them after a certain number of changes. Checking for micro-cracks as mentioned earlier may be worth doing,...

No, I have lots of tips, but I thought about buying the selection in the last photo. On a polespear I use multi-prong cluster heads or "prangers".

10 meters of line, a shaft and a fish were at stake, but pop your reel and you lose all that, the rest of the line and the reel as well. Unless the reel is an independent floater.
