Question about Shimano REELS TYR20 Tyrnos Lever Drag Reel, 12II
Just bought an Exage 4000RB. It is my first advanced reel and I don't have a clue how to use the drag and other features. Amazed no instructions were enclosed. Just maintenance details. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
The drag is set by turning the knob which secures the spool to the reel.
To cast, hold the line against the rod with index finger on right hand. Then flip the bail open which frees the line to come off the spool. The bail, when it gets to a certain point will lock open. When casting, release your finger on the line when the rod gets to 11 o'clock.
Flip the bail back by turning the reel handle -- the bail will pop back over the reel -- then you're ready to reel it in.
The bail is the wire-like device on the top of the reel.
There is probably a button/switch for turning anti-reverse on & off -- when on, this keeps the reel from turning backwards when force is applied to the line.
I think those are the highlights.
