    Default Rocket launchers

    Anyone else have an issue riding with their rods in the rocket launchers on the T-top? Never had this issue on my last skiff but this one is constantly breaking the lines, tangling up, etc. This is on a CS 218 dlv. I know it's a bumpy ride but man it's frustrating.

    Hook the lure down by the handle or hook keeper, then grab the line about mid rod and twist the line around the rod and lock it over one of the line guides. Also do this when storing rods.

    I've tried that and still same result. I almost think the bouncing around is causing the reels to crank until the line snaps, or in one case, the tip. I tried bungie straping the cranks but that didn't work either. Congrats on the retirement.

    Thanks for the well wishes.
    I always back off the drag after wrapping the line around rod. (Don't know if this saves the drag system, but it can not hurt.)
