Skipping with casting reels is the right way to deliver a lot of lures to the sweet spot (over spinning), but how to contend with those annoying backlashes or "professional overruns" as they're often referred? Elites Series pro Brandon Palaniuk shows you how to adjust the tension dial and magnetic brake to minimize or eliminate the problem. All baitcasting reels have a tension dial and many also have a magnetic brake for refinement, and each has a setting placement that's ideal based on the weight of lure being fished. These aren't static settings - they should be changed often when swapping out lures, and Brandon shows how easy it is to adjust to perfection.
