I was having problems with some of the thinner (Slickshooter, Lazer) lines slipping in between the spool and frame of some of my open cage reels.
I decided to try closing in the gap between the spool and frame using Loon UV Knot Sense. After cleaning any oil off with alcohol, I put 2 dots each on both upper and lower contact points, making sure to reduce the gap as much as possible. So far, it's working very well, and I haven't had a problem since....Thought I'd share it with the folks here.

This is why I just posted that I'm looking for a trout spey clicker. Going to give this a go on my Echo reel. Thanks!

Thanks for channeling your inner McGyver and sharing. Love the super simple, inexpensive, elegant fixes. Low cunning at it's finest.

Now to go see if I have any knot sense sitting around?

I suppose epoxy might work also, but I like the UV because I can zap it in place before it has a chance to level out.
