Strike Master Reel Clamps!

A good reel clamp is an essential in my opinion whenever you fish higher than 20 lb lines.  I remember going to a fishing seminar a decade or so ago and watching Ronnie Kovac demo a Penn 114 in a trolling application.  He had another guy grab the line and pull on it while Ron held onto the bending rod.  Suddenly there was a loud noise and BOOM, the reel went flying off the rod.  The guys didn't bother to put on the clamp, the reel's foot bent under pressure and popped out of the reel seat.  Not a good thing during a demo, and a real catastrophe when you're on a fish.  

Here's the Great Stuff about these Machined Aluminum (and anodized) reel clamps.  The six sizes offered will fit virtually every reel on the market (or at least 97% of 'em).  The clamps are anodized in black and gold.  The gold clamps are made two ways, one matching Penn Internationals and one matching Shimano's Tiagra line which has a lighter shade of gold.  The three larger size clamps feature an eye (shown on the gold clamp above) which is useful with a lanyard or even better as a hook-keep when the line isn't in the water. You can use your existing reel's hardware, too! If you don't have your hardware, Backbone offers some useful kits for most every reel on the market. These things are well made, well thought out, priced right and capable of fitting just about every reel you own. They'll fit Penn, Daiwa, Shimano, Avet, Newell and many reels.

Not sure which one to buy, figure the smaller the better. There is some wiggle-room for your bolt spacing, so more than one size may fit your reel. Size 1 offers 1 1/4-1 1/2", size 2 @ 1 3/4- 2 1/4" and size 3 2 to 2 3/4" - post measurements. There is some overlap, usually best to go small rather than larger than needed.

Daiwa Accessory Reel Seat Clamp

Here's something that many guys have been waiting for. I know Max here at the shop has been bugging me about this since ICAST. Daiwa showed off a wonderful accessory at the show, a reel clamp that fits most reel on the market. While it was made to fit their Saltiga 15-50, Saltist 20-50, Leverdrag 20-50, Levelwind 20-50 and Line Counter 20-50 (excluding their Big Game Series). As you can see from the images, we put one on a little Luna 300, and she fit! There will be a broad range of application. The piece features a couple spacers to allow a better match for different reels and rods. It's a very nice piece of aluminum, strong, well finished, sleek and smooth. It's very much a precision product, and could be something you've been looking for. They're not cheap, but they're darn good!

Lugless Reel Brackets!
Add the security of lugs to lug-less reels!!!

Here's a much liked, though inconsistently supplied product we've brought you for many years, until they dried up. The old GS bracket was a great idea, but the owner retired and moved to Texas and really was unable to produce the products.* I think he discovered funner things to do living in God's country.... It's been known to happen to Californians who move back to the South (I well know since I spent much of the 80's living there until I was transferred back to California). That's another tale for another time. In any event, we came across another Californian who has a machining business who took up the production of this very worthwhile piece. For those newcomers, the old GS bracket provided a way to add lugs to lug-less reels! Now, that's a darn good thing if you are fishing heavy on a smaller sized reel, or simply want to be sure that a prized reel doesn't take a an unexpected dip when someone gets surprised by a hard pulling fish. The old product was available in two sizes, accommodating Avet's as well as Accurate's and most other manufacturer's products. The new version is NOT available for Avet reels at present, but they do accommodate Accurate, Penn, Daiwa and many other reel manufacturers products. AND, they are now available in five different colors! We have them in Silver, Black, Blue, Gold and of course RED! They are a very nice match to our own Red production Accurate reels. The lugless reel bracket comes without hardware, you will make use of your existing reel clamp's hardware. That should be fine for most applications since the width of the bracket is only about 1/8 of an inch. But, if you have a tight fit on your rod now, you'll probably need to get hold of some longer screws. That on is on you, we can't provide help but Lowes or Home Despot just might get you covered, be sure to check sizes carefully and go stainless steel. The new brackets are well made, and we're very pleased to say: WE'VE GOT 'EM IN STOCK!

The new brackets do NOT come with any hardware. For most reels this presents no problem, the bracket will become rigid once the reel is installed on your rod. For some applications, Accurate reels for instance, it's a good idea to also use two small nuts to secure the bracket firmly on the studs and then mount on your rod. This will require some fiddling and would be best to replace the studs and add a washer and nut instead of using Accurate's stud with nut in-line. We'll cover the hardware since we're better able to grab the right stuff and include what's needed for 1 cent additional charge (because I can't figure out how to make the script work if I don't have a charge...) - just select the last option and write in how many sets of  brackets will be used on Accurate reels so that we include the correct hardware for you.

Trigger Clamp
For Deckhand Rods

Here's an update of an old favorite, combined with another idea, and together they may be just what you've been looking for. Mounting a reel on a deckhand rod, being able to position the reel anywhere you'd like is a great thing for distance casting. The downside is that a fairly narrow reel clamp may allow for some twisting on the rod or some damaging pressure on the cork-tape. The Cork Puppy solved that problem, similarly to Accurate's after market long brace, providing a more secure mounting on your favorite deckhand rod. The new Trigger Clamp being introduced this week takes that to another level with the addition of a trigger which provides even more control during a cast or when you're waiting on a bite. Now, I'll say the product is not perfect, and it may require some fiddling on your part to make it a perfect match to your rod. For some reels, such as the smaller size Accurate reels, it just won't work since there's not enough clearance from the gear case. For some others you may need shorter or longer bolts, that's something to be expected given differences in rod diameter. You may need to use a washer (stainless steel of course) to deal with bolt length or a narrow nut for the reel's bolts. But, for most reels it's a pretty easy fit. That's a downside of making a "universal" product that will work with the majority of reels straight out of the box using their own hardware. With a bit of fiddling this product will work with the vast majority of reels on the market, and for many it will work straight out of the box. Those are my caveats to buyers, and on the positive side we finally have a trigger grip for deckhand rods, and a more secure method of mounting reels on deckhand rods. The positives far outweigh any fiddling which MAY be required to ensure a perfect fit.

There are no accessories packaged with the Trigger Clamp, what you see is what you get. Unlike the Cork Puppy, there's only one size to the new Trigger. It is a 29mm size, so again it's going to fit the vast majority of deckhand rods with the exception of the really fat ones like an Ulua. It's priced right, at $20, a bit under it's more refined alternative, and it's got a TRIGGER! So, a bit of fiddling has a payoff given what it offers folks looking for both security and comfort.

Cork Puppy

A lot of West Coast fishermen use deckhand style rods, rods with a corktape grip wrap instead of making use of a more typical reel seat with a hypolon or cork handle. The corktape deckhand rods are preferred by long-cast guys - jig fishermen, and those desiring a longer rod and longer casts. Additionally, the deckhand rods allow the fisherman to mount the reel using a rod clamp in a more custom, more comfortable and balanced position, again aiding in longer casts. One drawback of this type of handle/grip is that the reel clamp tends to dig into the cork over time. Applying that clamp's pressure over a larger area reduces the grind on the cork and allows for a more secure mount. The Cork Puppy solves the mounting problem quite well. They fit the majority of rods, and reels made. If your intent is to mount a reel (that has a rod clamp) to a deckhand rod, this product just might be a necessity. There are three sizes, measured by the rod's diameter in the area you intend to mount the reel. It's made of machined 6061-T6 aluminum with type II anodizing.

Accurate Accessories

[NewAccurateClamp3.jpg]Accurate has introduced a few new accessory products recently. They introduced their new Pit Bull clamp assembly which goes nicely on a cork tape deckhand style rod. The rod clamp is much wider and less prone to loosening, slipping or getting mounted askew than a typical reel clamp. There's more to grip with on the optional clamp, robust too with six Allen nuts used for the attachment.

It will fit the Aftco #3, Fuji #26 and smaller reel seats as well as corktape rods that are around 1 to 1-1/8 inch in diameter.

For our reels, it will fit all the standard widths, the 665N/600N in all it's forms, the 665NN/600NN in all it's forms as well as the 870N 4:1.

It will not fit any of the 197/400N in any form, 870XN, 500N or B2-870N.
