A call to ABU customer service will get you the "official" answer. However, it's nearly impossible, or almost meaningless, to describe reel performance via "inches per crank". Retrieve rate specifics will be greatly affected by spool diameter/circumference. More line on a spool equals greater spool diameter, which equals more inches retrieved per spool revolution. Smaller spool diameter equals a lower rate of retrieve. Your "inches per crank" rates are always smallest at the start of your retrieve, and always largest toward the end. Likewise, the amount of line you're retrieving is always changing. IMHO: Put as much line on your ABU as your comfort zone allows, and pay more attention to gear ratios than "inches per crank".

I agree completely with Chief. Gear ratio is what you are looking for not a variable stat. Ever since people started using Trinidads, which advertise 48 inches per crank, that seems to be the info people are looking for. However, it is still incredibly variable. But if you want a more definitive answer, we tried to measure it last year to compare to a Trinidad TN 12. A full 7000i Pro Rocket. Both were spooled with White 100# Tuf-line Plus. The Abu picked up about 32 inches per crank - If I remember correctly.

It's relative to how full the spool is and at what point in the retrieve you're at.

Saltist 50? Their 40 model does 48 inches per crank at full capacity, 30 and 20 do less and are physically smaller than the 40 or a 7000.

And which trinidad is uncomfortable? There are at least 3 model's/sizes all with different line pickup rates. The 16N is the big one, about the same size as a saltist 40 or a 7000, might be a tad larger.

jred sry bout the 50 had the revo stuck in my head comparing to the saltist 30 i tried the 16n last year and didn't like it it just felt akward might not have been all the real was on a freinds rod which is a 8' okuma the handle seems to be thicker on this as well I already have a 7000 was given to me and its not exceptionally comfortable either but i make do it was free.

Saltist 30TH (tall/Narrow)is the most like the Trinidad for burning. I feel it helps to have a longer rod with the high speed...minimum 8'6" otherwise I feel like I'm fighting the rod and tougher to keep the lure in the water, figure 8's etc.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
