Catch Cover rattlesnake rattle reels

12 posts in this topic

Was thinking about getting some rattlesnake rattle reels and maybe even their multi-flex rod holders.   Are the rattle reels worth getting ?  Pro's - Con's ?.  I like the idea of being able to replace the rattle reel with the rod holder.

Catch cover is great to work with. Lifetime warranty. If it breaks send it in and they replace it. I had an old rattlesnake that broke and they replaced it with the new improved one for free. I bought 3 rattle snake and 3 multi flex holders for the ice castle haven't used them yet but the quality and build seem to be very solid, and I look forward to using them. 

If any of you want I think I have a coupon they sent me from buying stuff that will take like $10 or so off your order.

Any idea what they improved upon?   If you hadn't used them yet and one broke or did it come broken from shipping ?   I thought I read somewhere that the line can get wrapped around the outside of the reel - is this what they improved ?

They work very well, as long as you don't kick them off or step on them. I think they are second best to lindell's but very close in quality and smoothness.

I had use the old rattle snake before, jut not the new designed ones. I hear the new ones are better for setting the pressure. The old rattle snake rattle wheel I had had a c clamp on the end for use in the portable that you ran off a tube. To adjust pressure on the rattle wheel there was a plastic pin. Now they made it so it is a metal butterfly nut. Much better design. The reason my old one broke was due to the yellow neck snapping. It was in my portable tub and must have got out of its basket and it was tumbling & crashing around in the tube with a 50lb jiffy model 30 while being pulled with a 4 wheeler on pretty ruff terrain.

Lake mary is known in the summer for northern and walleyes.  Some of the lakes around Phoenix have some big slabs and also stripper which will start to run soon.  The northern and walleyes are catch and release or kill and take immediately as they are non native and eat the trout.

    •     thanks pikestabber!!!  that will work!!!!
    • One of the young fellas in the extended family thinks he needs to buy a Bushmaster 5.5 rifle for general use and because he is now living in what he calls a "nervous tension" part of the Twin Cities.  Franky, it is all "nervous tension" to me but never mind,  what do those of you who actually own and shoot Bushmaster rifles,   about which I know nothing, think of them for quality, price and dependability. Personally, I'd rather have a Beretta 92FS or a nice little Ruger LC9mm and a REAL rifle is a bolt action, blued metal work of art with a birds-eye maple or burled walnut stock!
    • Cool pics, good job.
    • Wisconsin was a bust.   There were plenty of birds around, but they clearly are well educated when it comes to hunters.  Most hens were going to nests early, but nothing would respond to or come to calls of any kind.  I watched many birds that I would call to in a field turn and walk away, even jakes and gobblers with no hens.  Some birds would sprint out of sight!    I did come very close to a nice gobbler but forgot my range finder in my blind and didn't shoot when I thought he was a bit too far.  Ranging the area later proved otherwise...  I also had another group with a nice gobbler and a few hens that I had been chasing multiple times, they started going away from my calling, so I crawled up behind some thick pine trees to get close for an ambush shot.  Of course a hen busted me at 15yd and they disappeared...     After two solid days of rain, and this morning's rain with zero birds heard or seen I packed up and went home.  My brother called to tell me he shot a bird in the spot he told me I should go to...    All in all I only heard two gobblers actually gobble in three hard days of hunting, neither would come to me.  Many more seen.  I only heard one hen yelp back to me, again saw many others that would not make a peep...
    • So as far as anyway knows there should be no adverse effects except for extra work in the fall.
    • At my age Eyeguy I'm just trying not to lose too many.
    •   Sorry. Cell service down there was horrible. Had to wait till I got back to a real computer.
    • Kept me waiting long enough  congratulations Don
    • another good trick for good maters is once the tomatoes start forming is to put a tablespoon of epsom salt by the stalk about every 3rd-4th watering!!!!!!!! i'm a believer!!!!!!!
