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.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
