First Multiplier: How Do I Use It?..

Post by Danyolb »

Hey All.
Newbie here :)

I thought i'd purchase myself a multiplier to check them out before I really invest in a good one. I have been fishing on the cumbrian coast lately due to living on the sea side..

Anyway I purchased a Fladen multiplier for sea fishing the 880 model.

LEVELWIND
2 BB
MULTI DISC STAR DRAG
PRECISION BRASS GEARS
DUAL CAST CONTROL
HIGH SPEED POWER RETRIVE
USE FOR BEACH / PIER OR BOAT
GEAR RATIO 4.8.1

Anyway how do I use it please, Theres an on/off switch, a button to press in which clicks when you reel, I was also wondering how to tighten/loosen the drag..

Thanks all. much appreciated.
Daniel

The reel you have is designed primary for boat or pier fishing, it is not a casting reel as such.
To tighten the clutch tighten the sra drag behind the handle.

The on and off switch is the ratchet control and most folks dont bother using it so leave it in the off position,
Cheers
keith :D :D

Thanks. so what is the ratchet used for?
And also what is the screw to tighten on the reel its self for (not the drag one)

Thanks for the reply!
Will it cast better than a normal reel?

Ratchet is a great bite indicator at night. If your looking away from your reel for example bass fishing then the clicking away of the ratchet will indicate a bite. Level wind multis wont cast that far in my experience as one without but its a good starting point.
