Re: How To Cast A Alvey Side Cast Reel

One thing that needs to be mentioned is that if your only using light line line the 12 pound in the video you then need a softer rod and cant really power into a cast . Alvey's can reach big distances but need to be set up just line any other distance rod.

Love the older video's though .

Though in regards to the breakaway cannon these are good if you are intending casting heavier leads though they are a ...
