Has anyone else picked one of these up? I found them for $30, which is a deal. It seems to me that they rushed them out before 13fishing reveals their 'Ice Ninja' reels, which will be a similar product. I doubt those will be $30.

Thanks for the tips guys. I tried everything with no results so decided to have new line put. Problem solved!!! By the way I love the real. The free spool works great. Got mine at Gander for $25. Bought 2. Cool

You have to watch your jig as it falls. If the jig is off kilter, or the plastic/waxie/spike/mousie isn't fitted straight, it'll spin on the way down. I've had a hell of a time ,once with black plastic and a dark lake bed in 12 feet of water. couldn't see if the jig was spinning on the drop or not..... and that was at prime time 4:30ish.... Good Luck to you!

I was using a tiny jig for bluegills. I know there is no line twist with these reels, but my baits spin like tops. I made sure the line was put on the correct way. Only thing I can think of is its faulty spool of line. Very FRUSTRATING!!!!

Jigamabob.... The line can't twist with this reel.maybe the bait you are using. raps without a swivel are good for twisting line, or jigging spoons.

Bought one of these reels and the line twist is terrible.

They are selling for good money on E bay now, usually between 50-80 bucks, even used, if your looking to get rid of it sell now. Haven't used mine much but for $15 from eagle claw it was a good deal.

I bought one early in the ice season , wished i had bought three. fish a lot in 15to 20 feet of water and if set right useing the little break system on the side of the reel works great . Can adjust for different size and weight of jigs. Will purchae at least two more for next year.

I used mine all season and loved it. I fished in temperatures from 0 to 40 degrees and it performed well. I really like the lack of line twist and it was easy to use. I had a friend who has never ice fished before give it a try and he had it down in 5 minutes time.
