kinda disappointedBought two of these and we used them for the first time this past weekend. Both of us had the same issue: after casting, the metal bar that's supposed to snap over to allow reeling the line in wouldn't snap back. We had to manually push the metal bar over. In doing that, there was enough time lapsed that there would be slack in the line and then it would tangle. We've had a lot of Skakespeare rods over the years and love them, so there's just something about this one that wasn't working for us.
