    Rattlesnake Reel

    Posted by Jared on 14th Jan 2020

    My wife wasn't excited about screwing and mounting rattle reels into the walls in our new house... The rattle reels worked great and easily connected to the Catch Cover Safety Cover. The reel handle is also a convenient addition when not pulling up fish by hand.

    Rattlesnake Reels

    Posted by Debbie Larson-Hurt on 20th Jun 2018

    My husband and I are sold on these! They are so easy to install and remove with the puck system. We have several reels with different riggings that we keep on the wall out of the way and we just switch back and forth depending on what we are fishing easy!

    We love this product! The interchangeable puck system is amazing and so easy to use. We are also happy it is made locally and ships to us for free! We plan to buy more products next season!

    Idea for improvement

    Posted by Cory Nelson on 30th Jan 2017

    I like the Rattlesnake reel. One quick improvement you could make is to use a plastic or metal locking wing nut instead of the regular wing nut. This would allow the wing nut to be a little more difficult to turn, so you could adjust the tension; but not become so loose that the nut falls off. I lost one down the hole right away. I put another metal wing nut on and then took a pliers and roughed up the threads on the end of the 1/4 " bolt so the wing nut stops before going off. A locking wing nut would accomplish the same.

    solid product

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Jan 2017

    Well built solid product, rattles are plenty loud, easily stored away when not in use. Nice to see someone making a reel that you can fit into awkward hole positions. Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is that the tension sometimes tightens when winding or unwinding reel. Seems as though a small felt washer or something similar would help that problem.

    Perfect for what i needed

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Mar 2016

    Very easy to install. I like the option of being able to take them off and on as needed. Can't wait to use them again. Delicate enough for panfish but strong enough for gamefish.

    good overall product

    Posted by Jake on 27th Feb 2016

    They have made a drastic improvement of this product from its original design. I purchased one of the original rattle snake reels and the tension system lobed when the line was peeled off. This revised model is much better allowing the line to come off smoothly. It utilizes a wing nut design that allows for a much better tension control. My only complaint would be that the flexible arm is loose at several of the sockets so bending it to the optimal location is more difficult, but still achievable. I would also add a soft (possibly felt) washer under the wing nut because the molded plastic spool is not perfectly flat. This allows for very precise tension control. This may be an issue if it freezes.
