    Great reel

    Posted by Dan on 5th Sep 2015

    This is my 2nd year using the Rattlesnake Reels in my ice house and they work great. Catch Cover should add a rubber band to the arm of the reel to hook your line on. I simply tie a knot in a rubber band and place the hook in the small loop, tighten the reel so there's tension and all I'm all set for reel storage.

    Great product but needs some tweaks

    Posted by David Anderson on 6th Mar 2015

    I replaced all of my 6 Lindell Rattle Reels with the Catchcover Rattlesnakes. I love the mounting system, accessories as I mount my camera to one, and they are well built. My biggest complaint is how the reels are configured, out of the box none of them turned very easy or smooth, even with the drag all the way out. The reels are held on the shaft by a self locking retaining ring and when assembled it appears that it puts too much pressure against the reel. I took them apart and moved the retaining ring back just a smidgen to let them free spool much easier and they work great. The last 2 I simply applied a little outside pressure to the spool towards the open end and they responded well. Looking at the design it would seem as though a simple threaded end of the shaft with a locking type plastic wing nut and a thick felt washer would have made adjusting a lot better and make the removal of the spool easier. The issue of the line going behind the spool was solve by using 25 pound vinyl coated tip up line and tying a swivel then a mono leader, seems to work well. My Lindell's were OK but you could not adjust where they sat and at some point they turned too easy, a fish would run and it would spool off 10 extra feet of line. All of my friends have bought them now.

    good but not great

    Posted by les krenz on 19th Jan 2015

    I have two minor issues, every now & then the line will go over the bach side of the reel & tangle then u probably need to remove the reel from the spindel to free it. Getting it back together depends on some luck.Also the drag adjustment isn't always easy to set & hold a slight pressure on the reel. Despite these minor problems i have used alot of rattle reels and have far more rattlesnake reels than anything else.

    Rattle reel

    Posted by Robert Bertrame on 7th Nov 2014

    Great product. Love them but there are two things that could be changed. I had to mount some on the ceiling and when driving they can wobble out. They should have a latch that allows them to snap together and stay locked. The set screw on one of mine won't stop the reel any more. I'm not sure if I over tightened it or what. I like to snug them up when I store them but it won't stay snug anymore. Maybe the set screw needs to tighten to metal instead of plastic.

    Best Rattle Reel that I know of

    Posted by Ryan on 3rd Feb 2014

    I finally got a chance to try the Rattle Reels this past weekend and they worked great. The quick release from the wall plate is nice for switching from the rod holder to the rattle reel and when you are not using them you can stow them away in a tote. Makes for a nice clean fish house.
    The catch cover company was great too placed my order and the package arrived the next day. They also emailed the status of the order. I would highly recommend ordering directly from Catch Cover.

    Heavy Duty rattle reel

    Posted by South Dakota Iceman on 17th Jan 2014

    This is the best designed rattle reel I've seen. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that if you use mono line on the thing (even 30 lb test) it can get wound inside the reel on the shaft. It isn't hard to get the reel off the shaft to unwind the line but it is extremely difficult to put it back together. My advise is wait until you get home to try to fix the darn thing.

    Very nice and can b moved out of the way if needed. Plus the wall discs work with the rod holders and cup holders so u have options. Rattle wheel, beer or rod holder. Works for me will for u
