13 Fishing Free Fall Ghost??
« on: Aug 10, 2017, 06:16 AM »
I see they 13 Fishing is coming out with a new version of the free fall.  Has anyone played with one of these or know about them?  I was wondering how much they weighed?  Thanks.

Says here it weighs in at 1lb. Sounds like it'll be alot more "hardwater friendly" with the composite frame.

Won't solve the freeze up issue on the spool and casing though.  I wish they would find some way to alleviate freeze up on the spool, it completely destroys the "FreeFall" concept.  I would rather have a fix to that than weight although I don't know how they would fix that without completely re-designing the FreeFall.

Good concept,  I don't have one but imagine they work well in a shack?  They are coming out in October if I remember correctly?
