Plainer Board Releases Breaking Braided Line
« on: July 12, 2018, 10:01:32 am »
I have Offshore OR12 Planerboards which have the red and orange releases. (OR16 & OR19) I went walleye fishing in Quinte last fall and I had problems with the braided line breaking where it was attached to the planer board. After a couple of break-offs I stripped the braid off my walleye reels and put some monofilament on and I had no further issues.

Last Saturday Salmon fishing, the braid backing broke where it was attached to the Planerboards and I lost a nice fish and a 10 colour leadcore.

I have since respooled the leadcore reel but I used monofilament backing to avoid further break-offs at the release clip.

I believe lots of guys are running braid off of planerboards. I'm curious to know if anyone else has had this type off problem. If so, what solutions were employed as a remedy?

Thanks, Kevin

This is our second year running copper with braid backing with no issues yet (fingers crossed). How are you attaching your planers to the line? Do they slide down or stay in place on strike?

I lost a full copper line setup last year off a TX44.  Braid broke
