I have been a BIG fan of the "Blacks" brand releases for years and for the last 2 weeks I have given Silver Hordes "Sams Pro" releases a hard trial.
I guide 7-12 trips a week and use these releases hard, constantly resetting lines and I have to say I LOVE these releases! Like anything else, new gear takes some time to get used to it, but I am sold. They are adjustable for tension and work great with braid or mono. I get zero false releases with proper asdjustment and these releases allow very light biting and timid lake trout to trip them, and when they dont, a sharp snap of the rod tip lets them loose. You dont have to yank the rods hard to finally get the line out, and chance losing the fish.
Give them an honest try and I think you will like them. Their Sams terminators are also awesome, simple, strong and reuseable!
Thanks Silver Horde for making sensible, quality gear!
