    does this acid wrap help with the rod torqueing?( twisting) with longer rods and reels with wider spools,

    had this issues with a newell 235 and 850m

    Id like to try it if so. Nice work!!!!!!

    Thats the idea behind it. I have yet to hook anything on this one. Rod is so nice though that it's going in the regular lineup. I load tested it at about 15lbs and there was absolutely no torque. The stripper guide stayed pointing up while the first four guides stayed pointing straight down. I couldn't get the line to hit the blank no matter how hard I pulled. As far as spool width I've only tried it on my SX and MXJ but I think it would be fine on your Newell..
